Do you write better when you are in a good mood?
8th Hub of the 30/30 challenge Are you a better writer when you are in a good mood?
I like to think that I write some of my best work when I am in a good mood.
I write posts for my blog, and for several other websites on a daily basis, and sometimes it can be hard for me to get in the mood to write, so instead I just try to make the most out of my time, and get my work done.
It's not as if I do not like to write, it's just that there are times when I really do find it difficult to keep up with all of my work, and this makes me feel a bit down.
When I'm in a great mood, it makes it easier for me to get all of my work done, and still have the energy to apply to more jobs, or write blog posts to have in advance. When I'm in a so-so mood, not only does this interfere with my writing creativity, but it also opens up the door for writer's block. This alone can be a problem!
How to get in the "mood" to write.
How do you get in the mood to write everyday? Do you have a routine that helps you get inspired, and motivates you to get your work done? I do! Some of the things that I like to do, that helps me get inspired to get work done is simple:
- Look over past finished assignments
- Look over the amount of traffic that my work gets, and figure out how You can increase it even more, and finally
- I comment, and return comments on my blog, and on other articles that have brought me great traffic such as: Increase your Hubpage Rankings: Be Findable and earn more, and Ten Habits of highly successful writers.
Even though writing is my passion, it can be hard to get myself to finish or even get started on my work for the day, because I have one too many things on my to-do list. One thing that helps me out enormously is taking things one step at a time. There is no need to feel overwhelmed with all of the work that you have to do. If anything, it is better to take things slowly, and to do them right, then to try and tackle all of the work at once, and fail completely.
Why time management is essential.
The best ideas come to me late at night when everyone in my house is asleep, and I have the computer all to myself. The peace and quiet not only helps me relax, but it gives me a chance to get lost in my own head and think of all of the things that I want to accomplish, and write about.
Being a writer can be a difficult job. One of the tasks that we must master is Time management skills, and how to get as much work done, even if we just have that one hour. Since our job is mostly made up of deadlines, it is that much more important for writers to take the time to sit down, and write down a schedule, and hard as it may be, try to fit everything in!
Through out your schedule it is very important for people to make time for themselves, and to have that special time to just sit and think, so that they can work with more ease and accomplish more.
I've heard so many writers say over and over again:
"I wish I had more time to myself" or "I'm so busy with work, I'm so frazzled."
This doesn't have to be a problem if writers had the time to think and jot down their ideas without having to worry about anything else.
