I seem to be having trouble finishing things. I signed on to be a content writer for a podcasting group called Blazing Caribou. They have multiple different podcasts and one of those podcasts is a show about historical events. I was excited! I was what you might call “gung-ho”.
I picked my topic, something I’ve found fascinating for years. And then?
Nothing. I did a little research, figured out what the word count ought to be and then nada. I have no motivation to finish the thing. I desperately want to establish myself in the podcasting arena. I want to write, to create content, I can feel it in my guts.
But then at the end of my day after I’ve sat in my chair staring at spreadsheets for hours, the last thing I want to do is think. So I bury myself in my TV shows and my books and I don’t allow myself to create. I know that I need to take the time to do so. I can feel it starting to become bad for my mental health.
I should start with the stuff for Blazing Caribou but where’s the motivation? Why can’t I hang on to this feeling throughout the evening that I have first thing in the morning?
