Motivation

Whoever said you can't wait for motivation is right. Same for inspiration.

Those moments where you just have to grab a pen and start scribbling and it's just happening, they're wonderful but they're unpredictable.

If you want to be a writer, write.

If you want to do anything, do it.

It's easy to sit on aspirations and dreams, talking them up, without doing them. But if you want to do them surely it's because you love doing them. So don't wait for someone to ask you do something and give you a chance, just do it. However you can.

That's what's been so nice about this Creative Club Challenge. Writing without any initial inspiration, just starting - responding to the prompt. It's meant that the result is unexpected. Not always great but often a nice surprise.

So get cracking. No self-censorship. No worries about how good it'll be. Just do it.

You might just surprise yourself.
