Channeling the Muse

Writing can be a fickle thing, and as authors, we understand this all too well. Every artist has experienced waves of creativity, followed by dry spells. It’s easy to maximize opportunities when the creative juices are flowing, like when a writer locks him/herself away for days, weeks, or months until a project is complete, or the creative juices have dried. But it’s those times when a deadline is due, and the waters of creativity have run dry, which is the real test of channeling the muse.

During a creative block, I think it’s essential to stop and do nothing. The art of doing nothing is different than falling into resistance and allowing distraction to take over, like answering emails or browsing social media instead of working on the task at hand. The Italian’s have a concept known as “La dolce far niente,” which means “the sweetness of doing nothing.” Doing nothing creates a space where the systems of the body can reboot to achieve greater productivity afterward.

I know for me, getting into nature and allowing myself to be present in the space and time of that moment is like hitting the reset button to let my mind, body, and spirit open to the creative flow. The art of doing nothing is the art of channeling the muse, where we allow ourselves to be so still that inspiration naturally begins to flood our being. Be creative or do nothing; this is the simplicity of channeling the muse.

This is the story of Abhi, a brave young girl who dares to be different. As she follows the call of her adventurous spirit, she encounters inspiring creatures of the jungle who remind her to face her fears, recognize the beauty of the present moment, and walk the path less travelled.

Enjoy an Excerpt

Mom always tells me, “You need to slow down, and dress up like a princess, wearing your crown.”

Silly Mom, if only she knew. I don’t want to be pretty, and part of the queue. I have so many adventures to create and pursue.

I’d rather be wild and do things that shock her, than dress up in a gown, feeling improper.

Abhi’s my name, and adventure’s my game. My heart is open and it cannot be tamed.

Whatever the quest, I’m up for the mission. Limitless wonder, or focused expedition.
