My Writing Space

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit

Each folder contains a separate project and sometimes just the act of reaching out for a colored binder gets me excited to do something and stop procrastinating.

After being away last month I have been struggling to ground myself back into a revision routine. The past week has been about overcoming jet lag and getting back into the swing of things at work so putting the creative brain on has been a little bit of a struggle I have to admit.

That said though, I believe this week will be better. I’m getting restless and just want to sink my teeth into revision and make some progress on this WIP! Catching up on everyone’s blog posts just wants me to make some progress too and I am a little bit mad at myself for the rusty start I have had so far.

How about you? What do you do when you lose touch with your revising mojo?

Love and light,

  1. I like your window view. I have contemplated moving my desk to the window, but since I’m generally typing while prone on the couch or in the bath, it seemed excessive. Some day I hope to type with a lake view sparkling in front of me. For now, I’ll take poodle butts and bath water. 🙂

  2. If my mojo is muddy, I offer myself rewards. Example: One hour of revision = one episode of guilty pleasure TV – one hour of reading someone else’s book – a cup of tea, or…whatever.
    OK. I bribe myself. Until full blown mojo returns this technique works for me!

  3. Strangely enough, writing other first draft stories renews my energy for the current project. Something about letting the muse run free allows my restless creative self to settle back into something more structured.
    I guess you could say it’s like taking the dog for a walk! Once my creative side has been allowed to roam a bit, it’s ready for some quiet time again. 🙂
