Finding the energy and inspiration to write isn't always easy. The number one reason why most books don’t get written is because their authors can’t maintain their writing schedule. Why is that? Why does the energy and enthusiasm for your book evaporate so fast, even though you’re motivated to succeed?
Whether writing comes naturally to you or not, you will almost definitely need to prepare to write your book in some way or another. That preparation may be mental, physical or practical, depending on your situation and preferences. If you have never considered getting prepared to write before now, here are some tips on what to do to make your writing time more productive and enjoyable.
The truth is that we all make plans, we all put some of those plans into action, and we all have plans we never even begin putting into action. Why is that? Is our success down to necessity, simplicity, or our commitment to a project? Do we become afraid and so avoid our plan or do we just get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of work we need to do and so never start? Why do we sometimes make plans and never follow through?
Can any time be a good time to write? Many of us don’t think so. We believe we need certain conditions or circumstances to be able to write. The truth is that we all have a time of day or particular set of circumstances that we prefer when we want to write. That time, for us, is like gold; it is when everything feels easy because we feel motivated, energised and positive.
