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. 


Top 9 or 10 Writing Tips for Writing

1. Research. You’ll need to research, find sites and blogs like these. Read up, do the research.

2. Reading Gold. Don’t even try to write a book until you have good experience. So read some books, classics, modern day novels. Recommended; Warriors by Erin Hunter, (Series) Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Shannara (Series) Terry Brooks, Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.RR Tolkien. There are many other good books, but I’ve noticed a lot of colorful and descriptive words is these one’s especially.

3. Get a rough draft, plot. Draft up characters and temporary ideas, brainstorm. Spend at least a few weeks on the draft.

4. Get inspired by reading even more books. Even sit on a chair and just think of a good addicting plot line.

5. Always revise and revise. The most important part. Besides grammatical errors, bad sentence forming and awkward character talk is a common error. Read books, books, and books. It’s the best way to learn good writing patterns, because they wouldn’t have published the book unless they had good writing skills.

7. Make sure your message, point of view, etc, is received. Always make sure you have a good plot and ending, the result of a depressing end in a good book not meant to be depressing is always negative, and losing publicity becomes easier.

8. Look out, readers are even more criticizing then you are to your book, story, article, etc. Even the slightest grammatical error brings down your publicity majorly.

9. Publishing articles promoting your book is a delicate part. Firstly, you want key words so people can find your article, blog, easier. Example: Top 9 or 10 Writing Tips for Writing. Thousands of people a day search for “Top ten writing tips”, but maybe a hundred people a day search “Top 9 writing tips.” You never know, but it’s always better to have better tags to get people to your page.

10. Publishing your book. Where do I publish? This is easily the most tedious part. Publishing your book. Kindle, Nook, Amazon, Barnes & Noble all accept a variety of books, as long as it’s unique. Barnes & Noble complains a lot about receiving requests for the same type of books all the time. Nook will accept pretty much all books, but it’s always safer to write a book with a unique plot line which isn’t to hard, most of the time. All it requires is a good imagination and strong creativity, and of course catchy titles.
