Where is my Muse?

The year is flying by faster than you can say half-way-through-twenty-fifteen and with it, deadlines, competition closing dates and a fast approaching NaNoWriMo. With June now past, stories published, feature articles written, the next six months loom ahead carrying some high expectations. The only problem I am facing, is finding my muse.

I remember watching an AMV (Anime Music Video) back back in the day when Naruto was the anime and shouting at Sasuke for leaving with Orichimaru (pre-Shippuden so you can imagine how long ago this was) and the music to this Naruto AMV was Linkin Park’s Numb.

This was one of the reasons I got into anime in the first place, the combination of action sequences, storytelling and great music was inspirational. Even to this day I still enjoy watching AMVs to the numerous anime I have watched over the years and one thing that always comes to mind is: what inspires these writers to write such amazing stories.

Every book I read, every TV series and movie I watch, every game I play, every song I listen to, I can’t help wonder what lies behind the words, the characters – the plot. How can I tap into that within my own creative conscious because right now it seems my creativity is hibernating.

So what do you do when your muse is down and out? When writer’s block has cordoned off your writing path? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
