It’s time for this month’s Insecure Writers’ Support Group post, and I must admit, it took me a while to decide what to post about. Not because I couldn’t think of topics, but because I was struggling to summon the motivation to write a post. Just like I’ve been struggling to go through my beta readers’ comments and decide what comments to take on board. I’m totally excited about finishing the edits, I’m just not that pumped about actually doing them. Hence, my headline: meh.
I know I’ll come out of this slump and get back into my writing groove, but I also know it will take some hard work to get there. Because, in my experience, the only way out is through. Meaning, the only way I’ll get motivated again is by continuing to chip away until my mojo returns. Because, as someone famous once said, success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.
In saying that, I’m keen to know if you have any hints or tips for other ways to get out of a motivation slump, both with blogging and with writing. Who knows, maybe I’ll summon the motivation to try one of them! 😉
P.S. Don’t forget to support other insecure writers!
P.P.S. In totally un-related news, I’ve got a guest post on my friends Koren and Alana’s blog, Food Without a Face. If you like the sound of Asian dumpling, veg and noodle soup, go check out my very own (adapted) recipe!
