Have you heard bloggers or other writers talk about their “muse”? Now I’m not putting down the concept of a muse. In fact, I love it when mine shows up. But what if it is nowhere to be found? Can I still write even if my muse is on strike?
Um, yes! Here’s a Slideshare presentation I made a few years back. Even though I wrote this a few years ago, I can confirm that my muse indeed shows up, every single time I sit down and start writing!
So the bottom line is, the best way to coax your muse into making an appearance is to simply sit down and write. Don’t wait for your muse to show up. It will magically appear the moment you start typing. Well, maybe not the very moment, but amazingly soon thereafter. And by the way, the more often you sit down to write, the more your muse will be there to meet you. 🙂
