This Book Provides Writers a Solid Shot of Inspiration

  • Apr 12, 2009
Writers will often talk about waiting for the voice of the muse but I had never read a book on this topic until this book. Whether you are stalled trying to figure out which direction to take your writing or stuck in daily deadlines, you can gain much needed inspiration and encouragement from this book.

In some of the opening pages, Gerson writes, "Whether or not you know what you want to write, whether or not you seek to be published, begin by opening to the notion that whatever has drawn you to your page and these pages starts with you, with the call and voice of your Muse. Ignore all external direction and all internal criticism. Pay no heed to what the "market will bear." What the market seeks today may not be what it will seek when your book or story is complete. What your heart calls you to write in this moment may be just what others' heart will cry out to read in two months, six months or a year." (page 19)

Simple yet profound encouragement is laced throughout this book. Every writer can gain a solid dose of insight from THE VOICE OF THE MUSE. I recommend it.
