Welcome to D-DAY of the Operation Awesome A-to-Z Blogging Challenge! This month we're doing 26 posts on WRITING MOTIVATION.
Are you burned out? That's okay! Taking a break from your WIP is sometimes what you need to recharge. Or, are you letting your current WIP sit for the recommended 4+ weeks so you can go back to it with fresh eyes?
My part of our Writing Motivation theme is – Things to work on that still count as writing!
D – Daydreaming
Is your Act 2 suffering from sagging middle syndrome? Are you stuck on a plot point? What happens next? Ideas for your new WIP?
You have the permission of the Operation Awesome team [not that you need it] to take some time to daydream! Go for a walk. Stare out the window. Draw. Paint. Work with clay. Watch a movie. Read a book. Clean your house. Take a shower. [Isn't it always strange that you get really good ideas while you're in the shower?]
After all, writers are never NOT writing. Sometimes the writing is just happening only in your head.
If you're out of ideas
Where do you get your ideas?
Worried that someone will steal your ideas?
Where ideas come from
The art of finding ideas
