I think my greatest struggle has got to be time management. I’m not sure how many of you can relate but I’m going to assume a vast majority feel the same way.
If I’m not distracting myself with social media or funny pictures on 9gag I’m probably watching a tv show, movie or playing a video game. The worst part of that is while I do those things; in my head I’m thinking ‘oh I know what to write for the next chapter’ or ‘yes I’ve finally figured out what that character wants!’ Yet I stay distracted so those thoughts tend to dissipate.
I think the biggest solution to this type of problem is greater self control. Some sort of self improvement is required on that front. A good friend told me that when she wants to paint but has trouble being motivated she’ll just start doing it and the drive will come sooner or later. I respect that, I suppose I’m more lethargic than even that at times.
Anyways, the point I’m trying to get to is, I think I could use some pointers on this one.
