Getting Back Into Writing

I haven’t done any writing in while… and frankly, I jumped into writing this post because I am procrastinating on doing other work things… oh boy.

I have found that the best way to get back into the habit of writing is to forcibly break the ice and just charge through it. Write anything.

It is starting the ball running that is the tough part, but once it gets going, you just need to use a little energy to keep it going.

I haven’t done any fiction writing. I attempted to write for the March Prompt for MythsoftheMirror, yet have somehow found my story stuck somewhere. It’s a minor detail, but I haven’t just been placing much thought into figuring out what to do. The plot is there, I just need to work on the meat of the story… Hopefully, I get it done before the end of the month. The month is already 50% done… Oh, dear… Hahaha…

Anyway, I’m attempting to write a blog post, to jump-start myself into writing.

I found that whenever I somehow lost the habit or motivation for writing, writing about it sort of helps. It sort of gets my mind into “writing mode”.

Work has been a bit demanding, but things are slowly winding down as the first quarter of the year comes to a close. Perhaps I could get my head back in the writing game and write things.

I think my goal should not be about “writing good stories,” but rather focus more on “writing anything at all.” It should be focused more on writing exercises and prompts. That way, the skill would be kept honed and sharp.

That is all for now. See you around, and have a nice day.
