Tambra Kendall for Writers Gone Wild
My Muse has finally come out of hiding.
After a few months sabbatical I'm finally starting to write again. Not as much as I'd like but I'm getting some words on the page. I won't be picky. Some is better than none.
Pushing to write when I'm like this makes everything worse. I've done other things to try and fill the creative well. In my case, lots of singing and playing around with story ideas. Music is a large part of my life. Okay, I listen to Keith Urban. Every day. This has helped me heal. His lyrics speak to me what can I say?
Writing bits and pieces of stories here and there, then leaving them to smolder until I feel the need to re-examine them. No stress, no worries. Part of regaining creativity is having fun and inspiration. Inspiration is important.
I've been re-reading one of my favorite books, Jane's Warlord by Angela Knight. Nothing like a favorite author to help inspire and kick my butt-in-gear. I've tossed the oh-I've-never-written-that-before out the window. I'm writing my first M/F/M menage. Just what my Muses needed to stir the excitement. LOL
My favorite authos play a large part in reminding me of my goals and why I love to write so much. I want to make my readers smile and sigh in contentment as they do for me.
No telling how the story will turn out but the fact that I'm getting something on the page is a good start. As professinals we can't let writer's block stay for too long. Developing methods to combat this problem in our writer's tookit is paranomount.
Life tosses ugly things our way. How we choose to deal with it is the key and knowing how to choose the best path to get us back on track. In my case, I had a series of major stresses to deal with one after another. A little time and care is all I've needed to come back and start back on a daily writing schedule to get me back to where I need to be with the goals I've set.
Hopefully, all will go according to schedule and this short erotic romance will be finished Oct. 1.
If you've been at the same barren writing space as I've been, please know you can move back into the well of creativity. You must refill the well and take care of yourself while doing it. I've started working out everyday and changed my diet. (Ovo-lacto vegetarian.) If I need to make adjustments, I will. I want to be the best writer I can be, to give my readers the story that will stay with them long after they've reached The End.
Hugs to all,
