How do you know if you’re creative?

Are you breathing?

Then the answer is “yes.”

Inspiration is a beautiful word when you break it down. It means “to breathe in” from the Latin, in-spir-a-tus.

This Invitations to the Muse Journaling Tool invites you to explore all the ways you are inspired and creative, beginning, as Brenda Ueland tells us, to “Remember how wonderful you are, what a miracle,” then offering many opportunities to explore and express your creativity through

  • learning how others invoke their muse and how you can create your personal invocations
  • exploring ideas for cross-fertilizations with other types of creativity and re-filling your creative well
  • responding to prompts for journaling by writing through the senses
  • mapping your creative expressions
  • writing your intentions for journaling or other creative writing

This Tool also offers a recommend list of books about creativity and writing and lists a few additional prompts for free-writing about your creative expressions and explorations.

Invitations to the Muse is a Journaling Tool to use on your own or invite journaling friends to write with you. We always say the Muse likes to work a crowd.
