A to Z Blogging Challenge: E is for Enthusiasm
Happy Friday everyone! I’m so glad that it’s the weekend because it hasn’t been a great week for me and I have a lot of fun things planned for the weekend. Enough of that though, because I’m continuing my A to Z Blogging Challenge and today is E for Enthusiasm.
It’s ironic that today is all about enthusiasm because today, when I am writing this, I have none. I’m currently in a very stuffy car, travelling on a very busy road in the pouring rain. My back aches and I wish I was at home. Or asleep. But instead I am writing. Actually I’m not sure if that shows enthusiasm or not because despite feeling like it’s the last thing I want to do, I am still writing. Interesting... which leads me to the point I wanted to make.
Even when you lack enthusiasm, a challenge like NaNoWriMo can spur you on. In this instance, it’s the A to Z Challenge that’s keeping me going. I’m writing blogs that I wouldn’t normally write, because sometimes I am too lazy and other times I just find a dozen other things to do. This makes writers prioritise writing!
When your enthusiasm dips during NaNoWriMo, it’s really easy to give in to the temptation to give up. That’s why having writing buddies helps to keep your enthusiasm high. There’s also official pep talks from professional writers, but I’ll write more about them in a later post.
Where do you turn when your enthusiasm dips?
Ok, so here is your daily reminder to visit Rock Paper Spirit if you like my writing. I am doing an A to Z Challenge over there too, which is the A to Z of my wish list. Today I'm writing about E for Electrolysis. Also, don’t forget that if you leave a comment below, I would really appreciate if you left a link to your own blog. I’d like to visit as many as possible during the challenge, although I have fallen a bit behind with that already. I’ll definitely get to you all!
