Ideas

Sometimes I find that my mind is swimming with more ideas than I have time to write down. Then, once I do have time I’ve lost the spark that caused me to believe it was a good idea in the first place. 

I’m not sure how the rest of you are when you write but I find this infuriating. Since losing my muse the motivation to write had been difficult to retain. I hate that. I hate that I have to rely on someone else’s existence to make me motivated enough to put in the time and write. Good god do I ever hate it. And yet I find myself hoping each day that I’ll find that muse in one of you in the ether of the Internet. 

The difference in quality between a muse inspired piece and one that is just mine alone is obvious to me. The quality is just so much better with a muse. The lust and passion is so much more tangible. I’d often find myself racing to complete a piece as I tried to keep up with the vision in my mind. Without a muse it seems that work is more work and less exhilaration. A shame. 

…so is there anyone out there that feels this way? Am I the only one? Or do I have an equal; a companion that has the same dilemma  and desires? Do you seek a muse too? Do you want to be…muse buddies? Pushing each other to ever higher escalations of debauchery? If so… let me know…I’m waiting to meet you.

  1. I’m think I’m lucky to see the blank page as a challenge – I revel in it. I’m a planner though, so by the time I’m on those first few words I already know where the story is going.

    I find muses all around, too. Men and women I pass in the street, friends, neighbours. Nature is a great source of content and feeds my imagination. Sometimes, if I can’t get an idea that I like, I’ll take a walk, clear my head, feel the sun or the rain on my skin and then the ideas will flow.

    I hope that might help in some way or other – although it’s only my own personal experience. You might not be able to function without a single crystal clear muse, which I can understand.

  2. I love your debauchery. It is not quite my writing style but I do know what you mean. I have all the ideas but by the time I put pen to paper the idea is stale. I have found myself writing at 2:00am in an attempt to capture an idea. I don’t know for me if a muse is what I’m looking for but I do find inspiration from usually quite trivial things all around me. I painting that has struck my fancy. A comment a friend has made. I take a note book with me everywhere and nothing is too small to take note of.
