Writing in 2020

Writing in 2020

Due to a large number of distractions and obligations nowadays, it is increasingly hard to focus on creative writing.
Modern-day writers have the problem of procrastination and may be suffering from writer's block as well. Our idea of a successful and productive writing session is three hours of uninterrupted writing in a quiet place. But this is not happening regularly for most writers.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Just find five minutes and start doing your work, with complete concentration. Write for five minutes with seriousness and focus. You would need to tell yourself that if you don't write for five minutes and wait for the ideal three hours of free time, along with coffee, you may never get any writing done.

It may be painful to come out of these creative five minutes and get back to regular work, so set your expectations right from the beginning: Five minutes is all you have got.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

RELATED IDEAS

  • Brainstorm and jot it down: Start with the prompt, "The time when..." List at least ten things.
  • Narrow it down and focus: Go back to your list of ten and pick three things that are really bothering you, and you feel strongly about. Take 30 minutes of uninterrupted time to write. Focus on the details, the order of events, and especially how they made you feel.
  • Pick one and tell your story: You don't have to write a memoir or be a creative writer. You can also write it from someone else's perspective. Writing it down is to say that this thing did happen.

IDEAS

Recognize ideas that constantly come to you and develop a system to capture them.

Carry around a notebook, leave yourself a voicemail, send an email or use any other way to capture the idea.

Writing And Priorities

If you feel too overwhelmed for writing, list your goals in order of importance. Maybe writing is not your top goal and you are wasting energy thinking you should do it because you haven’t realized it.

If writing is near the top of your list, you need to decide what else can be let go. Get clear on your focus, say no to the things that are less important, and then follow through.
