Motivation, where art thou?

I've been seeing a lot of blog post lately where the author has been saying "I need motivation"

So, I asked my peeps on Facebook - "what drives you?" and I got the general answer that it was about the vision of the "end goal"

Then I thought about what drives me. First, let me say that I have been pretty lazy since I finished the 1st draft of my book. I haven't been writing. (Except on here, of course, but I don't feel like that counts.) Because of this I feel like I'm losing the skills I was just starting to gain when I came to the end of my book.

I had a vision. I wanted to finish my book. I've been taking time off from it because it's better to go back to the book with fresh eyes. In that process I lost motivation, because, I gave up my schedule. The problem is, I love the book I wrote. I know I have a ton of editing to do, but that's the story in my head right now, and it won't leave.

Therefore, I've come to a decision. It's three days early, but I'm going to start editing now. For the sake of motivation.
