My Muse has Vanished

I always have an idea of something I want to write about. When I’m doing dishes, or out driving in the car, I’m usually lost in my thoughts, plotting out some new story. But lately, my thoughts have been completely muddled. At first I thought it was the holidays, sinking their teeth in me and keeping things too crazy busy to even think. Yet, the holidays have come and gone, and I’m still stuck.

It’s weird. I’ve picked up a few pictures to “inspire” me and glanced at a few topics, hoping to write anything at all, but I’m just left sitting in front of the computer. Staring. A week ago I forced myself to keep plotting out a story I’d been playing with a month or so ago. Things started going well. I was proud of myself! And then, I realized I was writing a modified version of the book I’d just finished reading.


So my Muse has left me right when I need her the most. Hopefully she turns up before my computer gets too lonely.


About lisamorrowbooks

Lisa Morrow is a life-long reader who treasures fantasy in all forms. Being a middle child in a large family gave her a unique perspective on the world, but few experiences compare to her time spent studying abroad in Cambridge, England and wandering throughout Europe. After her travels, Lisa settled down in Arizona to teach junior high English, and later, to spend time with her young children, husband, and cats. To some people, her life may seem quiet. But to her, every day is spent in a world colored by the imagination of children, and fantastical worlds created by her very own mind.
