Trying to fight my struggles in writing

Writing is perceive to be difficult. During my high school years and before this pandemic, I always hear bunch of complains about how difficult it was to construct sentences let alone write 2 page essays. Few of our teachers especially on Oral Communication and Reading and Writing, as their name imply, expect us to write more of those formal essays and develop our "English" and "Grammar". Yet, we didn't pay attention that much.

I fancy writing. For one good thing; I can express myself more and I ramble more. That's why learning about noise.cash and read.cash impacted my life since day 1. I was able to tell my story and earn at the same time. I was and am able to share my thoughts without worrying whether someone will oppose my ramblings. Not that it did matter much. All I need was something, a place where I can be free and earn. Yes, let's add that on the list!

However, Like a car, we may be out of gas. Sometimes we are caught by either laziness, procrastination and writer's block. They can be vanquished but sometimes they win thoroughly. We let them win.

My Struggles In Writing

It's not a rare event for someone to struggle on writing. Especially to a no-much-experience like me, struggles are expected.

  • I rarely produce good articles, that's what I always feel. (#1: A pinch of self-doubt)

  • English isn't my first language but that's not an excuse not to strive more unto writing good. (#2: Moderate English Writing Skills)

  • I'm running out of good, catchy slash interesting stuff to write about, that may be the top reason. (#3: Lack of Ideas or creativity)

  • Do not have much time or too much time.

  • Slow internet connection (This is a different problem. But I need internet connection to find relevant informations or photos and especially to publishing contents.)

Hence, in order to subdue this growing feelings, the struggle to write, I follow these steps below:

Setting aside writing for a while

That's true. We, I, need rest. Away from writing anything. But, if I were to follow the "setting aside" rule, it may take a week or so until I come back to writing again. Lol. You know it's of outmost significance that we spoil ourselves with proper rest because that's what we really need and deserve.

Apart from that, having a fresher mind is beneficial to producing a good quality content. A day without writing anything and instead diving in other things e.g your hobbies may be of big help. Getting out of the house to eat on your favorite fast food chain, milktea shops, pizza houses etc, are all good to divert your attention away from writing.

But if you still want to write, then write your frustrations 🙌

Looking for inspirations

There are so many sources we can look for inspiration. Internet is a diverse place to start your quest. Photos can ignite thoughts, ideas or reimburse attention to memories;good, bad, scary, embarrassing and or funny. Videos and movies might help refresh our mind from various stressors. Writing prompts might help awaken the creative juices we never thought exist inside us all. It's just a matter of allocating some of our time to hunting helpful provocateurs.

I've read few of my fellow read.cashers's creative sides. They were able to write creatively from random questions, words and prompts-turning-to fictional stories. I've read entries that sound so real but they were just fictional. Writers are flexible trying genres to write about, nature of literature and spicing up their articles or stories.

Reading is good for the soul

Other way maybe thru reading. I endulge more to reading. Uh, novels? English novels to give me a cup of foreign words (but I always forget about those new found words. HAHAHA) I read articles either here on read.cash or random searches on the net. I mostly read informative ones then narrative.

Lastly...

Appreciate your works

The first person to ever appreciate your works is yourself. When you gain your self-trust, then your confidence will boost as well. If you ever think your works aren't good enough, don't feel disappointed about them. Rather, aim to do better. It's a process.

HIRING!!!

I am looking for someone to talk to(LOL). But, yeah, you can freely reach me thru the ff. accounts.

To come up with an article wether if it is creative, informative or personal is always hard. Yes the hardest thing is to get ideas. You do the right thing. If yoy feel you need rest just do that and come back when you have an idea. I always prefer quality over quantity.

Thank you for reading! Yep, I must agree with you. Coming up with ideas is challenging enough and it's not everyday we'll have the will to write nor come up with just an idea. We are sometimes drained by either personal issues whatnots so it's necessary not to beat ourselves too much but rather reward ourselves with sufficient rest💚

Struggles are only when you're getting started here. If you get the gist of writing here, the ideas just flow every day. If you still can't think of any ideas, then prompts and challenges can rescue you from that dilemma. They're available anytime, anyway. 😊

Same here sis. I guess dalawa pa yung na publish ko this month na article. Nawalan na talaga ako ng gana at motivation. I sometimes forced myself to focus and write but my brain and body won't cooperate at all. So, I let myself rest and wait for it to gain some energy to write down something again and be active like what I was before.
