Your Voice, Your Muse

Monday, May 19 ~ Albuquerque, New Mexico

Apparently, one blog in my life (this one) isn't enough. A few weeks ago, to help support all you writers (and aspiring writers) out there, I felt moved to create The Voice of Your Muse, a new blog filled with tools, tips and inspiration designed to help get you writing and, more importantly, keep you writing.


Posts include tips for staying in the flow while writing on the computer, for birthing your book and for staying in the moment (and out of judgment). You'll also find inspirational quotes from other writers and a handy list of writing do's and don't's. As well, news from Canada about a self-published author who won the country's most prestigious (and lucrative) literary humor award is guaranteed to encourage all you DIY folks out there.

The blog already has more than two dozen posts and I'm committing to updating at least weekly (generally Sundays), so be sure to check in regularly or add the blog to your blog newsreader.

If you're a subscriber who gets these posts and my newsletters via e-mail, you won't automatically be getting posts from this additional blog. I don't want to overwhelm you with extra e-mail. (If you're not a subscriber, you can subscribe here).

However, I'm considering sending out an e-mail notification when new Voice of Your Muse posts are added. If you'd like to be on that separate list, drop me an e-mail or contact me using this link and I'll add you to this new list.

Although some posts will be adapted from my book, The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write, many will offer new or updated information. So don't ignore this new source of inspiration just because you have the book.

But if you do have the book, please check out the new Voice of Your Muse Google Group I've set up to help you connect with others working with The Voice of the Muse book or CD.

Regardless, please visit the new blog and add your comments!

Another lovely and timely blog. Thank you. It does only take a moment for miracles, if we're ready, open. It's the ready part that is so hard for me, poised at the starter's block waiting for "go." It's not giving up or giving in; the cultivation of acceptance, the trust and faith you talked about in an earlier blog. I suppose this is our reminder of our humanness and humanity, the faith we find, hold, share, and the sloughs of despond where we find ourselves when we lose sight and hold.

Dear Suze et al,

The URL for the new blog is http://thevoiceofyourmuse.com. It's not the same as the book's name, which is The Voice of the Muse.

Alternatively, you can go to http://markdavidmuse.blogspot.com.
