Come to think of it…sometimes as writers, our passion fuel tank for writing enters red. Writing work becomes a burden rather than fun. We look for words and they will seems to have hanged somewhere. Writing is bored. Mechanical. Void of inspiration and without any life.
Hun! Passion is affected. Soul is drained of inspiration. No more light. We stop writing. We cease to be a writer.
Passion is dead. But not buried yet!
The question is: How can you revive a dead passion for writing?
#1: DON’T BURY YOUR DEAD PASSION
Many writers normally make mistakes of quickly burying their dead passions. They will quickly conclude that it is over. They think they have lost their gifts and talents.
Grave mistake you must not make.
Never conclude you have lost your gifts. We don’t lose our gifts. We only stop using them.
#2: DISCOVER THE PROBLEM
When it comes to issue of dead passion, we must consider the following potential troubles.
…How often do you fill your passion tank?
…Have you checked for leakage?
…Are you filling your passion tank with original fuel?
No matter what, try to detect the problem. Get to know what is draining your passion.
#3: DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY
Once you discover what is draining your passion for writing, deal with it immediately. Don’t allow the problem to deal with you. Let it not stop you from making the best of your gifts.
Get back to your usual practice!
Ask God to refuel your passion. Ask Him to give you a burning heart and desire that will never relent.
Cut off your distractions.
Get back to one of your abandoned projects. Take the one that God is leading you to and focus on it until you complete it.
Always remember that great writers are not problems free but they only develop the ability to deal with their problems. That’s what makes the difference. I like you to read my article on 7 Habits of Highly Successful Writers (Part 1) and (Part 2)
Remember how to Revive Your Passion for writing:
1.) Don’t Bury your Dead Passion
2.) Discover the Problem
3.) Deal with the Problem immediately
