Hey! What keeps you guys motivated to keep writing? Sometimes, I find that in the middle of writing I get bored, demotivated and start disliking what I’ve done for my story, and sometimes even delete/remove all the codes/script or whatever I did.
So, some advice and ideas would be appreciated!
Try to remember why you started writing in the first place. I also like to review my favorite parts of the script and lastly, take a break if you don’t feel like you want to code. If you force yourself, eventually you’ll snap and never code again.
Oh! That’s good advice!
But I feel like I take long breaks already ^^’
Mostly when I get demotivated I either try to figure out what I could do better or just leave for a week, however, sometimes coming back leaves me more blank and unmotivated. ^^’
Hmm… you could try getting encouragement by showing someone else your script for a proofread. It might help to hear someone else’s opinion. If all else fails, try fixing up your station. Get some snacks and then on your favorite show in the background.
Showing someone else my script may be a good idea but I’d get too anxious, it even took everything inside me to post this XD
Putting a favorite show may be a distraction but I do like the sound of snacks XD
Thank you so much! I appreciate you taking the time to answer!
What helps me write is Music and art, sometimes if I don’t have inspiration than I would usually paint something while listening to Sub Urban’s Music or just stare into the unknown I mean my backyard but what works for me most is by playing hockey so I would usually say that you should do something that You love to do
Also, IS THAT FLORA FROM WINGS CLUB?
I haven’t even thought about that show in a long time XD
I tell you,I’m writing my first story and when I was writing alone I found it difficult and I wasn’t so motivated,I’ve found 2 girls with whom I’m writing with,the base plot is the same bu we’re sharing ideas etc and it makes me more motivated,maybe you can try to work with someone else
Hmm… I do like reading but I’d get immersed in it, I can’t paint or draw so that can’t be an option.
I play badminton, I guess doing something physical would help my brain take a bit of a break and then get back to it sooner! Thanks!
Working with someone would be great! The problem however is my fear of judgement ^^’
Plus the plotline I’m working on is historical fantasy which a lot of people don’t really like and possibly might not understand what I’m trying to do ^^’
Glad I could help or you can just lay on the grass outside,put on your headphones/airpods/earphones, play your favourite songs and stare at the clouds but you should always have your pen and notebook just in case you get some inspiration
Maybe you can ask,someone could be happy to work on this story with you!
I think it could make you more motivated cuz,when I started and also now I have lots of difficculties with codes I think that if you find someone to work with,someone with whom share ideas and make changement with could make u write a better story!
Try and ask girl, I’m sure someone is intrested in your story,in your plot and to work with you!
I love historical fantasy but there might be a author who also likes historical fantasy and also is lacking inspiration they might be out there just keep your hopes up maybe the universe will surprise you
I’ll be sure to do that! But would laying in bed do the same? I don’t think laying in the grass is an option for my allergies XD
Awwh, well, I hope it does!
Yes it can also work but with out being disturbed by siblings/family members because you will loose a your inspiration
I’m sure you’ll make a great story!
Let me know when you publish it!
