Do you ever feel you are a seasonal writer?istockphoto-692299112-612x612

Okay not everyone can be like Mary Faulkner and keep pumping out books. Some of us (especially me) like to write when the season is right. At the beginning of the year I feel excited to start fresh to tackle my goals of writing, then somewhere during the year life happens and my writing goals get forgotten.

Some of the time I hit a slump in writing that it looks like I gave up altogether but I am always thinking about it in the back of my mind. When I read a good book, I think “Oh that was some good writing” which makes me think about my own writing. Then I feel depressed I have not written in a while and the vicious circle continues.

So how do you break the habit of hibernation? I recently read a great article about 3 steps to help writers become more successful in accomplishing goals. We should all try these steps. The first is to not wait for inspiration.  I know that seems to be my problem right now.

The second is to not give up because of someone criticizing your work. Everyone will have something to say about everything you do. Try not to get offended and keep on writing.

The third is to set up small wins. We all have high expectations of ourselves and feel we are not meeting them. Ultimately, this can hurt your motivation for writing. Make smaller goals to reach each day and celebrate when you accomplish them.

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
