What to do if you want to Write a BookIf you want to write a book, what can you do?
If I am discouraged, how do I write?
We have a feature this weeks from author and blogshopper Ben Schmitt of The Authors' Nook for you. There are some handy tips on how to write a book when you don't have the motivation: You like to write, but now and then it's the last thing you want to do?
It can be mild sometimes, but the side effect can be severe. In all honesty, the last thing I wanted to do today was to write this entry in the blogs. I' m sleepy and I want a good snooze and a good book. Forcing myself into the café and telling myself, when I'm done, my prize will be a snooze and a book.
To be a serious author, you have to write if you don't like it. Freeze the elapsed on your diary to do your work. If you don't keep to the timetable, you' ll have to deal with it. This is one of the main reason for selecting a supervisor.
If you are feeling well, you will be more focused and prolific. Be sure to write in the period of the daily life in which you are feeling energised. In the past, other writers urged me to write in the mornings as if the mornings were reserved for the top level of vision. Now, I'm waiting till after 5:00 to write.
Do not be afraid of your feelings when you are feeling overtaxed. Just admit it's unnatural. All writers do. It' a thin line and I have no clue where the line is. Thinking I just like that I'm not looking for myself. Of course, if you don't write regularly, you won't want to write when you need to.
Point up to your desk, get away from the web (no research when it's write when you' re listening to your favourite tunes, use your phone) and be bored. Someday you'll write. The researchers found that changing between them costs up to 40% of the test person's total production for complicated assignments (writing and researching are complex).
If you write, write. If you do research, you do research. By mixing the two, you will be less efficient with both. Include your gloom in your letter. It' going to change the atmospheres and choices of your character when you write grumpily. You will sometimes dig up a jewel. Although like me you are suffering from "being human", you can surmount the writer's inhibition, the listlessness and the desire to do something else under the influence of the can.
That doesn't make you a lousy author. Realize that it is self-evident, establish stringent policies to blame yourself, and write even if you don't have it. If you don't want to write, how do you get back on the right path?
