Avoid Negative Motivators
This is a short post but it is a vital one.
It is essential that you do not focus on the crap in your life when writing.
While there are many motivations for writing, there are many negative motivators, things that work against your writing. Looking at the stack of bills that you need to pay with your writing will not inspire you. Dwelling on the latest rejection letters will not get the words flowing. Even unaddressed issues such as a fight with your best friend or a personal decision you’ve been putting off can hinder your writing spirit. Do your best to get rid of negative motivators so the words can flow freely.
