Romance the muse? What does that mean? Excellent question; it means playing an emotionally butt naked game of twister with your creative self. It means spending quiet, quality time with your muse; don’t ignore him/her or it, make the time, and then take your time. Muses hate being ignored. They take it very personally, and they take it very badly. To avoid that cold cement wall your muse will build to block your writing flow, pursue intimacy, practice seduction, and make your muse feel special. So go ahead, play some soft music, light a scented candle—get yourself and your muse in the mood. Then do it. So get to it!
