When Does Your Muse Strike?

When do you think of new stories to write, or new books?  I was sitting at the dinner table yesterday evening and it came to me what my next book is going to be, along with the title.  I had an outline completed in my head and it all took place within a fifteen minute period of time.  It was  one of those times when no effort was being made but it all came together.

I can remember the content this morning, so it was something which touched me.  I find stories coming to me while lying in bed trying to read another book, or watching tv.  It seems anything can get those creative juices flowing.  I find it a rather amazing how my Muse comes into play at the oddest moments.

Todays video is about finding your Muse, just in case you lose it.  Have a great day.

About shirleymclain930

I am a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I like adventure and travel and making friends. I have 6 dogs and 1 cats. They are like having a house full of three years olds. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.

  1. My muse for my first book idea came from my own experience. And while still in the planning stages of my current book, I continue to get ideas and inspiration when I come across interesting people. That’s how I develop the ideas for my characters. I also get new ideas when myself or someone I know is faced with an odd situation. I now keep a writing pad with me at all times just to write down my latest ideas when they strike.
