Keeping motivated when writing

Postby MaverickAventura » Tue Jun 30, 2020 1:56 am

One of the issues I've been experiencing the most over the past...okay, for the past several years is motivation with writing, especially when it involves vore. I dunno why but everytime I try and write a vore story (specifically based off one of my previous commissions like this one ) I always end up shuddering to myself, feeling embarrassed and closing my word document before sodding off to play TF2 to just get it out of my head, only for the process to repeat itself a few more times over. It's not that my writing/grammar is poor, at least I don't think it is, I just...well, I don't know honestly.

This has also indirectly affected RPs I've done in the past, which I want to humbly apologise for that.

But yeah, I wanted to ask around for methods and suggestion on how to keep yourself motivated when writing vore stuff. Not so much ideas for the actual stories (just PM me if you do) but ways to keep me from strangling my monitor in a feeble attempt to write.

Thanks in advance :)

Write every day. It doesn't matter if you're writing an entire story or just a clause. As long as you're putting something down, you're making progress. About the embarrassment, I doubt there is a single person contributing to this site who has never acknowledged the absurdity or taboo of this umbrella fetish that links us. Shame, if you have it, should be fleeting. Your enjoyment and desire to create can be more powerful than any suppressive emotion, and know that whatever you create, someone else will be there with you to celebrate it.

that is how humans learn and make progress. a little every day and before you know it, writing becomes a habit instead of a chore. as for the embarrassment, maybe try waiting till your in a "mood" to try writing certain topics, if you know what I mean. it'll help cloud your judgement a little lol

Writing is always hard. You have to just keep chipping away basically until something clicks. You're probably giving up because your brain isn't happy with the outcome and needs to think it over; keep doing so until you figure out an outcome that you are happy/unembarassed about, and once you have that as a goal (like knowing how the story is going to end) it'll write itself.

Here are my tips to keep motivation: sometimes it helps to take a break and go clear your head watch some TV, go for a walk, read a book, or take a nap (personally I do push-ups and shadowbox) but anything that gives your brain a rest for a moment. Writing takes a lot of mental and creative energy so believe me when I say that I perfectly understand the lack of motivation. Hells I LOVE writing but even I have some days where I just don't want to do it and that's ok. Afterall God rested on the seventh, didn't He?


It also helps to focus on what you're thinking about. Writing can be challenging but don't make it harder by forcing yourself to focus on one thing just to get it done. And you don't have to force yourself to write 10,000 words a day if you aren't feeling up to it. It's ok to pace yourself, slow progress is still progress!

That's something I've always been trying to get myself to fully accept, even though I see it first hand on multiple occasions.

Want to thank all else who've replied here. I've been reading the replies but haven't had the chance to directly respond!

Okay, after reading through the advice, I'm going to attempt to just write something and go with it tomorrow, after I've had some rest. Fingers crossed! :-D

The golden rule for staying productive: Motivation is bullshit, discipline is king.

The only method that works reliably is to force yourself to sit down and write. Don't wait for inspiration to strike, force inspiration to come to you. Which it will naturally if you keep yourself in state of creative flow. Just sit down and do it. Make a habit to take out a couple of hours per day to only focus on writing, make that a fixed schedule and it will turn into a routine. For that to work it's crucial that you shut yourself off from any distractions during that time. Smash your TV, cut your internet, lock your phone in a safe and throw it into the sea. Because your monkey brains craves instant gratification over long-term gain, because writing doesn't give you instant pay-out getting distracted by stuff like videogames is so very easy. But, if you manage to actually make something all the way to completion, even something as silly as horny vore story, you will feel proud. Not of the final product, but of yourself, of the work and effort you put into it. Keep that goal in mind, that feeling of pride and fulfillment of "I made a thing! A thing I can share with other human beings who also like things!". Striving to achieve that moment is usually the whole point of making something to begin with.
