Lacking inspiration and focus? Try listening to oldies playing in another room when it’s raining. It works.
On a scale of 0 to 10, my motivation is currently at -10. When most countries are getting out of the covid situation, we’re back on lockdown here in France. Being isolated - again - when others make their comeback at the club has become unbearable.
To cheer me up, I decided to read Power Hour by Adrienne Herbert. Reviews were laudatory, and apparently, Adrienne’s writing style has the power to boost your mood and motivation.
Verdict? That is true. Power Hour is a great book to develop better habits and regain some confidence and, above all – the motivation to change your life and achieve your dreams.
This book is the pat on the back you need to keep going.

Cool things to check out
Creative people need habits and routines to thrive. Keeping a notebook is a great place to start and a very powerful habit. You can use it to write anything you want, jot down a few thoughts or write several pages. Just do it every day to get your creative juice going.
Have you ever thought - or been told - that your idea wasn’t original enough to make a good book, novel, or script? Well, that’s bullsh*t: readers don’t want original ideas.
Don’t feel guilty about binge-watching TV shows on Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max (or like me, all of them). This habit actually teaches you four invaluable things about screenwriting.
Want to learn about character creation? Anya Taylor-Joy talks about how she created her Golden Globe-winning role of Beth Harmon in Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit in this video.
A dose of inspiration
The Work You Do, The Person You Are, by Toni Morrison in the New Yorker.
To Daffodils, a poem by Robert Herrick.
