    This.

    Honestly though, I can't really put my finger on what motivates me to write. It's just this muse I get from time to time after daydreaming about how awesome it would be if this could happen in the fic that I feel like writing. If I force myself to write, I don't get much, but useless garbage. That, I think, is why my update schedules are erratic, besides IRL. Imagining the exciting scenes in my mind when I'm feeling bored also gives me the will to write. Kind of like writing a diary, but with fictional people. I can cook up a story on the spot, sure. But it's not structured. I once tried, and failed. The ideas come to me gradually after a while.
