At first, finding the motivation to write constantly was hard. I found myself to be too busy, too tired, or I just didn’t feel like it. I didn’t know what to do to get that push that I needed.
Now its gotten easier, I have been posting weekly, reading other posts I find interesting and writing on wattpad as well as writing a story that I haven’t posted anywhere yet. I think I’m doing better, but I want to do even more now than I have before. Its funny how posting once weekly has snowballed into posting about four times a week.
I’ve found the getting up every day at 7 to write first thing in the morning before I go to work has really helped. Before I leave I have to write at least something whether it be on this blog, my other blog, wattpad or the story I’m working on. I think I need to be more consistent with reading too. I try to read before I go to bed, but sometimes that doesn’t always happen because sometimes I’m hanging out with other people in the evenings.
Constancy has really helped give me the push that I need every day. Even on my days off I get up at 7 to write. However, I do think I need to be more constant in my reading too, to help my writing get better. I’m not sure how I’m going to do that yet, but I hope I will find a way.
What motivates you? Does constancy play a part in it?
