Is it worth Writing when you don’t feel like it?

Blank PageThe blank screen. The blinking cursor. So much possibility. But as you put your fingers to the keys… nothing.

We all get situations where we don’t feel like firing up the laptop and typing away. If the “muse” is not there, is it okay to put your work aside and wait for the “muse” to return? Or should you persevere?

I’ve written before how you can fight through “writer’s block”. But the question I’m posing here is should you fight it?

It depends on a single question: are you writing for fun or work?

If it’s a hobby, then what’s the problem? Nothing happens if you don’t deliver. If it’s for work, you need to get it done.

But even if you write for fun, as far as I’m concerned, there’s nothing more fun than the exhilarating feeling of making progress with your writing project.

Keep persevering and working through your trouble. You’ll be amazed at how a little push and reap dividends.
