Cloudy Day Art #48 – Discussion on Finding the Muse with Harry Lafnear and Thom Ingram

We have an extra-special show for you this week. I had a great “round-table” discussion with Harry Lafnear of the Everyday Muse podcast and Thom Ingram of the Poetguru Podcast.

We talked about their similar but different poem-a-day projects and the lessons they have learned from them. We speak about creativity and finding your “muse”. We discuss whether the muse even exists or can anyone become a good writer if they are disciplined enough.

We invite you into the discussion. Tell us what you think.

Hear Harry Lafnear’s recite his poem “The Medicine Chest of Dorian Gray” on the Slam Idol podcast!

  1. Hey Will!

    I just had an opportunity to listen to your latest podcast. Great work! I really enjoyed the roundtable discussion format. I wanted to let you know what’s MUSE with me.

    I’ve been out of commission recently with a bunch of new stuff going on in my life including having 4 teeth pulled, friends and family visits, and trying to focusing more on my career path. I’m also flying to Vancouver, British Columbia and then to Seattle, Washington tommorrow and returning late next week.

    I still want to continue conducting interviews for Cloudy Day Art and plan to do so after I get back from my trip and get back into my routine. Until then take care and stay in touch.

  2. Thanks, Gerry!

    I really enjoyed that format as well and will definitely include more content like that in upcoming shows.

    I look forward to hearing from you again and hearing more content from you.

    Enjoy your time away!

  3. Hey Will, loved the show and I’ve subscribed to two more podcasts. One pointer that I can make about poets writing a poem a day and not knowing where to start or just being motivated is the same advice Robert Bly had on “The Language of Life with Bill Moyers”. When writing a poem a day, take the first thought, first thing that grabs your attention and write about it. It can be great fun. Heck, I’ve even written poems about my dreams because they still were with me as I awoke.
