If you wait for your muse to do the work, she may never show up. Better to adopt the "bicfok" attitude: butt in chair, fingers on keyboard.
Writing is a wonderful enterprise, but it can also be horrendously difficult. We sit there and stare at the blank screen or blank page, knowing we have to get the work done, and yet... Sometimes if you just start writing nonsense, ideas will come to you. Or get a writing buddy to kick you when you need it most.
Which, unfortunately, is most of the time.
