Someone Stole My Motivation

I have a lot to do.

My “weekend” at work has switched, so last week I only had one day off before going back to work.  This means that very little got done around my apartment last Saturday, so the to-do list for this weekend is longer than usual.  While I was anticipating being very good and conquering the list, I have found that my motivation to get anything done is completely gone now that the day has arrived.

This goes for my writing as well.  I’ve done very little since I finished Dragon, and my brain is enjoying watching movies, reading, and knitting without characters for company.  Currently I’m back to reading non-fiction, which is an excellent time to start a novel, but again, the motivation is gone.

Does anyone have some spare drive and enthusiasm they can loan me?

    I’m sure you’ll find your motivation. You are an ambitious and talented person, and you are truly excellent at holding on to things that are of value. 🙂

    Plus, you deserve a break – I think that is when the creative pot is stirring deep under the surface and you may not realize it. Certainly the well is refilling. 🙂

    My husband always says it is sometimes good to go to zero. In fact, by going to zero you actually will allow your motivation to build up again. When I find my motivation just not there, I read a motivational book or quotes…sometimes the words of someone else gives me the boost I need. One of my favorite books is
    The Greatness Guide By Robin Sharma. Give it a read you may enjoy it and you may find some motivation that you have been looking for!
