For those who haven’t realised, it’s been a while since I have posted something…
In my Goals for 2018 post I said that this year I would be working on putting quality before quantity, the problem I am having however is that I haven’t really sat down and written enough to work on quality. It’s been almost 2 months since I’ve posted ANYTHING here and it’s been far longer since I’ve submitted anything for ABTM. This wouldn’t be much of a big deal to me if I’d sat down to write and not liked what I produced, it IS a big deal however because I’ve barely sat down to write at all.
I’ve not struggled as much in the last few months when it comes to writing my book, but it’s still a part of my overall problem. My problem is motivation. I get all hyped up, log onto a computer and tell my self “I am going to write something!” and then I don’t. Any motivation I had seems to disappear when it comes time to actually doing something. As I previously mentioned my book isn’t taking to much of the hit from this dry spell, it’s the fact it’s happening at all that bothers me.
Is something wrong with my writing brain?
I made commitments to my self and others to be writing regularly and I haven’t been meeting them. This is not okay. For now I’m just going to tell my self to sit down and try harder even though I’ll likely end up suffering from the same problem, but I am really not sure what else I can do differently at this point. Maybe/hopefully I can gather some motivation from making progress on my book. I guess we’ll find out.
If I post more you’ll know I got over it…
