[ Intro, to-do, help ] I've fallen off the wagon. Possible poking needed. Will provide the spoons.

Hello! I am finally making my intro post after lurking for a bit. (hoping that I did this right)  I am having some serious inspiration/motivation issues. If anyone has it in them to be a cheerleader, I could use a bit of help.  Right now I am just trying to get back into the habit of writing everyday. I can't figure out how not to struggle with this.  So this week I am going to try to do some prompts from different communities around DW.  Also I would really like to start scratching some things off of this massive (to me) list.

Welcome to the comm!

If you check back through the comm, or just google them, there's a couple of tools that might help -- like 750 Words, for which you do 750 words, the equivalent of three pages, every day. Or Habit Forge might help you, it'll send you a reminder every night asking whether you did the work or not.

Hello and welcome!

I just started doing 750 words and I really like it. I usually start of rambling about my day and then use it for story brainstorming which helps when I actually sit down to write because I've already spent some brain time thinking about it. The outside checking and rewards are more motivating than I thought they would be.

I've been having motivational problems recently, too. I'd be happy to be a cheerleader and do a bit of poking if you need it. And I find it's helpful to sit down with my laptop and write whatever comes into my head nonstop for twenty minutes or so. Gets the creative juices flowing.
