THE CASE OF THE MISSING MUSE
Missing Party: Muse
Description: Unpredictable, Inventive, Capricious
Last Seen: At the end of the previous story
I can’t tell you how many times this kind of case has landed on my desk. Sometimes my writing students didn’t even know their Muse was missing. They had become so wrapped up in the nuts and bolts of story development they hadn’t realized it had vanished somewhere in the process.
Though everyone’s Muse is a little different, they all have certain qualities in common. Based on these, I’ve compiled a few techniques over the years to help you track yours down and bring it back where it belongs.
