Friday Chat

~ By Melina Kantor 

Hi Everyone! I’m talking to you all from JFK. In a few minutes, I’ll be boarding a plane to San Francisco, where I’ll be for the next two and a half weeks (my mother lives in the Bay Area).

That’s right. I’ve got a vacation, and really, I better use some of my time to write. It’s been – well – more than a while since I last opened my WIP.

Getting back into the story I’m working on is going to take some serious effort. I could, for example, keep working on my soundtrack and collage, and find other ways to get my muses (otherwise known as the “Basement Divas“) on board.

Then again, this scenario could be helpful too:

But, in all seriousness, I would love to know what you do to get your muses talking. Let’s have a chat! What works for you? Music? Gardening? Travel?

Do leave a comment and let us know.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Have a great trip! I don’t even know how I get my muse talking, because sometimes it depends on the day. Often, though, it helps if I skip around to something I’m ready to write, such as a later scene. And sometimes? I have to just force myself to write through the block.
