When your writing muse has taken a short leave of absence or a day off, you feel as if all the things you wanted to say upon awaking that morning has also disappeared. And you felt as if you had so much you wanted to share with the world, but as you sit behind your desk and look at the MS Word screen before you, you feel as though your mind has gone blank of all ideas.
Then as you continue to sit there before your laptop or desktop computer, you wonder what happened. Was it that conversation with a friend on the telephone that distracted you from keeping that one idea or opinion you wanted to share with the world? Or was it that argument you had with a romantic partner?
And the longer you sit there without a word or sentence on the screen before you, you sigh in frustration. So you try to retrace the steps in your mind, the steps you took after the brilliant thought you had in your mind decided to take leave of you.
So you get up, take a walk outside and some fresh air and before you know it, you are racing back to your computer, for that idea you thought would never return, has made its way back to you. So you see, some things are not as out of reach as you think they are, sometimes all of us need to step back and take a look around or get a dash of nature in us for that muse to show itself once again.
For now the page is full and you look at it with pride, all because you were determined enough to retrace your steps and bring back that idea you thought was lost. Sometimes you become your own muse.
