Every time I have tried writing without this elusive muse, the result has sounded forced. I still haven't managed to improve these stories to the point where I'm satisfied.
I have a story I want to write. I have the important story events written down and ordered. I can't think of sentences to show these events, and the words won't come. My muse is silent.
What are your thoughts on overcoming writer's block in this situation?
Muses usually give help with what you are saying you have already done. Ideas, outlines, and the like.
The problem as I see it is that you have a dearth of hardworking dwarf and elf craftsmen to fabricate paths, runways, and roads between all these ideas that your productive muses have constructed.
If you don't want to wait for the mood to strike you, then just start doing it, and maybe the mood will come after a while. Then if you like, you can go back and rework what you don't care for.
