Why You Should Write Even When Inspiration Eludes You

Are you waiting for the right time to write your booklet?  Maybe you’re just too tired to write right now, or maybe you’re waiting for some great spark of inspiration to ignite your imagination and send your fingers flying across the keyboard in a flurry to get your sizzling prose down while it’s hot.  Or, maybe you’re sick and just taking it easy until you feel better.

Why You Can’t Afford To Wait For Inspiration

If any of the above describes you, drink some caffeine to wake up, take something to help you feel well enough to sit at your computer, and realize that inspiration rarely ever comes when it’s needed most!  Each of these things is simply an excuse to keep you from achieving your goals.  Think about it.  When aren’t you tired?  When do you feel really well, all revved up and ready to write?  And how often do you feel truly inspired?  Probably less than 1% of the time if you’re like most people.

Your Riches Won’t Come From Thin Air

Writing a booklet and running a booklet business takes a commitment.  You can’t continually put off your writing and expect your booklet manuscript to get completed.  Nor can you shirk your responsibilities to your business.  You must be willing to keep your nose to the grindstone even when you don’t feel like it.  That’s not to say that you can’t rest if you’re truly very ill, but most of the time we like to make excuses for not doing the work we need to do.  And if we don’t do the work, we won’t reap the riches from it.

You don’t have to be a genius to write a booklet, nor does your writing need to be perfect every time you sit down at the keyboard.  You can always proofread it later and make changes.  The point is to get something done so you can keep moving forward.

The more time and effort you put into your booklet business, the more you will get out of it.  It’s all up to you!

To your riches!

  1. Try reading, “Writing On Both Sides of the Brain” by Henrietta A. Klauser. It’s an old book- probably came out in the early 80s. She talks about writing without editing at the same time- something we all learned in school, but which shuts down much of our creativity. One fellow suggested writing with your monitor turned off so you can’t see and edit what it is you are writing. Just write first, edit later.

    • Thank you for your comment, Larry. I’m sure there are many readers here who will benefit from the book you mentioned. And what you said is right on – “write first, edit later.” Yes! Just get it down. You can fix it later. The point is to get it done!
