A Multi-leveled Labyrinth Holds The Muse

As we practice the craft of writing, some days it proves a frustration and others a delight. Writing can become like finding one's way through a multi-level labyrinth. Think in terms of the space which is fabled to have held the Minotaur. However, unlike the home of the Minotaur, a writer's labyrinth is not static; it is ever-changing. The lighting within it ebbs, grows and flows as we seek our destination. Each corner holds a new and different treasure. When we solve the puzzle and exit the space, we are eager to move on to the next challenge.
