Behind & Beyond My Books: What Is MUSE THERAPY? ( A Goin' Grinch Explanation)
MUSE THERAPY Launch-Month Muse Mayhem (Day 7)
Good Morning, All!!!
Today, here in D. D. Scott-ville, I'm taking you Behind & Beyond My Books with the inside scoop on "what exactly is Muse Therapy" plus "how do you know if and when you need Muse Therapy".
So Buckle-Up! And Let's Go For A Ride With Your Muses thru your very own Creative Kingdom Who-ville...
Yes...as in The Grinch's Who-ville...
So that you and your muses can go from This Grinch...
To This Happy, Productive and Most Beloved Grinch-Guy...
MUSE THERAPY utilizes fun and fabulous tools to inject life into writers’ tired and/or stressed out muses.
Plus, MUSE THERAPY cures muses - like my beloved Grinch - who just aren't feelin' the luuuvvv.
By showing you how to analyze your muses’ funks, rein in your creative divas and ultimately up your page counts, I’ve created a writer’s go-to-manual for “muse disorders”.
I’ll help you dig deep then deeper still into your writer psyche.
Once I show you how to recognize, acknowledge and accept your muses’ afflictions, I’ll teach you tricks, tips and “trips” to treat the word witches of your writing worlds.
My techniques are built upon poking good-natured fun at just how closely our life as writers parallels that of the best mental health maladies.
It's funny how we are our very own Grinches when it comes to loving and pampering our creative divas and dans.
By showing you how to keep your BITCHOK groove on, I’ll keep you laughing out loud and producing a plethora of pages.
Using creative exercises such as Muse Therapy “trips”, collaging as a WIP of your WIP, “Rorschach-inspired” Feng Shui, Bi-Polar and Neurotic Writing, and stimulants like bitchy signs when coffee, chocolate and martinis aren’t enough, I’ll empower you to regain sovereignty over your creative dynasties.
Now then...You may know you need MUSE THERAPY. You may not. Depends on whether or not you’re in denial.
Although you ARE reading this post which could be a significant clue, let me convince you beyond reasonable sanity that you damn well need to get your own copy of MUSE THERAPY when it releases on or around October 15th.
When any of the below sound even remotely familiar, you need MUSE THERAPY:
1. Your muses aren’t ticking. They’re ticked off.
2. Your muses are in a funk saying “up yours” instead of upping your page
3. Even great sex or a new pair of shoes can’t rein in your creative divas.
4. The following sessions sound appealing:
** Unleashing Your Inner Sybil
** Writing Bi-Polar: I Suck vs. I’m a Genius
** What Do You Mean I’m Neurotic? No, I’m Not. Well, Not
Exactly. But Okay...There Are Times When. Like You
Need To Know That. Anyway, I Was Thinking, My Jeep
** Rorschach For Writers: I See Dead Lines
** Stimulants: When Coffee, Chocolate, and Martinis Aren’t Enough
** Goin’ Jungian
** Muses and Misplaced Aggression – Kick Your Own Ass Not Somebody Else’s
** Word Witch Paranoia
** Rockin’ It With Anal Retention
5. Your word witches are on their way to publishing Oz but the
Yellow Brick Road you're bootscootin' on...well...
the damn thing never ends!
6. Everyone says your writing is a waste of time, a “hobby” that will never “pay-off”.
7. You feel the urge to tell everyone in reason six to (I’m thinking of a phrase that starts with a 4-letter-word and ends with a ‘you’, ‘off’ or ‘me’).
So know that you've found your Muse-Grinch motivation in one or more of the reasons above, pick-out your favorite comfy chair, get yourself and your muses some funky, sparkly notebooks and super terrific and blinged-out pens and pencils (or whatever writing instruments you prefer...and if it's techno stuff like your laptop and/or notebook that's fine too...whatever works for you and your muses).
You and your muses' MUSE THERAPY Grinch-ride of a life-time is just about to begin...
Next week, I'll fill you in on all the hotter-than-hot romance genre stars who'll be riding with you on your journey, thanks to the fabulous quotes and anecdotes they've given me about their muse adventures.
And here's a hint...check out my beyond fantastic MUSE THERAPY cover...so yeah, NYT's Bestseller Eloisa James is definitely coming along to Muse Who-ville with us!!!
