April 16

I'm currently working on revisions for one book and sorting through plot ideas on another. In other words I spend a lot of time staring at my own reflection in the computer screen or staring out the window. Sometimes boredom is the only way to induce the creative brain. Of course, I've also shown that deadlines will do the same- so, boredom and fear are motivators. What motivates you?


  1. I'm terrified of boredom. It's deadly to me. So that's one of my main motivations, too.

    Guess the other is paying the rent.

  2. Good thing you've got a pretty reflection! I find when I get like that one of the best motivators is sitting down with some music I like and just trying to let go. Lots of times some lyric or melody inspires a story idea.
