So, I finished up some revisions and started looking at some other projects in various stages of progress with the intent of figuring out all that was wrong with them and making it right.
But it didn't work.
I thought. I brainstormed. I sat with my fingers on the keyboard.
So here are a few things to do while you wait for the muse to get to work.
1. Find a spot to sit and watch the flowers grow.
2. Crochet some juggling balls and learn to juggle.
3. Enjoy a bit of wine.
4. Bake some bread.
You know what. No number five. I'm lying to you. You can't wait for the muse to strike, you have to go and hunt it down and make it work for you. If you wait you'll keep waiting.
(Of course if you do the above you'll be relaxed and well-fed and maybe the muse will creep back in on its own.)
So, what do you do when the thoughts are jumbled and won't come?
