I realize I haven’t posted in months. That’s because I haven’t been inspired to, I honestly think my muse has decided to say ‘F* you’ I’m going on strike. Someone said in a Clubhouse room I was listening in on that we shouldn’t wait to be inspired by our muse and just write. Yeah right, like that’ll ever happen. If we’re honest with ourselves, every writer needs that tiny spark that gets them to put words on the page and that would be our muse.
The voice that gives us the ideas to write about engaging heroes and heroines slaying dragons or conquering the world that we’ve created for them. Sure, the first draft is crap and we may think what we’ve written stinks to high heaven, but we got that idea from our trusty muse. Mine are my characters whose names and faces I see even before I put the words on the paper. I remember when I created Archer Lincoln from my other Nom De Plume Taisha Demay’s story Rumor Control and how I’d imagine this huge bald black man with his arms folded, glaring at me wondering why I had yet to write his story. I’d introduced him in the book, Love, Truth, and Consequences and he’s been wanting me to tell his story ever since. Then there’s my Kindle Vella story, Texas Strong, probably the first and last story I’ll write set in the fictional town of Dust Devil. It certainly won’t be my last western. Of course, they’ll be more. But I find that world-building is tedious and I’m not very good at it. Lol! Anyway, back to the topic, my muse who I call Lottie has returned in full force after being dormant for weeks. And I’m back to creating the stories I and my fans want to read. There are so many things happening in the coming months, both my pen names will be releasing books in the coming months, so stay tuned for more details. Until next time, Where love resides-Temari
