Hello! I was just wondering how do you guys stay motivated to write? I published my story about 11 days ago. All though I have gotten some reads I feel like people don’t enjoy it. I’ll read stories with millions of reads and feel like mine is not nearly as good, but I am not envious as I know that they deserve all the reads they get, and the are talented and hardworking. I loveee writing and one of the things that help me continue are the rising actions that I have planned for the story. I look forward to writing them. So how do you stay motivated and how do you overcome writers block? Also if anyone has published a story and is having a hard time getting reads please message me and ask if I can read it, I won’t say no but it might take a while as I have to read 3 other stories!
I’ll just need a change of sencery and go outside…
I like being alone (i live with 5 boys) and I’ll just go to my pool and lay on my diving board and then ideas will just come to me…
Reading others stories…
I love reading other authors stories some times it helps me improve on mine
Listening to Music
Listening to music on the genre of ur story also helps me think…
Just knowing that I published a story
That just always brings up mood up and makes me wanna write more!
Hope this helps
This helps a lot, thank you!
I’d say to just take breaks and look for inspiration around you in your daily life. Take your time!
Try some music fitting in with the theme of your story
It can spark some new ideas and soothe your brain in that writing gear
Well, if I love my characters like my children; I never get writers block.
I know every nook and cranny of their personality. So I know what they’ll do if they’re put in a particular situation.
I often get writers block if I don’t know my characters well enough.
So my advise is to spend time with your characters, imagine them being there with you and talk to them. What would they do if they got detention for some reason? Their favourite food? If they prefer donuts (they better do)?
Ahem. You get my point.
Taking breaks and clearing your mind helps.
idk if my opinion matters in this when I haven’t gotten many views in the story I published almost a years ago about I just stay motivated by remembering that writing makes me happy. As well as music, when u listen to a lot of music many thoughts that you might be thinking of begins to fade away.
Everyone’s opinion matters!
