Emotions, Energy and Writing
Contributor

For most writers, I believe that writing is a feeling endeavor, but when our energy levels are low, it also effects the emotions, thus the will to write, i.e., our emotions drop too. That's when I know it's time to commit to a daily schedule, in writing, until the energy drain subsides and recedes back to where it came.

Personally, I don't like to plan my writing, but would rather just sit at the desk each day and work at whatever time feels right. However, on rare occasions when I am emotionally sluggish or drained or simply not up to the demands of writing no time feels right. To keep from giving into my feelings and not work at all, I create a schedule outlining what I need to get done that day.  And it works every time to get me back on track!
