What Motivates Me?

That’s a good question, because dude…sometimes motivation is hard. Really hard

In all truth…I’m motivated by deadlines.

Hard deadlines.

The kind I can shove back and delay don’t really do it for me.  I need something firm, with serious consequences if I don’t finish the project.

Also, I’m motivated by the story. If it’s something I love, I usually have no problems writing on it.
If it’s something I like, but I’m not crazy about where or how it’s going to be published, I’m less motivated to work on it.

Also…I’m motivated by guilt. I have a few friends I exchange chapters with via email whenever we finish them and I feel more motivated to write when they send me theirs. Like…I need to keep up with them – not in a competition sense, but in an I’m letting them down if I don’t sense. Lame…but true.

So yeah…these are my motivations.  

Stress and guilt.

It’s how I roll.

Yep, guilt is a huge motivator isn't it?? Another motivator for me is when I'm on IM with Jarman and I have to tell her how many words I've written. Ummm, none doesn't work.
