TFR’s #MondayMotivation – Dec. 18, 2017

A day will come when the story inside you will want to breathe on its own. That’s when you’ll start writing.” – Sarah Noffke

It’s easy to think that if you sit down every day and try to write, that the story you want to write will come, but that doesn’t always happen. Sometimes it’s hit or miss, sometimes what you write just doesn’t work for the piece your working on, or if you’re starting fresh, you might stumble into a bunch of false starts before you can really get going.

But that’s all normal.

You’re not always going to hit it on the first try, but that doesn’t mean the writing you do outside of whatever story you finally land on isn’t ever wasted. You can always take those pieces, be it short scenes or pieces of dialogue and hold them until the time is right. You really never know when you’re working on a scene and you go, “Hey! That scene I wrote that one time a million years ago would be PERFECT here.”

And on the subject of finally getting to the story you REALLY want to write, there’s no one-size-fits-all shortcut. There really never is. You need to figure out what inspires you, and when you’re not writing or working or sleeping or interacting with other humans that you interact with willingly, you should dive into what inspires you and soak up the inspiration. Always try to find something that inspires you, that triggers that thing in your head that makes you want to write something of your own.

It’s never going to be perfect, and it’s not always going to be easy, but it’s still should be a ride that you enjoy. Still, never be afraid to take a break, to step back from your content and write something else, when you’re so inclined. It’ll allow you to return to your primary focus with new energy. Everyone needs a day off sometimes, or even a vacation.

And on that note, I need to get ready for mine!

As always, here’s to a productive week of writing. Don’t forget to sign up for the #MondayMotivation Newsletter by clicking HERE. Taking a bit of a break on this, so the next edition will land in your inbox in January.
