How to Get Motivated to Write
Updated: Oct 23, 2021
Hello everyone, have you ever been low on inspiration and drive to write? Well, this is the blog post for you. In our overstimulating, ever-busy-body society, it’s no wonder writers and people alike get burned out. So, for those days, you don’t have the drive to write. Here are some tips to get you through it.
The first piece of advice I have for you is to have small obtainable goals. It doesn’t have to be a page; it doesn’t even have to be 3,000 words. It can be as simple as 1,000 words, or a simple brainstorm for your next writing session. Whatever it is, made sure it is obtainable and actionable. Anything counts, and a day spent writing one sentence is better than a day not.
My next piece of advice is to watch a movie or listen to a score that means something to you and/or your piece. This may be all the spark you need to keep going. I know it is for me when I am feeling drained.
Finally, remind yourself of why you are writing. Is it to become famous? Is it to make a statement? Is it for someone you love? Whatever it may be, remind yourself of it in your pursuit to keep going.
I hope my tips help you keep going and just know support is at your disposal via this community.
Till next time.
