Here's something for breakfast:
I'm going to be very plain and honest with you...
Today, Thursday 4th... February.. , is one of those rare days when I sit down at my desk to write and I can't even write anything worth reading...
And truth is.... whenever I feel this way...
I don't force it
And on that basis.... I say unto ye:
Whenever your creative juices ain't flowing and you don't feel like "writing"
"Please don't force it"
If you're a hard-headed shitweasel like me...
...you're going to be tempted to force your way into writing something "valuable"
But... from my experience... it doesn't always turn out well
However, there's still something you can do
If you don't feel your creative juices flowing
What you can do at first is...
Try to write something
See where it leads...
Then, if somewhere along the line
You get all fired up and "you get in the zone"
You would have won the battle against your village people.
On the other hand,
If you try to write and you still feel like crap
Then once again, I must admonish you:
"Please don't force it"
What if you actually have a project to complete before a deadline?
And you don't have that luxury of "choosing not to force it"?
Well, then, here's something you can do...
Play some music (your favorite music)
Have a Cold bath!
Take a walk
Speak to a loved one briefly
Eat a favorite meal
Or anything that removes your thought from writing for a bit
You should feel better after doing any or all of these activities
And then, at this point.... when you start feeling better... (like feeling the sudden urge to write)
What you should do is:
Start going thru the information you've gathered on the project you want to write about...
Remind yourself about the standards you've set for yourself
And how you really want this project to be wildly successful
So your client or your partner(s) can see.. very clearly...
Why you're worth every kobo they put in your pocket
Then, take a deep breath
And start writing
Get out that first draft as quickly as possible
And don't stop for anything
There, I just prescribed a pill for you
And whether or not you choose to take it
...is entirely your affair.
I realize this isn't as precisely written as my other emails
But I hope this helps
P.S: I want to shoot my shot, lol don't laugh...
