I've been thinking A LOT lately (probably the last 6 months) about motivation. I can be totally motivated and excited about something I'm doing and then, especially if it's a large project, I lose my excitement and motivation and I begin *gasp* procrastinating. So what motivates me? And perhaps that is the wrong sort of question to ask. Maybe I should be asking, "What keeps me motivated?" I don't have problems finding motivation at the start of a project.
I've come to the understanding that I don't really know how to keep myself motivated. I don't know what happens to my motivation. Maybe I need to look at my story in a different way? Maybe I should split up the story into smaller pieces? Maybe I should give myself a time limit? Maybe I should have a few different stories to work on at the same time?
If anyone has any ideas please feel free to share!
