Completely unmotivated

What do you do when you no longer want to write or feel like you can’t anymore?

I’m sort of having this same problem, but mine is most likely due to the fact Episode aren’t helping me access my account. I guess you could try planning more or taking a break. Go do something else you enjoy, relax and little and get back to it

The only time that I don’t write is when I’m reading. It helps me realize what I love the most, and it can also gives me some inspiration at the same time. This differs per person, but it works for me.

I give myself a break! I find that when I force myself to write the more unmotivated I feel. Take a step back and don’t think about it. Do things you like, you’ll probably find ideas flowing back to you and when you come back to it you’ll be excited to write again!!! Sometimes it also helps me when I journal as opposed to writing stories? It’s simple exercises that keep me writing but it feels different, it usually takes my mind off of my story long enough to feel refreshed!

I take a break, and maybe start reading novels, or even other Episode stories. Just to relax my mind because I know writing a story can be hard work, and after some time my brain needs the rest.

I literally take hella breaks when I can’t write honestly​:joy: especially because I’m in college, so it’s hard balancing being a student and a part time episode author at the same time. So take breaks if you need to. You got this fam​:v:t5::clap:t5:

sometimes I take a break from writing altogether and eventually ideas will come to you…

idk, i feel like writing (in any case, even school essays) is easier when you do something to spice it up. it’s hard to push something to it’s fullest potential when you aren’t 100% passionate about it. I enjoy writing something that’ll make MYSELF shocked each sentence. but taking a break until you are in a good spot and feel ready is always the go to.

Usually I do read for reads with the community. It’s kinda random, but I still feel like I’m doing something related to it ya know?
