Herding Muses is the writing-related section of the blog. I’ve got several semi-regular features that I’ve been alternating through.
- Muse Bait and Feeding the Muses are free to use ideas, prompts, brain-fodder, and resources for writers. Most are mine right now, but I’m looking to branch out with guest posts, and links to other helpful resources.
- Muse Herding Gear is a subcategory I’m putting together for product reviews, reviews of writing related books, and strategies for keeping your Muses healthy and happy.
- Advice for the Muse Herding Newbie is a series of advice articles I wish someone had given me 20-odd years ago when I started writing.
- Are You Stuck? is an ongoing series of tips for getting your writing projects unstuck.
You’ll also find tips for organizing your writing, case studies on character development, worldbuilding, and several other topics.
Herding Muses now has several subsections of content for writers and other creative types.

I want to start a section of the blog for writing tips and resources. “Herding Muses” was the best metaphor I could come up with for fiction writing. I liked it, and the featured image here reminds me of my collection of stories and muses so I broke the “Rose/Garden” motif to go with it.
