Sometimes I feel stuck in my writing journey for a variety of reasons (e.g. zero motivation, unable to work through a story, lack of confidence, etc). Writing isn’t easy and being stuck is a component of my writing journey that I have to work with.
Instead of feeling bad for being stuck, I decided to turn things around by clearing the roadblocks.
What does that look like?
I started being gentle with myself.
I stopped forcing myself to write when I didn’t feel like it.
I stopped beating myself up when I didn’t feel like writing.
I used compromise as a motivational tool.
Allow yourself grace when facing roadblocks in your writing journey. Do what works for you.
