“Every writer I know has trouble writing.” Joseph Heller
Today’s #MondayMotivation post come courtesy of the Starbucks Trenta Iced Coffee that I am only a quarter of the way through drinking. With the way my hands are shaking, I’m assuming I’m going to regret this when I finish.
It’s going to be fine.
But anyway, back to the motivation.
If you think that you’ve been struggling to write this year, I promise you’re not alone. Personally, this year has been challenging on so many levels, and it’s really made the act of writing difficult. I can think about what I want to include in #GroundhogOne until the cows come home (is that an accurate metaphor? I don’t know. I grew up in Beverly Hills, there are neither weather nor farms in that part of California), but when it comes to actually trying to write the scenes I imagine in my head? Well, a Word Document has never been so intimidating.
At the same time, you can’t let that stop you, and I’m not about to let that stop me. If writing were easy, everyone would be a writer. You have to write even when you don’t want to, even when you’re struggling to find the words. It’s only when you start searching for the words that you figure out how to get the scene out of your head and on paper.
Sometimes, people need a plan to get back into the swing of things, and I’ve decided that I’m not about to let 2017 screw me over any more than it already has. Want to know more about what I’m planning to get back into the swing of writing and end this shit-show of a year on a high note? Sign up for the #MondayMotivation Newsletter HERE.
