Summoning the creative muse ...

I haven't had a creative thought or idea in months.


Any suggestions on how to summon my old friend and creative muse?

hmmmmph! If you find it... let me know. I have been looking for mine for about a year. I'll post a post or two, then wander off for months. I blame real life, but the truth is I'm just boring LOL!

I was pretty much thinking I was in a rut myself. I was thinking of taking the car out, with camera and just look for something of interest. Just no time to do it! So, if you get ideas please share.

For me, I take a lot of walks to get my Muse to cooperate with my wishes. I skip bringing an ipod, but will bring the dog on a leash~
Usually by the time I return home things feel alittle more focused.

If that fails.....I read a book :)

Ah foolish mortal ~ one does not summon the muse; the muse summons you. ;)

I'll bet you have had a creative idea or two; you simply haven't recognized it as such. Just start writing, or grab a camera, or pick up a brush and start something; anything will do. It doesn't have to feel inspired. This prompts the muse, once she stops laughing, to take pity our feeble efforts and guide us on our way. It's the action that summons the flow...

That's my theory, anyway. ;)
