3 reasons that keep you from writing
Before we go on, let me tell you that I’m far from being a great writer. And I’m not always in the mood to write and come up with great articles. There have been times when I sit in front of the computer, ready to type out that great article when my mind goes blank.
Then there are moments when nothing comes to mind; every sentence I write makes no sense whatsoever. Does that sound familiar to you?
Thankfully, I don’t get myself in these situations that often anymore. Through my writing career, I’ve been able to recognize the things that restricted me from writing good articles.
Here are my 3 reasons that keep me from writing.
Fear of writing — I sometimes have a habit to put things off on projects that intimidate me. For example, if I land a job that involves lots of research more than what I’m used to, fear sets in of not being to get the right information out.
Trying to perfect every sentence — No matter what you write, nothing seems to look right. What’s the first thing you do? You hit the delete button. At the end of the day, you still don’t have a sentence. Everything you have tried to come up with, even just the first sentence introducing your article has failed.
Not in the right environment — Writing blocks are not always the problem. It could be a number of things such as not getting enough rest or sleep, keeping you from concentrating. Perhaps the room you’re writing in is too hot or cold, too stuffy or the light is not right. All of these could be factors that can keep you from writing.
Now it’s your turn, what keeps you from writing?
