Writing: From Royal Pain to Royalty

Taking writing from royal pain to royalty takes practice and patience.  It is not for the squeamish.  Even if we can perform tricks for our muse to get a little cooperation, one royal piece of work does not entitle us to the crown.  There are places that you can look for ideas from creatives and that is good, but you may have to find your own road to the palace unless you’re writing…
