Hello?? Where's my muse?

My muse has been absent of late. I think she took a vacation with no notice. For the last two weeks or so the absence of Le Muse has left me without my daily creative outlet. I haven't been able to do much writing or editing. I tried reading articles about writers block and how to get motivated to no avail. I started getting snarky with my family, taking naps and watching "Revenge."
Pinterest stepped in to save my sanity. I found recipes to bake (my family loved me!), crafts to make, and picture ideas to retake. Plus I cleaned and organized a few closets (Mom! What did you do with my broken spy glasses I never play with but now I want to because you threw them out??). 
For a week I've had the song "Hello" by Martin Solveig & Dragonette in my head. Seriously. I could not for the life of me get it outta there. I tried listening to different songs on the radio. Turned Jango up. Even had the kids sing songs to me. Nothing helped.
Then BAM! I got a great idea for the book I'm writing! I sat back down in my comfy chair and wrote it. And. kept. writing.
Le Muse was back and saying hello.
"I could stick around and get along with you, hello!"

I'm back in the groove, my friends, and it feels sooo good!

What about you? How are you doing today?

Here's a song to get your brain cells moving:


I picture Le Muse as the girl singing this song.
What does your muse look like??

Whatever you do, Do Not play the video below. This song was stuck in my head for days. I'll post it just in case you're crazy:

Julian Smith cracks me up. I'm glad your muse is back. Now can you send mine over to me?

So glad your muse is back. Maybe you just needed a break? Sounds like it was worth the time off. Now let the words flow!! :)

I solved a problem in my book by writing back stories for all the main characters. It was so great. Glad you found your answer.
