Episode 82 – Finishing Power

Nora Roberts said:

A writer never finds the time to write. A writer makes it. If you don’t have the drive, the discipline, and the desire, then you can have all the talent in the world, and you aren’t going to finish a book.    

Look at your writing  projects. Do you have some that are finished? Did you abandon any? What happened from the initial spark to where you finished or stopped working on it? What does this tell you about the reasons to finish or quit a project?

  1. I found yin yoga easier to do than the other styles. It’s so true when Mariëlle said how bad habits are easy to keep. I find myself that if I have a “bad” day it’s too easy to let that bleed into the rest of the week. Monday I always tell myself is the ‘reset’ day when I try to keep all those good habits.
    I do write detail outlines, but once I start the draft I paste in the document. So it can feel like I already wrote 10k words in the project.
    My big takeaway from this talk is the idea that my wellness reflects the wellness of my writing.

    1. Thank you for contributing. I love the idea of using an outline to overcome the mountain of the blank page. Unfortunately for me, the outline is more of a challenge than writing the novel. This might work well for Mariëlle and others though, and yoga can only help with our writing, Lucinda x
