I’m going to be honest, we writers forget the most important reasons why we write all the time.
Sometimes we fall out of love of writing, sometimes we hate it, sometimes we stress about it…but in the end, it all boils down to these 2 truths about it that I’m going to be sharing with you today!
Let’s get started!
1. Remember WHY You’re Writing This Book
You could be writing for yourself. You could be writing for the world. You could want a message known everywhere, or you just need a place to let your imagination run loose.
Still, no matter what the reason, us writers tend to forget why we’re doing what we’re doing.
This is true for many things in life. Why do we blog? Why do we draw? Why are we doing what we’re doing?
There’s always a reason; whether it be to simply get better at something, or to change the world…there’s always a point.
And you can’t forget it.
If you don’t have a why, think of one now. If you have one, remind yourself of it continuously, and let it empower you to keep on going.
2. Remember That You Love To Write
Okay, even when we say we hate it and even when we weep and wail…
…somewhere DEEEEEPPPPPPPppp down…
We actually love writing.
The thing is, writer’s are always so worried about word count, so worried about getting things right all the time, so worried about a gazillion things that most of the time, we end up actually forgetting the biggest part of it all:
That we LOVE to write!
This was a quick little post, yes, but I hope it’ll be a nice refresher for you this morning to remember that despite all the pains and problems it brings…
…you love to write.
Don’t forget that.
Why are you writing your book?
Can you think of some other obvious things that slip by us writers too often?
Also…I’m alive! I’ve been taking a lot of hiatus’s lately, but I plan to do my best and get back into it.
