I’ve always collected things just as I collect memories, so I happen to have many different muses around my office (so many that at times it looks more like a play yard than an office.) Among my current top 3 are:
My Writing Witch – I’ve had this little doll for years and somewhere along the way she lost her broom, but she’s stood by me in good times and bad.
An inspirational magazine cover sent to me by a kindred spirit. It motivates me to be strong and persevere.
My beloved office mate – Pippin, who has never once disagreed with the direction my writing has taken. Such a good boy.
Look around your writing space. What’s there that inspires and motivates you?
