Missing Muse

Sometimes, we get stuck. I'm not talking about writer's block. I'm talking about those times when you know the scene, you know what needs to happen, and you can get there, but the words simply don't feel right or you don't feel the scene.

This is especially troublesome for those of us who write linearly – like me. One thing that I do to get back in to the groove is to close my eyes and type whatever. I talk about the scene. I ask myself what I need to accomplish in the scene and eventually the rhythmic clack of the keys revives my mojo and off I go!

I hope that helps someone else. What do you do when you're writing vibe if off?


Sorry about a lack of Word of the Post or Scene of the Post…I couldn't think of anything.

ROTFLMAO-how appropriate for the post in question. Are you trying to PROVE I have a sense of humor?
