Most writers can’t wait for the muse to visit. We need to write on deadlines, or squeeze the words out when we have time, or when guilt drags us back to the computer to query agents, one after another.
Sometimes though it seems we can’t concentrate, focus, or turn off the judgmental editor sitting on our shoulder.
Find your way over to the National Assn. of Memoir Writers site and get recharged with a look at their memoir roundtables. The site has a generous archive here, but note that some of the content is open to members only.
For more motivation, Poets & Writers suggests The Time is Now, their highly motivating writing prompts sent out weekly with a poetry prompt on Tuesdays, a fiction prompt on Wednesdays, and a creative nonfiction prompt on Thursdays.
Nudge, nudge… another way to stay committed to writing your words.
