Writing Tip — 46


Writers talk about their muses, the person, or imaginary creature inspiring them to write. When their writing falters or stops, they blame their muse. To me, a muse is nothing more than an idea. There are thousands of ideas out there to write about. It could be a strange sound you heard in the night while home alone, it could be a picture you saw on Facebook, or a person you see walking down the street. Ideas for writing are everywhere! Maybe you had to cut a character or a scene from a work in progress; that scene might be a good start for a short story. Never think or say there is nothing to write about. Pay attention to what goes on around you, instead of staring at your phone and texting  people.
