WHAT IS A CREATIVE MUSE?
A creative muse is anything that inspires your imagination toward creativity: people, music, movies, books, private thoughts, ideas, or interests. A muse can come in a variety of ways, but should make you think, want to act or create.
A muse can come in a variety of ways, but however they come should make you think, want to act, or create something.
A MUSE SHOULD STIMULATE YOUR IMAGINATION
A few lines to work from – when you finish writing for the
day, start the next chapter or scene – just a few lines so you have somewhere to start from (not a blank page) the next day.
A CREATIVE MUSE IS SIMPLE:
• Photos or artwork
• Movies or books
• Journals with pens
• Natural things – colourful rocks, a perfect stick, unused birds nest
• Collection of desk gadgets
• Picture magazines
• A scene out the window
CREATIVE MUSE SCENES and TRAYS
A collection of things your like, treasure and inspire you to create.
Display a musing in a beautiful way so they stimulate your interest and spark your imagination to wonder or write.
If you want to stimulate your creativity and get your head into your creative space, make yourself a CREATIVE MUSING SPACE so you can draw from its energy to capture and tame your elusive muse.
