Let’s Jump Right Into It.
1. Let’s Face It!!
Writing takes commitment, self-discipline, and desire. Never let other distractions get in the way of your writing, set aside time every day to write. … Remind yourself why you are passionate about writing.
2. Remind yourself the REASON why you’re writing.
3. Write, because you have something to say.
It’s about realizing the value you get from writing. So when you finally understand the “why” behind your writing, writing won’t feel like an obstacle.
4. Commit to a daily goal.
200 words. 1 paragraph. 30 minutes. 1 draft.
Whatever daily goal you set, COMMIT to it. No whining. No postponing. NO excuses.
If you’re going to make excuses, lower the numbers until you can.
5. Let yourself write horribly, just get that 1st draft out!
Look, we all face this problem — tweaking our words as we write, for the sole reason of impressing our readers.
Forget about being perfect. Just push out that 1st draft.
Doesn’t matter if it’s short, messy, missing substance. It’s easier to fix a rough draft than to create something entirely from scratch…
6. Find a quiet, clean, well-lit place to write.
The less distracted you are, the better quality your stories become.
7. Take breaks
If you’re burnt out and have 0 motivation to write, give yourself 20 minutes. An hour. A couple days if that’s what it takes to recuperate.
Your brain will tell you when it’s ready to take on a new task…
Your brain will tell you when it’s ready to take forward.
8. Listen to music that fits your writing…
For me when writing. I love jazz, I light candles, and God speaks to me & my pen..!!
Hope this helps.
