    Ah yes money, the all powerful motivator.:)
    @Otto Baynes
    I very much liked your soup kitchen analogy. I'll be sure to reflect on it the next time I'm not in the mood to write.;)

    Ask a question. Then wait for an answer. Write it. Continue asking questions? Wait for an answer and write again.

    Start with, "Why am I not in the mood to write?" See what happens.

    You might be surprised when an actual conversation starts with yourself.

    Have used this to get some pretty interesting insights and answers.

    @Spoiltdiva................ there is nothing big than money in this world..... if you are not in the mood you still can write as much as you can but not for writing for money.... because you and your mind know that if you dont write you wont earn so whatever the mood is we still right it... and i think all of the members agree with me....

    This is an interesting idea, I have to admit. But if I begin arguing with myself during the conversation then I'll probably seek help.:eek:
    @mentat47
    Money, money, money, it makes the world go around. But I for one need more than this motivation in order to write quality material.

    Writing effectively is the best method to engage people and even audience and there is social media is big platform to play important role in our life
    Some up points should be noted down right now :-
    1) Catchy Title
    2) Important information clause added everytime
    3) Bold words at some point of catchy lines
    4) Hyperlink is possible just for once time
    5) bullets should use
    6) End title should be decent way

    If you simply can't settle down to write for any reason, even knowing you've manufactured it, accept the feeling. If you berate yourself, you'll only feel worse. Just my 2 cents :)

    A catchy title is all important and sometimes writers overlook the importance of this and fail to give it the attention that it deserves.
    @nhc1987
    I understand but the theme of this thread is not about acceptance but rather solution.

    If I am not in the mood to write, I will try and just make myself write one or two lines - nothing too fancy.

    Usually, after that - the creative juices start flowing and I just can't stop.

    So, when you're not in the mood - just try and write two sentences and see how you feel.

    If I am on off mode didn't write anything. Take some times to be cool and then start again.

    It really is when all is said and done, all about getting those creative juices flowing once the spigot has been turned off.

    English words? Yes.
    English sentence? No.
    English NONSENSE? Yes.

    Read the TOS. It says that if you can't write decent English, have a friend help you translate out of your mother tongue. Of course, if you DID read and understand the TOS, you must not have ANY friends!!!

    I don't think Google Translate will be able to help you unless you know which language this came from AND you understand the language yourself.

    Just for laughs I tried French for you:
    I bet that was no better.

    Perhaps you could have translated his post in Martian and it would have come out for what it was, out of this world and spaced out.

    This is a methodology that I often use. I find that listening to music clears my mind so that I can start afresh and create. Creation is a key element of good writing along with good grammar and punctuation, research and all that other boring stuff.

    Each day authors cannot write hundreds of articles where demand for such articles is in thousands. A page visitor looks the content he sees first on the page and decides to hang on or leave up. Hence content are the key points where the page catches the attention of the visitor. Therefore mood does not impact on writing as the demand is huge and timeline is shorter. so you need to write and finish for next next topic to start.

    It may not impact your overall writing but if your not in the mood to write it will impact good creative writing. I'm not talking about quantity here, rather quality. There is this difference that all good writers care about. This is what this thread pertains to.
