Not Getting Enough Writing Done & What to Do About It

"Change your mind and it will change your life. If nothing around you changes, change the things that are around you." 
~ Tyrese Gibson

Are you getting enough writing done?

If not, do you know why or what to do about it?

You can tell if you're not getting enough writing done by how much money you're earning from your writing. If you're not earning enough, you're not writing enough.

The quote above is true. If you want change, then something has to change first, because if you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting.

But what needs to change so that you can write more?

The answer depends on your circumstances and what you're doing now.

It can be as simple as changing where you write. 

Some writers find it much easier to write when they're away from home, like sitting in a park or at the library or in a cafe. While others prefer to have a designated writing place at home so that as soon as they sit down their mind moves into writing mode.

Or it may be that you're not doing enough of the right kind of writing.

If you're writing books that aren't selling, perhaps you need to do more marketing, or maybe you shouldn't write books and should blog instead or do freelance writing or affiliate marketing, or branch out and do them all.

Whatever it is, look at where you write and what you write.

Don't just think about it fleetingly, but sit down and give it serious consideration. 

When I need to think something over  I write down what I'm thinking which forces me to look at things logically so that it all makes sense, and then I come up with lots of other ideas.

They say that you can change your life in a minute, by changing your mind.

So if you're not getting enough writing done, change what's around you (physically and/or mentally), because if nothing changes, then nothing changes.
