 Their other task is to provide mortals with inspiration in the arts and music, a task they relish since it gives them the opportunity to meet artists create new works of art.  Whilst they are part of Apollo'​s court, they come and go freely and regularly go to struggling artists who have prayed to them for help. The artist usually falls in love with the muse and is stricken with grief when they leave again. ​ It is common for the artist to have even greater difficulty working again afterwards and a few have actually killed themselves, knowing they could never match their Muse-inspired work.  Muses are also sent to artists working on a god's commission to make sure the work is of the highest quality. Their other task is to provide mortals with inspiration in the arts and music, a task they relish since it gives them the opportunity to meet artists create new works of art.  Whilst they are part of Apollo'​s court, they come and go freely and regularly go to struggling artists who have prayed to them for help.
