Writing can be an amazing creative outlet for many. And some take it to the next level of writing and want to make it a job. But some even do it that level but just for fun. All of these are great and I love that people still like to write! But it’s hard to have fun and write when you start to put yourself on a strict schedule.
I know at first hand what it’s like to be put on a strict schedule while still trying to have fun writing. For the past year, I’ve been trying to make writing a job, and for the past two years, I’ve loved writing. Now starting out at making writing your job is super hard. I’m in a lucky situation where I don’t have to work another job, so I have lots of free time to write. And for most, they would have to work another job while writing and that can be pretty tough. Anyways, let’s get back on topic. If you write everyday, good. If you have deadlines, good. But if you keep on cramming and cramming, those hours of writing turn into hours of pain. Like anything, you have to love what you’re doing in order for it to be good. And what I’ve noticed about writing is that if you always keep yourself on a strict schedule, the writing will become stale and the reader will know what’s coming next. Your creative side will instantly shut down and doors will be locked until you get what you need.
I think what helps with this is getting out and doing different things. This could help you by inspiring you or after you might even feel motivated and you can go back on your journey of writing.
I hope this helped somewhat. And remember that writing should always be fun. Love you do and do what you love.
Much love, Chloe ❤
