- If procrastination is your problem, the only way to fix it is to set aside time to write. Period. No excuses.
- Not inspired? Take some time (even if it’s ten minutes) and go outside for a walk.
- Green with envy -- is so not your color. Don’t give up because somebody else was published first.
Diagnosis: Self-Doubt. We’ve all wondered at some point: What if I’m not any good? A writer’s self-doubt is tough to overcome.
Remedy: Letting others evaluate your work is necessary for constructive criticism and growth as a writer. You can start small by having a close friend or relative read your work. Taking that first step will give you the confidence to show your work to a broader audience.
Diagnosis: Impatient Attitude. We know, we know: You want your writing to reach as many readers as soon as possible. But impatience doesn’t just cause unnecessary stress -- it negatively affects your writing. Rushing will divert your focus from creating quality work to worrying about your typing speed.
Remedy: Take a chill-pill and relax, re-read, and rewrite. Take the time you need to achieve your goals without sacrificing quality!
