Inspiration has been fleeting, lately. I haven’t been able to write anything in almost a month. And then I wondered if my “muse” was not inspiring me. You see, I came across this episode on Charmed. It was all about Muses. Muses, as defined in the “Book of Shadows”, are beings of light whose sole duty is to inspire creativity. They are unseen, even by their charges.
You see, I’ve been experiencing writer’s block since June. I can’t seem to finish writing anything. I was lazy and I felt no passion for writing (or anything else, for that matter).
And then I realized that inspiration is not just something that would suddenly come to you. They’re not like the Muses of Charmed. Inspiration is something you should pursue. Passion is something you should decide to have. You have to open up your mind and your heart for inspiration, and you have to actually search for it.
We can’t just sit around and wait for inspiration to come, we actually have to get it, to run after it.
I used to take inspiration for granted. But now that I’ve stopped writing for more than a month, I realized how important passion and inspiration is. You won’t see me taking it for granted again.
