Haiku Wednesday

Motivation is

Something that drives you forward

More life gives purpose.


Is motivation

Forward? you drive that something

Purpose, gives life more.



Something that gives more

You drive life forward.  Purpose.

Is motivation.


More motivation

That purpose drives you forward,

Gives more.


I have really been struggling to find the need to write my novel or simply blog.  My motivation has taken off and is playing hide and seek, though it wants me to count to 10 million it seems.

If any of these Haiku’s can help a budding writer of any kind then excellent.

Likewise, if anyone can encourage or provide some inspiring words I’m all ears.




"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018

  1. Look at only today and what you can achieve. Sometimes when we think about an entire book we need to write it just feels ridiculously overwhelming, and then to think where to start! Eeesh! For me its just about getting started, once I have a little bit done, even just the title I feel more accomplished. So even if its just a paragraph just get something written – anything. Great things have to start from a small beginning!

    1. I missed your comnent first time round, sorry. I love your viewpoint on writing and very much agree with it. A sentence or two a night can achieve a lot over time. Thanks for some inspiration angelapoway👍😁

  2. I tried to respond in kind. These were quick, so may be a little rough:
    Motivation slips
    Around the brain’s innards
    ‘Til the soul boots it
    “to Jumpstart moti-
    vation: visit ‘Despair of
    Your Words Never Live’ ”
    Keep writing, Tan M Butler!
