Never never land

Photo prompt curtsy of. C E Ayr

As I wait for inspiration I find myself wondering, is it time to hang up my pen. Although I still string together flash stories, I am not satisfied with the results. My creative muse seems to be sleeping or perhaps it has locked itself away in disgust at my slothful behaviour over christmas.

Maybe I should consider writing poetry or non fiction! In the meantime I will fire up the engine of my chariot and head into town. Perhaps in time my muse will follow… Never never land maybe waiting.

  1. I can’t count how many times I’ve stared at the prompt picture and then discovered the InLinks page was closed — too late! But there’s lots of times I’ve made it into a story and was very pleased with the unexpected result.

  2. I’ve been away since August. No energy, too much work, staring at the prompts and: nothing. The muse apparently disappeared completely. Now I’m back and what do you know: ideas came back too. Taking a break is often needed. Don’t feel bad about it.

  3. I was going to say what Iain said. Plus, this entry is as good as many of the stories. Sometimes writing about our struggles and reading the comments helps us to see we are not alone and to not give up.

    1. Thank you so very much Dale…I felt the need to explain… being frustrated with the quality of my writing I shut down for a short period, but soon realised that was a bad decision.

  4. I empathize. I know how hard it can be to get back to writing after a break. My brain gives me, “U want mee 2 funkshin. Eh! im gowen bac ta sleeep!” It follows that up with the tongue sputter/raspberry sound. I’ve never been sure why that’s called a raspberry, since raspberries don’t make sounds.
