Writer's Block: What is your muse?

If you're trying to create something, like a story, a composition, or a design, etc., do you find yourself imagining how others will react to it? Does that impede or enhance the creative process?


Thinking about how others will react to my fiction is the worst thing I can do to myself when writing. I completely shut down the creative process on my novel because I stopped writing from my gut and started thinking too much about appealing to a hypothetical future audience.

Getting input from friends didn't help either. At first it was fun engaging my friends in the story, seeing their enthusiasm about it, enjoying their ideas -- but over time I found myself struggling with one or two of them about their interpretations of certain characters.
