It’s already the second month of 2015, and that’s hard for me to accept. It feels like it was only a few days ago that I was planning my New Years realities and setting up my blog schedule. But from then until now, I’ve done nothing. And I don’t even know why.
Yes, I now have a gym membership and work out 3-4 times a week, but I have time before that. Yes, I’m spending more time with my friends, but a blog post doesn’t have to be seven pages long. Yes, I haven’t been reading as much lately, but I blame the gym for that one!
I feel like I’ve fallen into a writing rut, and no amount of anything has been able to really motivate me, personally or professionally. I have so many things I want to accomplish within the next few months and this year, that I feel that pressure may be getting to me and making me not want to reach for those things.
Pressure and I have never seen eye to eye, and disappointment is something I’ve become more familiar with over the last four or five months. And it sucks. Last year, I was writing four to five posts a week, a book review every two weeks or so, and little happenings in my life. Now? I don’t even know where to start.
I see the bloggers that I’ve been following for years continue to push out great content and I can’t help but wonder just how they do it. From the book blogs to the writers to the poets and everything in between, here is my question to you:
How do you stay motivated?
