When the Muse strikes....

I must admit that this phrase, which I have used as my blog post came into my head as I was thinking about writing.  Essentially I was thinking about doing something about writing.  This is mainly due to the fact that I haven't made much of an effort recently to bang away on the keyboard or to write anything in the little notebook, that makes my handbag that much heavier, just in case I get an inkling of inspiration.

I am writing this post, because my recent writer's block seems to have cleared.  There are a lot of ideas that are circling around in my head, and I feel that I need to get at least some of them down.

I still had writer's block when I came across a post on Gretchen Rubin's blog about Henry Miller's 11 Writing Commandments.  I only had to read the first one before I stopped and started to deliberate. 

1. Work on one thing at a time until finished.

I have been trying to access a hard drive which has a copy of my NaNoWriMo 2011 attempt on it, unfortunately without success.  In this case, I think I am going to start one of the ideas that I had and see where that leads me.  I didn't get enough time during NaNo to think hard about where the plot of the book was going to go.  That is going to be my main focus as I am beginning this new project.
