I had begun a whole thought on the subject of muse and found that I just couldn't get into what I was saying at all. Have you ever done that, started something then found that the direction you were going just felt completely wrong? What do you do in situations like that?
The hardest thing to do sometimes is to just cut it out and begin again. But at the same time that sometimes is the best option you have before you. It hurts to lose not only the work, but also when you are a part of the world you have created, you are cutting out a piece of your life. Sometimes writers are bullies just by necessity.
The idea of a muse can fall into the same trap. Sometimes we become so attached to just one thing, one method of inspiration that it hampers are ability to move forward. As much as it hurts, sometimes you have to move on to something else, step away and find some distance.
Where does your mind go when you begin to write? What do you do when that doesn't work like you expect it to?
