Weekend Writing Tip: One word written is one word closer to finished.
I think most if not all of us have been in the place where we WANT to write. Our intentions are good when we sit down, but three hours later, we’ve watched a whole playlist on YouTube or added a hundred new pins on Pinterest or—you get the point.
You’re tired, inspiration is dwindling—still there enough that you want to write something, but you also want to relax—so what now?
Whether it’s literally one word, an idea for a scene, a scrap of dialogue, or a full chapter—just write.
Rome didn’t get mapped out in a day (or something like that) and unless you’re way faster and more impressive than me, your book won’t be written in 24 hours, either.
Take it one word, one day at a time. Write when you don’t want to, write when you do, the point is that the ups and down of this writing thing is what makes us writers. All of it. So enjoy the process, because it only happens this way for these characters and this story once.
What do you when you’re trying to get motivated/inspired to write?
