This is a topic that I’ve given a lot of thought. How do I stay motivated to write? For me, that’s an easy question, I’m not always motivated to write but I have to. When I realized that I had to write in order to finish writing a novel (who could’ve guessed it) I realized I couldn’t wait until I was motivated.
I try to write everyday, at least a paragraph. Writing is time consuming and some days you’re too busy or you don’t feel well, but writing at least a paragraph was better than not writing at all. I can’t stay focused on one writing project for too long so I try to write my novel for two days, and then give myself a break by only writing a blog or a poem. This helped me stay motivated, because I wasn’t writing the same thing constantly. I can’t tell you how to stay motivated because what I do may not work for you, but writing anything is better than writing nothing.
