Nanowrimo kick-off internal editor and muse figurines

As the 2011 “municipal liaison” (read: event coordinator) for National Novel Writing Month ( in Kenya, I organized a writers’ kick-off party at the iHUB ( in Nairobi.

One of our activities was for writers to sculpt their “internal editors”:

My internal editor is the creature with bug eyes, claws for hands, and a big mouth with a red forked tongue shooting out of it.

Next we molded our muses out of clay:

My muse is a tall beautiful big breasted maiden, since the main character in my 2011 novel is a 17 male runaway who has a definite love interest.

Another one of the writers thinks of the sea as her muse.

Two other writers considered a mushroom or a blue person with a thinking cap as their muses.

Lastly, someone’s dragon-like creature as a muse.
