3 Key Actions That Increase Writer Motivation

Good Evening! Let’s talk Motivation! As you know, from my previous posts, I am a huge “Zig” fan! Mr. “Ziglar” stated, “Action must precede motivation!” – This lesson he taught me, in listening to his audios for many, many years, has proven to be very valuable.  I thought that ‘motivation’ was a given in life.  If I just wake up and start my day – motivation was sure to follow – NOT!!! – I kept hearing about this “muse” that is supposed to appear to allow me to release my creativity.  An observation I captured when attending a writing event stayed with me – after realizing that it was a common pattern. During the audience response sessions – I kept hearing these same comments echoing – “I am waiting for my ‘muse‘ to appear to begin writing!”  – or – “My ‘muse‘ never showed up, so I didn’t get my story finished!”  – I had to find out, “What – or – who is this ‘muse‘? – Can I hire them?”  – When I concluded my research, I discovered that many people believe that this ‘muse‘ is supposed to magically appear and pour creative powder over writers allowing them to produce masterpieces.  – Okay – “Stop!” First, I don’t believe in ‘muses‘ – the same as I don’t believe in ‘luck‘ – I do believe in hard work! Second, what I learned ties directly to what “Zig” has taught me about Motivation! I believe that everyone has a story inside of them! I also believe that it takes skill and hard work to  – a) identify and b) release – those stories.  In my process of becoming a writer, I have put Mr. “Ziglar’s” lessons to the test – I was pleased with my discovery – I, and more experienced writers than I, apply the same basic daily rules –
