“You can sit there, tense and worried, freezing the creative energies, or you can start writing something. It doesn't matter what. In five or ten minutes, the imagination will heat, the tightness will fade, and a certain spirit and rhythm will take over.” – Leonard Bernstein
I admit it. This last month I started off with the right intentions but my one part-time job held me back from doing all I wanted to do.
I know, I know.
For today I'll be using something out of THE POCKET MUSE by Monica Wood for an idea on how to help kick that muse into working.
...Set an egg timer for forty-five minutes, and don't get out of the chair until the timer dings. Even if you sit starting at the page the entire time, you're ingraining a habit...
What are some ways the rest of you help get the motivation feeling back?
Also share what your weekly goals are this week. Don't be shy!
My goal is to finish at least 2 chapters of edits. Plus turn that timer on at least once a day this week so I can work on the new beginning to my sekrit project.
