Coaxing the Muse


So. How do you coax the Muse? This is how I do it. Rob Kistner, at Image and Verse, has invited anyone who'd like to share to explain how they view the writing process, how they coax the Muse. I wrote a wonderful piece on his blog, which was trully insightful and lucid, but which for some reason would not post. Anyhow, a picture is worth a thousand words.

This so funny. Yes, it sometimes feels that way. All antennae plugged in, hoping for a message.
(by the way, I have had perms that way. Only as a teener.)

OMG! Never mind the muse, I always thought you could probably reach outer space with those things!

The poem is perfect. I remember trying to recapture my dreams during the night, pen and paper at hand...never quite made it.

What a great question - I would spend my life trying to answer I think! (For a start do I even believe in a muse? Amuse-ing thought? Sorry ...)

Pictures are a great way to do some freewriting and get the muse going! Will you post a link to your guest blog post when it's up?
