This week's guest poster is the lovely Tavera Del Toro, author of Revenge Chair. Here Tavera discusses the creative process. Enjoy!
I've talked about ideas before - you may remember my post How to grow great ideas from the Muses. However, I want to discuss the invasion of story ideas. I don't know about you, but my Muse doesn't wait until I've finished a novel before she bashes me over the head with another idea...or five. So how do you manage to stay honest to your current story while other ideas are tantalisingly waving at you from the side-lines?
This week's guest poster is author Pearl R Meaker of the Emory Crawford Mysteries who discusses where writers get their ideas
Today I'm going to talk about ideas. The Songs of the Muses. These are the life force of the writer. Without them, we (figuratively) starve. When you get an idea you need to grab onto it. So the question becomes, where do ideas come from?
