I accidentally found myself motivated today by my past writing.
Although it surely could be a shameless plug for the old project, spending some time in the archives helped me remember why I spent all that time writing. It was hard work, but I now remember I can do good work. Starting again doesn’t feel as daunting having been reminded I’ve done it before.
The motivation must be kicking in a little already, because I started and rejected two drafts earlier today. I was planning to just try again tomorrow, and yet here I am ready to hit publish for the second day in a row.
