Behind & Beyond My Books: How To Pack For Your MUSE THERAPY Adventure
MUSE THERAPY Launch-Month Mayhem (Day 13):
It's almost time to get started on your MUSE THERAPY Adventure - in just two days to be exact!!!
So how should you pack for the trip along your Yellow Brick Road to Publishing Oz? Or, in other words, what do you need for your MUSE THERAPY journey?
Yesterday, I told you to pick your comfy-est chair. Plus, I showed you the exact spot where I get comfy with my muses to let their magic begin...
So grab your comfy couch or your favorite chair and put-up your feet. It's just about time to give your muses a big-time boost of productive power.
Note: I'm serious about putting up your feet. Get comfortable. Whatever form that takes for you.
Now besides a comfy couch or chair, you'll need the following tools on your MUSE THERAPY journey:
1. A Journal or Notebook – one that really makes your muses wake-up and take notice. Something so in line with their tastes that they’re dying to crack open the cover and get to work. For example, I love anything hot pink and chocolate brown in color, and the more sparkles on it the better. So I snatch up those puppies wherever and whenever I find ‘em. And don’t forget the equally fabulous pen or pencil your muses also can’t resist. Oh, and if you’re a techno person, using your PC, laptop or notebook, or smart phone is perfectly fine too. MUSE THERAPY is all about whatever works for you and your muses. Who cares what anyone else thinks of your methods and tools?
Here's a peek at my current go-to MUSE THERAPY sparkly pens and skull-fancy plus Wonder Woman too notebooks...
2. A Reward Box - to fill with slips of paper containing treats for yourself as rewards for reining in your creative divas and upping your page counts. For example, I might jot down that I’d like a mani or pedi or mani/pedi combo – depending on my budget. Or how about an evening at the movie theatre instead of at home with my DVR? And I’d love to have another massage. So I write down all these treats and toss them into my Reward Box. Every so often, after I’ve met another production goal, I pick a slip from the box and treat myself and my muses to something I know ahead of time I’ll beyond love. And as in the above MUSE THERAPY tool, of course it’s okay to put all your rewards on some techno-terrific spreadsheet too!
Okay...so currently my Reward Box is a Sucker Bowl.
And no, not because I'm celebrating that another sucker is born every second. Nice try. Anyhoo...I'm in this Sucker-Mode in which every accomplishment earns me a yummy-yum-yum gourmet lollipop! And I can do this because I'm the boss over my Creative Kingdom so what I say goes. Today's treat is Key Lime Pie-flavored!!!
So what will your rewards be in your Creative Muse Who-villes?
To pamper your muses, you must first pamper yourself.
Whether with Gourmet Lollipops or Mani/Pedi Combo's or whatever else makes you crank out pages with gusto.
In MUSE THERAPY, it’s all about you, Baby! Give yourself permission to be queen of your creative domain and treat yourself accordingly.
Your muses will be glad you did and so will you.
