It’s Wednesday and here at Coffee n’ Notes it’s time for my new series of “Behind The Writer”. This will be a short post, almost like a mini post as I like to call it. If you missed my first post or just don’t remember, you can find it here, where I wrote an introduction to this series.
This week I am going to talk about what motivates me to write on those slow or busy days, so lets start!
One of my motivation to write a story is when the story creeps into my dreams as sweet dreams and even as nightmares if I don’t put them in writing.
The story wedges itself into every aspect of my thoughts. The characters start screaming and talking, the plot racing in my mind.
Watching the same movie, over and over again, lol (24/7 everyday). The only way to make this cycle stop is to write it all down. Now I know it’s sounds crazy, but believe me that when you write the story down and your mind finally clears, it’s a wow moment!
Imagine that you could hear thoughts, everyone’s thoughts, none stop. I woke up one morning (and sometimes in the middle of night drenched in sweat, lol) and I could hear everything. I could hear my character’s thoughts, conversations and even their hopes, dreams and their struggles, until I couldn’t take it anymore.
The only way to stop this madness, of running thoughts of all sort of characters that happened to invade my brain, is to write it down. Now I know it sounds crazier than before, but that’s how my crazy mind works, lol.
This is a great motivation to write a story, a blog post (yep) or even a poem.
I write or I will go insane, lol.
Don’t forget to share your thoughts on what motivates you to do something?
Thank you so much for reading ❤
