For me personally when I run out of motivation I just take a step back and focus on the other things in life and wait for the time to get the motivation back. It can take a week or month but I want to create the best content I can for the readers. Another way to get the motivation back is to do some of the following:
Do something your characters would do, act like them for a day
Classic: Listen to music, watch movies, read books, etc.
Make a mood board for your story or characters
Write a different scene in the story or something totally different and out of the plot for your characters
Anything to make you feel relaxed or calm
Talking to someone about your characters or plot
Writing a letter between two characters & add some cool writing styles!
I also have a post of my own I created about the same thing & got some great advice back from some people! Here’s the post if you’d like to check it out!
If you ever want to talk about ideas for your stories or anything else you can always PM me to chat anytime! Hopefully these all help you overcome your burnout/loss of motivation!
Moved to Episode Fan Community since this is about writing Episode stories. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about creating topics, and feel free to PM me if you’ve got questions.
What @Episode_amber3 mentioned are very good advices. But I’d like to mention something else: Take a break!! We authors are just as human as the readers. Just saying, because some readers forget that authors are no robots writing non-stop for 24 hours at a day. I have also times I lack of motivation to write… Take a break do something (totally) else (like walking the dog, cat or your baby brother. ) and after a few days the inspiration will come back. Just believe in yourself and don’t force yourself to write. You are here to write, because you like to write. If you get some negative fan mails, don’t let it get you.
For the rest don’t stop writing and don’t hesitate to ask me for more help by PM at this forum or DM on instagram (if you have instagram → @angelwings_1983 ).
