Gennita Low's Writing Muse needs a voice now and then to remind Gennita about her love for writing and her battle with words. It's a dark world illuminated by the glow of creation. The Muse is that light. Sometimes she sleeps. Sometimes she's ferocious. Often she patiently waits. Pst. Never ignore her. Feed the Muse or else.

It's been a while. I've been skipping out on you, I know, but Muse needs replenishing too. Your personal bad news about your book affected my happy thoughts so much, I had to go dip in the Well of Rejuvenation and give you a mental break.

Are you ready to get back on your feet?

Need I remind you about that speech given by Connie Brockway at RWA just before you received that horrendous bad news? Okay, let's go look at the steps of the Superhero Writer, as pointed out by the excellent Ms. Brockway.

1) Ordinary world

2) Call to adventure

3) Refusal of the Call

4) Crossing the threshold

5) tests, allies, enemies

6) Approach to Innermost Cave

7) The Supreme Ordeal

8) Reward

9) The Road Back

10) Resurrection

Sometimes, my friend, the journey starts over and over again because resurrection is all about that. Which part of this Superhero Writer journey are you on now? I think you've gone into Number 6 and are refusing to come out. Come on, you need sunlight to grow.

What about you others out there? Which part of the journey are you on?
