Courting the Muse- an Owner’s Manual (Writing Quick Tip)

They say every writer has a Muse. Is your Muse friendly? Always there? A tease? Someone with an unlisted number?

And what does she like?54f6a620-f2d8-4bdc-ad37-a97aa1a18800

It’s not a one size fits all Universe, and each of us has different ways to court the Muse and find inspiration when the well seems to have run dry. One thing you can do to help you through those fallow times is to make yourself a list of things that you do to connect with your inspiration when you’re stuck, so that you can start writing again. Some ideas are

  • Write something different,
  • Take a break,
  • Get up and stretch,
  • Meditate,
  • Do something physical,
  • Drink some water or eat something,
  • Talk your stuck story over with someone else,
  • Play some music that matches what you’re writing,
  • Visualize the story and watch what comes next,
  • Sleep on it,

Or whatever floats your boat.

Keep your list handy and easy to find for those times when the words (temporarily) just won’t come, and every time you break loose of a stuck time, add how you broke free to the list.

And write write write- and say hello to your Muse from me…
