Sometimes I find that my muse is nowhere to be found. I look everywhere – but she is completely vanished! Perhaps she does double duty somewhere else? Is she your muse too? Are you using her right now? Because I would really like to have her back.
A muse can be defined as someone or something that inspires your creativity – music, art, poetry, etc. Although it really something that is inside of you, a part of who you are, what makes you able to create something unique to you. But I think we like to blame some outside source whenever we are having difficulty creating. It makes us feel better to think that it isn’t really our fault. And lately I have really struggled with finding my creative muse/self, which is why I am sure she is hiding or she ran away or she is moonlighting for someone else.
What do you do when your muse disappears on you? Do you just dig deep and hope you find something? Do you get out the bottle of wine and drink about it? Do you change directions and work on something else? Do you write about your creativity and hope that you trigger something? Maybe you go surf the internet and look at what everyone else is working on? Although that often just makes me feel worse! How come their muses are still helping out?
I really hope I can find my Muse soon because it is very depressing to walk into my studio and not be able to find anything that sparks my creativity. Leave a comment below telling me what you do when your Muse disappears on holiday.
