Motivation In Writing

If you are lacking the motivation to write, do not worry. In fact, there are many ways to improve and re-construct your motivation. The methods of doing so are perfectly natural. How many times have you sat down in front of your computer with the intension of writing, and completely avoided doing so? Perhaps the procrastination is not intentional. 

1. Distractions, i.e, the number one supporter of procrastination. Turn off the music so you can focus. Close your browser, and put down your phone. Even unplug your internet if that is what it takes. 

2. The environment really won’t have much to do with your writing. If you are the type of person that can’t work in a messy room, that’s fine. Clean up your area so you aren’t distracted. If you don’t have a view of beautiful rolling hills and serene forests, or perhaps a dazzling array of city lights, twinkling in the back round, that doesn’t matter. Sometimes the best of books are written in a stuffy jail cell. Even writing in a public room is perfectly fine, as long as you have the will. That’s the thing about writing in the presence of many other people: you can’t get in your own little world if you’re by yourself. 

3. Don’t give up. Get a cup of tea and force yourself to write, even if you don’t feel like it. You can’t get anywhere without trying. Like the famous saying goes, where there’s a will where there’s a way.
