This post is meant for those who have started writing but have stopped, or haven’t written anything because of excuses. If you are not in either of these categories I congratulate you on an accomplishment. Still read it though because it might help you from getting trapped in this situation in the future. What I have found to be the main problem for many writers is not really what you would expect. The problem is not forming the idea or sticking to a schedule. It is simply that most writers just won’t do it. Most people will say that they are too busy, don’t have the time, etc…., etc… If you are a person who says, “well, I just don’t have enough time to write.”
I have only one thing to say,“Check your schedule!”
With over 95% of writers you will find there is plenty of time to write a few paragraphs here and there. If you still say you are to busy, check again, if your a morning person, write than, late at night, instead of checking emails, taking pictures, checking stats on social media there is time to write. If you added up every second you spent wasting time (not saying that those things are specifically a waste) there would be an abundance of time in which you could be writing.
Tip#2 If your excuse is I don’t have anything to write about. You don’t have an excuse.
Just doing it is hard, but I have found that once you have broken past the boundary of that first sentence or page, creativity abounds. For some people this is not the case, please do not be frustrated if you are not inspired by a long blank page, I know i’m not. Never, ever, ever! Start writing because you are frustrated, and trying to meet your daily page number, (You might damage property, possibly not your own. I have). If you can stay out of this ditch, then writing will begin to become much easier. Just do it, if you’re still having trouble with it don’t worry, use several of the starters in Tip#1 to get you started, branch out into your own ideas and go from there.
