Online Writing Problems

I am sure that we have all had to deal with the problem of balancing, work, family, other hobbies, social life, becoming a powerful mage, sleep, and whatever else we can think of with writing. Normally, I have done a pretty decent job with this, but I have noticed that I am starting slip in a couple of areas. The first is that I have begun procrastinating my course work so I can write on my new WIP which I am pretty excited about, the second is that I have not been as active online as I would like too.

For the first area, I just need to suck it up and get my work done first, but for my second, I wanted to ask you guys for some ideas. Has anyone gone through swings in interest with staying active online? If so, what all have you done to keep the motivation up? Right now I am thinking off going on a blog writing binge so I have a solid catalogue to pull from when I don’t feel like making a post. I hope you all are having a wonderful day, and I plan on making an additional post this week that is more along the lines of my regular posts.

  1. I find I’m always more interested in just working on my book rather than being socially active online. But I do believe an online presence has already helped attract agents and readers. So I try to reserve certain times of the day for social media, mostly in the early morning, late afternoon, or evening. I’ve come to realize that I need to take a solid break from it on weekends when I want to spend time with my husband and kids and enjoy other hobbies anyway.

    I’ve come to accept that I’m only going to update my blog at most every couple of weeks and that’s the best I can do. I guess you’ll have to decide what your happy balance is as well. But your blog is always thoughtful and great! I’m sure your creative work is too. Good luck…

    1. Thank you for the kind words, I have noticed that I get spurts of motivation for my blogging. I think I will try to do your idea of dedicating a certain time, where I only focus one connecting online. I don’t know about you, but I do really enjoy being able to talk about writing, but most of the people I live around don’t care about my conversations of the craft. That is probably one of the biggest reasons why I enjoy the community that exists online.

  2. I don’t feel much guilty about letting my online life fade away for a bit. Not having to keep your fans fed is one of the perks of being unpublished, after all. But the idea of binge writing a few posts is a good one, I might try that.
