Struggling to Write


This weekend, so far I have written 3000+ words.

I have been telling myself to write for years and stick at it on a daily basis but I fend every God given excuse to not sit down and write.

So, as I always do, I turn to YouTube and search for videos about writing motivation. The below video, really kicked my ass with its bluntness to start writing.

It really hit home.

Why do I want to write? 

I write because I love to write. I write because my brain can't not think up plots in my head. I want to be an author. But getting my words from my head to my laptop is really hard.

At that moment in time, I opened up my document and started writing.

I woke up the following day and wrote some more. Each day telling myself that if I made it to xxxx words I had accomplished something.

I mean, If I can dedicate my time to running, which is physically draining, I can sit my ass on a chair and write. I mean this is my dream right?

Not fame or fortune, but bringing joy to people who read the book. That's all. I mean, if I get fame and fortune then we have an added bonus, but not the main plan.

My main plan is to write books for people to enjoy full time. I would love that.

So I need to stop with the 'I can't be arsed' attitude and write the damn novel. As said below.

I wanted to write this post so that if you're struggling, you can get the same ass whooping I did. 100% worth it.
