Often my biggest struggle is lack of motivation which I often write off as writers block. I find, regardless of the cause, my best strategy is to interact with the work. This doesn't mean writing, it could be research, or outlining. I could decide to work on character development and sometimes I even draw (scenes, characters, maps, weapons etc.) so that I'm engaging with the story even though I'm not writing. I tend to find the more I engage, the easier it is to get back into it.
That being said, I also try to run on the rule of 'write, even if inspiration abandons you'. So I try to write nightly, and it seems the more I force myself to write through my blocks, the less I get them, and the easier it becomes to write large portions of text in single sittings.
So yeah. if I can't force myself to write through it, I find another way to interact with the work until it passes.(less)

Writing isn't an easy thing, it takes a lot of time and you make sacrifices most people wouldn't even guess at (the amount of times I've bailed on social events to work would amaze you). This is especially true at the start, but if you're willing to put in the time and effort, if you can stand against the criticism and bounce back from the rejections - if you're willing to keep chasing - you'll get there eventually. It may take years, it may take decades, but that's just it. To succeed you need to keep chasing, even when it seems impossible.(less)

Now that was a marathon! I have never taken so long for a first read through, and I've got to say I'm a bit torn about how I feel on this one. There's a bit of 'story-ception' going on here and I am so very conflicted. Like, what happens in the inter ...more
