Writing [Lessons from 2021]

10 Jan

-I get excited to write then lose motivation & traction before I finish the writing piece.

I think it’s bc I get discouraged about the writing phases behind the scenes that don’t get published.

It’s the logistics I don’t care for.  I wanna write the thing I’m enthusiastic about, but you have to lay the groundwork, give all the necessary background info, explain where and who, site sources, edit, and by the time I’ve done all that it’s a slog, and I’m onto some other exciting subject.

I think it’s a matter of training my brain.  Which is what I’m currently doing.  I’m going to try to write daily, just to get into the habit of sitting still, not looking at the television, social media, and reconnecting to the writing process.  Once I am OK with the sitting and attending to writing, I’m going to try to publish a daily post.  Then, it’s in the in-a-row territory that works so well for me.

I still need to finish my TNR series, and I need to finish the Diatlov (however you spell it) Pass theory, and finally, I have a lot of song analyses on the back burner. And I’m excited about all of those. Maybe I need to go back to whatever inspired each writing in the first place to get re-motivated.

I can Google this too, and see what suggestions are out there…
