Do you ever start writing an awesome piece then forget to finish it?
Do you get bored with your writing and move on to what seems to be a
more interesting, exciting idea? We know it can be challenging to stick
with what you started, but here are some tips to help you finish that
Choose comfortable topics. When you have a passion for what you
are writing about, you will have so much to say! Make sure your topic is
something that truly inspires you and can be written into a novel. This
will push you to complete it so your words get out there and can
hopefully encourage many others to do the same!
Fake a deadline. Pretend you are writing your novel as a school
assignment, and make different parts of it due each week. By setting up a
goal for yourself, it will push you to finish it, just as if you were
writing an essay or research paper. Plus, it is not as overwhelming if
you take baby steps toward your ultimate goal!
See your novel as a draft. Don’t stress yourself out about the
little details just yet! See your novel as a rough draft that will in
turn come with mistakes and errors that you can polish up later. Focus
on getting your main idea into your novel, and when it comes time to
edit, you can revise.
Eliminate distractions. Close up all your accounts that would
interrupt your writing such as Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. Sometimes
you may say you are going to write but get bored and find yourself
spending countless hours seeing who said this and that. In fact, try a
different venue to write in, such as your local library or park where
there is minimal noise or nuisances!
Set aside time. Take time out of your day to write, whether it’s
30 minutes or an hour. If you do this, reward yourself, which will
motivate you to keep writing. You can fit your time around your schedule
or end up writing in your free time whenever that may be. Just remember
to push yourself and even keep notes on how much you have accomplished
with the time and how much you write. Look back to this when you become
unenthused with your writing.
