I am in process of reawakening the Muse. 6.5 years of academic writing has caused a stifle. I don't regret getting my degrees at all. I believe I have grown as an individual and as a writer. Now I just have to focus and dedicate my time.
The key to getting past the stifle is to push yourself. Not every writer has something brilliant to write everyday. Writing is a practice. Just like photography, there are days and days of okay shots and then one day there is the pay off.
The hope to have an amazing book for others to read and a visually stimulating portfolio for others to enjoy, involve the same dedication.
