It’s Wednesday and at Coffee n’ Notes it’s time for ‘Behind The Writer’ 🙂 I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday and a great week.
Before I will start with the post, I just wanted to say that I am sorry I was away for a bit and haven’t answered your lovely comments and visited your wonderful blogs. Too much is going on right now (JunoWriMo, Other writing, Family, Home…).
so I am a bit overwhelmed, but I hope things will get easier – soon 🙂
So what motivates me to continue writing, if I get stuck?
Well… I usually get a bit stuck in the middle of the story (I write very fast until then, so I think I get a bit burned out) and then I need to be more motivated to write. Mostly because I start to procrastinate a lot (a lot!) and I start doing everything on my lists, but writing 😉
So what motivates me here are some little mind trick, lol, crazy I know (but hey, that works). I say to myself that if I write for a minute or two – on the clock, about a single word I choose or use this site, then… I am done!
In most cases that one word makes a spark and I start writing for a few more minutes about that word and then I have enough push and motivation and I continue on working on my story (usually for a few hours).
Now if that didn’t help I set my alarm for an hour later and until then I do what I need or want. When the alarm starts ringing, I start again 😀 Or do some free writing to get my mind clearer.
Day like these, when I have too much on my plate and writing is just a job, I do little tricks like these and it brings back the excitement and motivation for the writing and my story ❤
Well that is all for this Wednesday, I managed to keep this short-ish, yey.
Thank you so much for reading ❤
