Understanding The Muse

One would assume as authors we are free spirits. We follow the paths less traveled, answering to no one as we weave our fanciful tales to please our readers. It’s an easy job, right, to be your own boss?
Alas, that’s not the case. You see, we are merely slaves to a little voice in our head. Some misunderstanding folk would say this voice is the edge of mental illness, but we authors call it the Muse. A wonderful partner at times to guide us in the direction of amazing prose that will astound readers, and during these times how we love her! Unfortunately she can be just as spiteful if we’ve not fed her need for creative inspiration, remaining silent as we plead for just one line to guide us in the proper direction. Or worse, send us into dead end after dead end.
We struggle with our Muse, finding ways to feed her appetite for literary possibilities as we live our mundane day to day lives. When her temper rises and we find ourselves staring at a blank page on the computer screen we wonder where we went wrong, what has displeased her? When our fingers fly over the keyboard, we offer our gratitude and revel in her genius. It’s never the author; it’s the Muse that writes the story.
Those outside the circle wouldn’t understand, maybe even scoff at the idea of the Muse. But she is truly a living breathing entity within us, and without her we are without imagination. My fellow authors take a moment to thank that wayward voice that you have so little control over, for she is the talent within you.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
