How to Summon Your Muse

The leaves are turning red, zombies are roaming my neighbor's yard, and I'm wearing my gray writing sweater every day, it must be...PiBoIdMo time!

This is my third Picture Book Idea Month, and I am primed and ready to fill another notebook with ideas inspired by fabulous daily guest posts. But I'm not sure my muse is ready. She's having a really hard time adjusting to back to school. Just because I have a tiny bit of free time, doesn't mean she's no longer needed.

Tara Lazar (whose sixth picture book just sold, btw!) posed a question about how a writer can summon their muse. I always revert back to my corporate training in flowcharting when it comes to questions like this.


Easy Peasy!
Enjoy spending the month of November with your muse, and the fresh smell of unicorn rainbow gas. 

UPDATE: I won a guest posting spot on PrePiBoIdMo from Tara. SQUEE! Read the final post here along with Summoning Your Muse with amazing illustration by Julie Rowan Zoch.

  1. Just pinned your bizarrely accurate infographic to my writers' board on Pinterest. I'd say you're ready for November!

    1. LOL! I think it is sadly applicable to many writers. Goodness knows we all probably have a dust bunny story.

    1. I think people keep thinking it's funny, but it's seriously exactly what I do everytime I sit down to write :D

  4. I love a good flowchart, Lauri! Especially one with farting unicorns. Oh and good tip about the laundry. Seriously, I step one foot next to the washing machine and suddenly I start folding clothes and matching socks, and poof the day is gone.

    1. Laundry is just so never ending! I really think we should all have nudey Wednesday or something so we can experience having all the laundry down for a few hours.
