Tamora! Your books are my absolute favorite, I've read them all so many times and they've inspired me so much. What inspires you to write when you're not really feeling like writing? I'm having huge trouble with that right now.
I pick a specific time, sit down, and not getting up until I’ve written at least a page or two. Then when I get up, giving myself twenty minutes to do whatever, and then when that time’s up, putting my butt back in the chair, not getting up….
It doesn’t have to be good, it just has to be on the page. When I have another page or two, I can get up, do dishes, pets cats.
Read the books I stole from– I mean was inspired by. Watch the movies, listen to the music. I can’t listen to music with words I understand while I’m writing, but plenty of writers do. Depending on the book, I might have to leave the music off all together.
Depending on the book, I’ve tried different ways to work. Flexibility is a big help. Some people try writing in different places, or at different times.
