Jane Yolen on Writing

This is a lovely collection of thoughts about writing.

I was particularly charmed by the idea of the muse being out in the woods when the writer is at the keyboard.  And then I thought ... if the muse isn't in your office, maybe you shouldn't be either.  Where is your muse -- in the woods, in a museum, in a bookstore?  Go find her.  There you'll find the thread of the story you had lost.
