Motivating Writing at Home

What motivates you to write at home?  I have been trying different things.  My latest as a poet is exploring different forms, like the Seguidilla. This is a verse form from Spain of seven syllable counted lines  (7,5,7,5,5, 7 5.) Between the second and the fourth there’s a rhyme and the fifth and the seventh. Here’s my attempt at a Seguidilla: 



Two oak trees bare their branches (7)


Coupled by their height           (5)


ice on a lakefront ripples (7)


Clouds capture moonlight  (5)


With glittering gems (5)


Leafless solitary stems (7)


I wander alone (5)
