A Writing Strategy for Creatives Who Don’t Feel Like Showing Up Today 

I’m sharing this because I don’t emotionally feel on top of my game today. 

Because let’s be really human here. 

Everyone has bad days. 

Everyone has days where we feel uninspired, tired, sad, or in a mood.

I keep a blog, so I feel accountable to my community for coming back.

Here’s what I do to show up to my writing game, even when I feel like a puddle of *r**ad**as*****

  1. Open up your writing document
  2. Allow yourself to write and create whatever comes out
  3. Don’t be a harsh critic on yourself
  4. Wrap up whenever you’re done. This can be 15 minutes to 2 hours. It doesn’t matter, it’s whatever you feel, so long as there’s something on the document that is relevant to your practice
  5. Thank yourself for showing up and doing a piece of your work. You know it was hard but it’s over now

You might be feeling like *r**ad**as***** right now, but the hardest part is showing up. 

Feeling pretty proud of myself now that I’ve finished this piece up.

  1. 1. Let your writing be what it wants to be- be creative, expressive, and whatever comes out.

    2. Don’t be critical of yourself- it’s okay to be negative, but it’s important to stay focused on your practice.

    3. Wrap up your writing when you’re done- it’s okay to be proud of yourself, but it’s also okay to be grateful for the work you’ve done.
