I've found myself feeling very unmotivated to write lately, despite telling myself to do so. Sometimes I think it's the feeling of starting at the beginning is what does that. And by beginning, I mean in the beginning of the middle or the beginning of the end. So I've found a way to ensure that I never start at the beginning. I found myself doing this accidentally. I began writing a summary of my idea and then elaborated it. I elaborated it further and further into segments, and these segments began to break down into plot-points, which broke even further into individual scenes. Oh well if this 'technique' has a name already; I've never heard of it, and it is really helping me. Perhaps it can help any of you struggling to keep yourself writing at all.
