Lacking Motivation?

by Caitlyn
(Lansing, MI, USA)

Often, I find myself feeling lethargic about writing. I want to put it off because I've hit a slow spot and can't seem to get past a part for weeks on end. What I've learned is that by actually forcing myself to sit down for a half hour to scrounge out a few sentences works amazingly. I originally lack the motivation, but as soon as my pencil hits the paper, the words start flying through my head faster than I can write them down. Sure, a lot of it ends up being crappy, but I feel that the effort was worth it, because the motivation came when I started writing, not the other way around. It's all about your mentality.
