The Muse Returns

Merlin’s Beard! (Sorry, after watching Harry Potter 6 in the movies I told my wife I was going to try to make “Merlin’s Beard!” a catch phrase. She didn’t think this was a good idea, but I think it is an awesome one.)

It seems as though my “muse” has returned to me, as I’ve begun two new writing projects in the past week. Both are intended to be novels, although your guess is as good as mine as to if that will happen or not. I almost don’t care. It just feels good to have the creative juices flowing again.

What broke me out of my funk, you ask? Well, I followed my own advice. I “just wrote”. Not only that, but I did it the old school way, pen and paper. I normally prefer to write on the computer — it eliminated the step of transcribing later — but I’ve been so weak to the lure of the Internet I had to get away from it. Thus far, it has worked.

Exciting indeed. Let’s just hope I can ride this momentum for as long as I can.
