Scared of (or scarred by) Writing

Why do I feel this way? What is this fear?

I like writing. I literally get ten ideas a day for books, so why don't I get to writing? It's not like I watch TV (or YouTube), or go out. I basically sleep all day before going to work at night. AND I kinda sorta stopped drinking.

I think I know. And it HAS to be because of bad habits. What I need is a schedule and stick to it.

I have to turn writing into brushing my teeth, or putting on my pants...or breathing. That's how it was with my other books: I was so inspired, I just started writing the very moment I woke up. It's true. But somewhere down the line I started getting depressed -- then unmotivated -- then came the beer, and on and on it goes with the reasons. I ended up with bad habits.

I can change again -- change back into the old me. I know what to do to get back into writing.


  1. I've been going through the same thing lately. I guess we just need to make ourselves write - no matter what.

    What you said about setting a schedule is a good idea. I'm going to do that and I'm also going to make more deadlines for myself and make myself stick to them.

  2. Trust me, it's works. It's more a matter of adjusting your body to this new idea of things -- conditioning it. It's true what they say, too: You are what you do over and over again.

    You'll get used to it.

    And then the habit forms.
