I want to get the book done but just don’t feel like it. Sound familiar? Or are you at the point where you can’t stand the characters and wish magically the book would write itself already.
Here are 5 tips for when you don’t feel like it
🖊 Show up! Until you do nothing happens.
🖊 Reward yourself. I am an avid reader and a one click addict. So I have stacks of books but I set them down as rewards for getting some writing done. Then reward myself with a book and a mug of tea. #bliss
🖊 Change the scene. I write anywhere in my house… Kitchen waiting on the water to boil for my Poundo( A Nigerian delicacy) or Indomie(Noodles)…Dinning, couch, bed anywhere.
🖊 Set a hard word count goal. I only do this when I’m really not feeling it. That way I’m forced to do what needs to be done.
🖊 Dress up. Staying in your pjs May be cool and all but gets old. Take off the bonnet, fix your hair and hit those keys.
How do you get motivated to write even when you don’t feel like it?
