Motivation slump...

Yep, that's exactly what I feel like at the moment. I've been going through a slump where all I want to do is either stay in bed, wrapped in the warm blankets (hey it's Winter here) or just procrastinate which means hours on end playing Facebook games... I can actually waste most of the day with those pointless games.

I can force myself to sit in front of the computer and just stare at the blank page, but that's not going to get my WiP written. One thing I have found that has helped get me out of this motivation slump is throwing myself into an editing course to give me something productive to do. I'm going to go back to my WiP once I'm sure I can productively add to the story.

Have you ever gone through a motivation slump? How did you get out of it?

I'm with you at the moment. I can edit and revise, but I have no motivation at all to start something new. And I know I need to do that soon... Hopefully some motivation will come my way.

I think everybody goes through slumps like this. As much as it sucks, sometimes it's necessary so our brains can recharge. (Or maybe that's just me. I'm guilty of working on my projects till I experience burn-out, so yeah, heh.) Good luck getting motivated again!

I've sometimes taken breaks, write something else or prayed. It all depends on the type of slump you're in. Best of luck getting out of it.
