Just Another Struggling Writer

The lamentations of yet another person struggling to write a novel.

Monday Motivations; Writing is Exercising

Hello everyone and welcome to another wobbly week of writing. 

Friends, I’ll be honest. I’m having a hard time thinking about writing today. Which feels weird, because normally it’s the primary subject in my brain, but for some reason… I’m just not feeling it today. In fact, just typing up this blog post feels like a chore.

And writing is just like that sometimes. I’ve known this; the cycles of my creativity have waxed and waned more times than I can count. What I’m still trying to figure out, though, is when I need to push through that malaise and when to give myself a break.

Today feels like a push through day.

It’s like getting up early and going to the gym (which I also struggle to do on the regular). Yes, you’re missing out on a nice warm bed and an extra hour’s sleep. Yes, it makes you sweaty and your muscles ache. Yes, it can be a pain in the ass. But if you don’t go, then that makes it okay to not go the next time. Until the habit isn’t going to the gym, it’s not going. 

Is it just me or am I just trying to shame myself into going to the gym tomorrow? 

Either way, even though I don’t suuuuuper feel like it, I’m gonna do some writing today. Until next time, friends!

About Me

Kerry Share’s love for writing started, as it so often does, as a love of reading at an early age. At age 11 she wrote her first short story, a Harry Potter knockoff of dubious quality, and her love for creative expression was born. Throughout her teen years she continued to foster that passion through derivative work, and at 23 she turned her eye to original fiction.

Now in her thirties, having taken a break from creative endeavors to cope with an ever changing life and landscape, she is determined to make her dream of a writing career reality.
