where the writers are
Writing

Why is it?  I always seem to find so many other things, besides writing, that need my attention. There is the house to clean, the pets to take care of, the laundry, shopping, bills, gardening, mowing, shoveling snow, making calls, paperwork, and more, much, much more.

I'm thinking that writing is not really a job or a disciplined endeavor for me.  It is a creative process.  It is something I must feel to make it work for me.  The juices must be flowing; I have to be in "the zone". 

Once I get there, there's no stopping me.  It does not matter what I am writing.  It can be an article, a brochure, or a book.  I get lost in the project and become totally focused.  My concentration places me in the present moment of creating and I am in my element. 

If I am not feeling my muse then I cannot seem to get going on any writing project.  The inner muse is a funny thing; it comes of its own accord and cannot be forced.  When she shows up it is so easy to become absorbed and get lost in that wonderful place of creativity.  It brings a total feeling of bliss and utter enjoyment.  I really ought to write more often-here's hoping the muse will come for a visit.

Muse in the early morning

seems to find me "in the zone." After those things are attended to first. And before I start them over again... to the next page, in the right order.

Hello Peg, I can resonate with you here:

"If I am not feeling my muse then I cannot seem to get going on any writing project. The inner muse is a funny thing; it comes of its own accord and cannot be forced.

Thank you for sharing your "wisdom in writing" and in true life lessons to master!:-)

Truly,
