10-Minute Muse by Cigdem Kobu

10-Minute Muse

An invigorating writing challenge you can do on your own for developing a steady daily writing practice in just 10 minutes a day.

A 100-Day Challenge for Making Writing a Joyful Daily Habit

The 10-Minute Muse is a 100-day email practice for people who want an easy, enjoyable way to develop a steady writing habit in just 10 minutes a day. It’s for anyone who wants the benefits of a having a consistent writing practice. Whether you want to write every day for pleasure, stress-relief, publishing, or simply to clear your mind, you’ll find the 10-Minute Muse helpful. If you’re breathing, and you can hold a pen, this is for you.

But why only 10 minutes? Is that really enough?

It absolutely is. We all have busy lives. Seriously, who has more than 10 minutes a day for sitting and writing unless writing is their profession? Besides, committing to repeating a micro act daily is the easiest way to develop and sustain a habit you know will change your life. Of course, if you don’t have 10 minutes, you can always start with 5. :-)

“These prompts never fail to start a little tornado, a good tornado, of muses and reflections, forming the words that eventually get put down. I feel increased confidence in my writing.”

DAWN SULLY PILE,
Author, Speaker & Co-Active Coach

How a Simple Daily Writing Habit Will Change Your Life

When you write for as little as 10 minutes every day, interesting things start happening:

  • You unload your mental clutter and find it easier to begin each day with a calmer, clearer mind.
  • You feel less stressed, less scattered and more relaxed and centered.
  • You have an easy daily outlet to notice and express the thoughts and emotions you often didn’t know existed.
  • You develop a deeper connection with yourself and the world that surrounds you.
  • You remember what matters to you the most.
  • You enjoy creative flow and find it easier to focus and maintain your attention during the rest of the day.
  • You get to record and keep your best ideas and valuable ‘a-ha!’ moments.
  • You mine your memory and create honest pieces of writing you can later use as seeds for longer pieces. 
  • You become a better and more prolific writer and a more effective communicator no matter what your age, gender, background, experience, profession, or goals.

“These prompts have taken me so much deeper than I foresaw, much is churning within, and it is timely.”

MARY McCONNELL,
Massage Therapist & Holistic Health Coach

How Does the 10-Minute Muse Work?

After you sign up, you receive  a new, original prompt for freewriting each day for 100 days in a row. Each muse is brief but rich, and it's designed to get your creative, intuitive right brain working. 

Besides, it takes you less than a minute to read it.

You grab a delicious cup of coffee or tea, make yourself cozy in your favorite place, set your timer for 10 minutes, and go!  You keep your pen moving (or your fingers typing) no matter where the daily prompt takes you in your freewriting each day—for just 10 minutes!

It’s doable. It’s fun. It’s simple. And powerful. 

The 10-Minute Muse will help you show up for your writing every day with ease and provide you with the encouragement, support and accountability you need to develop the steady writing habit you’ve always wanted. 

"Writing. Stamina. I love this experience. My writing is becoming a string of stories that paint a much larger picture. The words are flowing and they just won’t stop."

SUE ANN GLEASON,
Marketing Consultant

What Is the Investment Needed?

However, to give more people this helpful tool for developing a daily writing habit, which has countless immediate and long-term benefits—especially during these times when our stress levels are high, I'm offering the 10-Minute Muse for just $39 for the time being. That's less than forty cents a day for one hundred days. Sometime in the future, the fee will go back up again, but if you register now,  you can enjoy discounted, forever access to the material.

Come join us and begin writing with the 10-Minute Muse. Your writing deserves it, and you'll thank yourself once you start experiencing the benefits of daily writing.
