Did you lose your writing motivation

Did you lose your writing motivation?


Well.
Imagine you are on a flight.
Quite tired, after a sleepless night, casually depressed (as writers should be, dah) and quite bored.
You want to work on your novel that you've been working on forever.
You hate it.
You want it to burn in hell sometimes, and yet, you love so much that you can't wait to edit it and watch it flesh out.

Since you're a stupid writer, and a stupid person in general, you save the files only on one place.

Your flash driver.

On the flight you pull the computer out of your writers' backpack and put this into the airplane seat pocket.

All swell right?
Well.
This happens.

It's fucking breaking due to the pocket being too small to fit the laptop and the epic length of your flash drive.

So it breaks.

And you realize you could never see your darlings again.

Ever.

Have I had a heart attack on this flight?
Well, I've had a meltdown plus a panic attack.
It counts though.

Have I lost my writing motivation after this???
Fuck me, I haven't.

Gonna rewrite the shit out of this lost novel and it's going to be polished.
Good.
I will cherish every single minute of effort I put into this.

Cherish your work.
The feeling of it being deleted completely….
Because of mere stupidity….
Is an heart ache.

Best of luck,
Mason


Happens to me time to time.
Sometimes I can't stop myself from writing and sometimes can't write at all.
I believe that we all have a image in mind when we write, which might be of someone who inspires us or maybe the person we want to be.
Sometimes that image or that inspiration becomes little blur and we loose our motivator to write.
But it's easy to find it back, just try concentrating or looking for it in a positive way or just drive inspiration from the situation that your motivation actually got lost.
