The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write
Mark David Gerson
LightLines Media (2008)
ISBN: 9780979547553

Mark David Gerson, author of the award-winning visionary novel, The Moon Quest, shares his secrets as a creative writer in this phenomenal guide to overcoming writer’s block and unleashing your creative potential. Gerson offers numerous helpful tips, processes and visualizations to get the right words down on the page and to make those words flow without struggle.

As a creative writing instructor for over fifteen years, Gerson shares the writing techniques he teaches in his popular seminars, and which have made him an award-winning writer. He includes numerous visualizations (also available on a CD) to encourage people to unlock their creative potential. Gerson tells us not to worry about what we are writing but simply to keep writing even if all we can write is “I don’t know what to write” over and over. The important thing is to keep the pen moving.

While some of Gerson’s techniques are commonplace in creative writing courses, what he excels at is encouraging the writer to believe the book desired can be written. In fact, Gerson believes that book already exists and the writer simply needs to learn how to relax and stop the resistance that is preventing those words from getting onto the page. Gerson analyzes in depth the real reason for writer’s block, how to overcome it, and how to channel that resistance into energy that leads to words on paper. The book’s numerous short essays remind us to listen to our voices, to acknowledge that the story and characters know where they want to go, and that there are no perfect rules but that you can write however you want and it will be perfect for you.

“The Voice of the Muse” is available as an autographed copy from Gerson’s website, The website also features more information on his writing courses and individual writing coach sessions.

Read “The Voice of the Muse” and you too will be ready to answer the call to write!
