Motivational Writing Tips to Get You Writing

Updated on March 19, 2017

Every writer needs inspiration. Here are some motivational tips to get you jump started.

On Writer's Block

If you are experiencing writer's block or creative's block, look inside to your feelings and thoughts for your muse. When you have the courage to express those feelings and thoughts through your creativity, without self-doubt and insecurities, those feelings and thoughts will turn into success. Find your inner voice, express it, and watch the results. Furthermore, when creating, never think about what will sell. Be true to yourself and your art. Think about what you can offer and give, not what you can take or earn. The outcome will be a flourishing, successful venture.

On Creating Your Creative Space

When beginning a creative project, the first thing you should do in order to get the creative juices flowing is to create your creative space. I can't tell you how much this helps when it comes to beginning and finishing a project. You want to make your space a place you love being in. Decorate it, design it, love it. Use personal pictures, paintings, knick knacks, toys...anything you love and you love having around you. Create your space next to a nicely lit window to give you a feeling of freedom. Doing this will bring positive energy to your space and, as a result, to you. With that positive energy, you can begin to create your dreams.

Just Write

On Procrastination

Everyone procrasatinates for different reasons: time, job, kids, lack of motivation, waiting for the perfect time, thinking your idea won't be received positively, etc. No matter what the reason, in order to create and leave your procrastinating behind, you just have to do it. Create, create, create! When beginning any project, don't think. If you are writing a book, don't wait until all of the planets are aligned to start writing. Dive into it. Let your fingers flow over the keyboard. If you're painting a picture, just paint it. Let the paintbrush flow over the canvas. There will never be a perfect time to start so you should just start when the idea strikes you or you will forget what you want to do. If you think you won't have an audience for your creation, don't pay any attention to that. You don't create in order to be received by everyone. You create for yourself. The vibration of creation allows you to release yourself into your work. Let the vibes flow. Let the words flow. Let the creativity flow. Allow the vibration that is coming from you release and then flow back to you.

Don't Procrastinate

Time is ticking.
Time is ticking.

On Being Eccentric

You see things differently than other people. You notice the sunrise and sunset. You walk rather than run to meetings. You're quirky and odd. You're a rebel. You're an artist.
You're eccentric, meaning you are member of all creative circles. Often times, people do not understand you. But, when they see or experience something you have created, they are in awe.
Sounds like you?
Eccentricity is just something that is a part of you. You couldn't be creative without it. People often judge you because they may see you as a nonconformist, and really, that's what you are. Without it, your creativity would die out. The light that you emit would burn away and you would be left feeling nothing like yourself. Allow yourself to be yourself--without fear.
Once you've accepted your eccentricity, start your creative projects. If you don't accept it, you will not produce anything that is a representation or creative outlet of yourself. But, once you accept it, you're true nature will shine through your work. And, the more you are yourself, the more you can create. Don't be afraid of what people will think. Doing that will only hinder you.
Now that you understand and accept being eccentric, start to embark on the most creative journey of your life. Embrace it. Enjoy it. Love it. Nurture it. Be proud.

On Looking Within

Are you afraid to face your demons? If so, you're not alone. Because everyone has an ego, everyone has a fear of looking within and facing what scares them most--themselves. Most people fear rejection, for example. If you fear rejection and don't face it, you will never be able to "put yourself out there" and face acceptance. You will never know if you are accepted, if you are loved, and if people enjoy your creativity. After all, they probably do. It's your fear that is keeping you from knowing.
Facing your fears is one of the best ways to begin to create. It is that fear, which you need to embrace, that is the driving force of your creativity. If you face it, you can create off of it. That fear, that emotion, is so strong it can be resourceful. Use it. Welcome it. Take the time to do some introspecting. You'll be amazed with the results.
