Motivation For Writing

Motivation for writing comes from air, land and/or sea. My belief: Writers should never experience a block due to writing. There's much motivation, in the world, for writing. 

Take a deep breath. Relax. Find your motivation. Pick one. Land? Air? Sea? Don't make excuses.

Yes, life happens. You may become ill, have a family emergency or any number of circumstances could pop-up to steal your motivation for writing.

Refuse to let your motivation for writing be stolen. Capture some moment during a time your motivation for writing is being stolen like the following.

You have planned to work on a writing project, for example. Your writing place is set-up with everything you'll need to spend, at least, two hours writing. You're ready to sit-down. Only, someone knocks on your door.

"Who is it?" You asked.

It's a friend.

What will you do? Explain that you have plans? Or, forget writing and socialize?

Motivation for writing can include how you turned down socializing for writing. Write the account in fiction or non-fiction.

On the other hand, you may decide to socialize.

This is the moment that you must pick the right choice.

Shine through, take comfort in, motivation for writing. Socializing will always be there. Do it any-time.

Writers Make Mistakes

It's a fact of living that human beings make mistakes, and writers make mistakes too. Human beings shouldn't keep making the same mistakes. Still, some people will come behind a person who made a mistake and do the same thing. Likewise, writers fall victim to grammatical mistakes, errors.

Writers can't keep making the same grammatical mistakes, errors, and do well. Writers, as must people in general, learn from their mistakes and become better.

Become better by analyzing what your weaknesses, faults, are. Those are the areas in writing, your life, that need working on. 

You have the tendency to write run-on sentences, for example, then practice not writing such sentences. Make use of the period/comma, and the other parts of punctuation, speech.

A period stops a sentence that makes a statement, or asks an indirect question.

Get a detailed understanding of punctuation by reading:

Frequently Used Punctuation

The post gives you a better understanding of how to use different parts of speech like: adjectives, adverbs, question marks, exclamation points, commas and periods.

Writers make mistakes, but become better through practice. Better writing projects are created through practice and learning from your mistakes.

About Me

My photo

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
