24 April 2016 – How do you keep yourself writing?

It can be said that there are days where I get nothing done due to other commitments. I can’t keep a dedicated schedule of waking up at 7 a.m. and writing until 3 p.m. like famous authors can. However, I do try to write something every day even if it is just 500 words or some editing. I find I can keep writing in some shape or form. I have been asked before how I keep my motivation going at a high pace, and I will write down what I said to those people. Two work colleagues, one in the UK and one in Sweden, died at tender ages due to cancer. Although I can’t claim to have been best friends with them, I can say that their deaths brought my own mortality to light. It created the drive and the reason I needed to do anything, not just write books. Nobody is born with a best before date stamped on the underside of their feet, and therefore nobody knows when the Grim Reaper will catch up with them. Therefore, I feel it is important to achieve what I want to achieve in this life and do it before Mr Reaper has a chance. People who have passed on too soon might have not had the chance to achieve what they wanted to achieve, and if I waste a day by doing nothing, a day my deceased colleagues would have liked to have had, then it feels I am doing them a great disservice. I find this keeps me writing and pushes me to accomplish achievements.
