Exercises for Controlling or Calling Critics (And Muses)

In Part 1 of this post you will find the introduction to why we, as writers, should learn to control and use our inner critics (and muses), as part of our core habits.

Part 2 is an index post, designed as a collection of exercises I and other writers have found useful in controlling and calling on our inner critics or muses as we need them.  As a collection, the post may well be updated in the future, so keep it bookmarked.

Please simply browse through, and mix and match from the exercises included in the little PDF ebook I provide here as a free download.

  1. Hiya. I think the link isn’t working (or hasn’t been activated?) Otherwise, my compooper strikes again. I’ve been having problems with the Savvy Chat Rooms freezing up. Maybe the problem’s spread to other sites. :-/

    1. Thanks for notifying me, Tonette. I’ve just found that WordPress has stripped out all the PDF file links (there are a couple more coming up later in the week), leaving the hyperlink blank. So, it wasn’t you. It was me and my technology. Now I have to go back and redo some.
