Motivating Factors

It’s nice out now, though getting onto evening, but I was thinking about motivation this morning as I heard the rain pattering down on the deck, considered putting on shoes and a jacket to go rescue the plants I’d potted this weekend, and decided instead to stay in bed. It wasn’t a very long stay, as Trixie Implausible needed to be dressed, groomed, fed, and sent off with Rexroth to day care, after which I got to work, but it got me thinking…
It’s one thing when your writing is going well, and you’re on a roll, tossing chapters off with the ease of Carrie Bradshaw-esque bon mots about shoes, but what do you do when it’s not going well, when the thought of sitting down to your favored writing device is as uncomfortable to imagine as getting out of a warm, cosy bed on a chilly morning? What do you do?
Me, I avoid the work, so let’s not talk about me. What do YOU do? How do you motivate yourself?
