Finding Motivation to Write

Author: Roza Csergo / Posted: 27.06.19, 10:30:58

Dear Me, 

A year ago I made a promise to myself. 

I vowed to write every day, and make my dreams come true. 

I said I won't just sit around anymore, dreaming about it. I said I'm gonna make it happen. 

I'm here to remind myself, the year is up. Another birthday has passed. 

And again, I trampled my greatest desire. Why? ... I don't even have an excuse this time. 

So I'm gonna sit my ass down, and write those damn stories. Only I can tell my tales, nobody else can. 

I won't shut down my muse because I'm afraid of criticism. Self-doubt won't get me closer to achieving my goals.

Some people will like them and some won't. That's a universal truth. I accept it. 

This time, I won't give up. I really won't. I promise!

Love, Roza

I remember when I made that promise to myself, it felt like I was setting myself up for unnecessary failure but the truth is without practice you can't get better. That's why athlete's do it. I am a writing athlete but instead of the oh so coveted chapter a day. I've motivated myself enough to churn out at least 1 book a month and that seems to be working thus far. Serving as a great foundation for a way forward ... but that's just me
