I typically find this less of an issue, but trying to power through a couple of posts a day to get caught up from my weekend lull has definitely strained my willingness to write. Since most of my usually writing time has been spent watching Flame Fatales, it’s been a bit weird. I find it extremely difficult to focus on what’s happening in a speedrun and process my thoughts in a coherent manner. Especially at the same time. Many people claim to be good at multitasking, but I’m not one of those people.
I find there are a number of ways to keep going, though. Grabbing the weekly topic mid-week instead of during the weekend helps as well, though. I may consider grabbing another prompt or so tonight in order to try and get myself caught up. It’s not so much a lack of motivation as a lack of topics. I’m tired of talking about Borderlands, only doing so because there was something to actually talk about.
The largest part of the battle is just resolving to start a post. If I start, I’ll almost always post something. I won’t necessarily like it, or be happy with it, but those typically take several hours to muddle through and after a while I just give up and wrap it up.
Of course, I’m the last person that should be talking about motivation. For me personally, I just have to want to do it. Finding those individual reasons that make you want to do it is such a personal endeavor that I’m not really certain how to encourage others to do it. It’s all about staying in the middle ground where I have something interesting to talk about at the right time of day.
Speaking of, it’s about time for me to move on with my day, so y’all take care.
