"The Muse overburdens me with ideas. It's the Motivational Fairy that's giving me the cold shoulder."It's true too. Over the last few weeks, I've received ideas for two different novels, a character description that fits neither of these novel ideas, and a piece of dialogue for that character (maybe?) in a possible sex scene - which is outside my norm. The idea locker is full to bursting. I've got more ideas than I could reasonably write out to completion.
What I am sorely lacking in is motivation. I haven't written anything in three weeks. I think part of it comes down to my inefficiency as a writer; I'm not getting the story out as fast as I want it to be. That's frustrating to me. If I could hook my brain directly into my word processing program and think the story onto the page, I'd be off like a shot!
How do you keep your ideas under control, and what keeps you motivated?
