My advice to people who think they should be writing more but for some reason aren’t? Quit Trying.
Struggling to write doesn’t mean you lack discipline or inspiration. It means you’re not writing the right thing for you. It means you’re trying to write what you think “writers” write. You need to forget that; trying to be a “writer” guarantees that your authentic creative self won’t only not participate, it’ll shut down the whole effort before you’ve sharpened your pencil.
It’s not about making yourself write. It’s about discovering what, for you, writes itself.
“Writer’s block” is just your heart refusing to go where your brain is insisting it should. It just means that you need to dig deeper, be braver.
