Why Writing Is Hard

Writing is hard, tough, challenging. Whatever adjective you want to use. 

It isn’t easy for many reasons.

Words don’t write themselves. You have to think of them. Then you need to string words together to form coherent sentences before arranging what you’ve written into cohesive paragraphs.

More often than not, the creative process is a difficult one. Then again, you can say the same about life.

Getting published takes time. Try to be patient.

You don’t always like what you write. That’s what editing is for.

You also aren’t inspired all day, every day. You might not feel motivated either. Sometimes you just have to push through.

But despite everything, writing is worth it.

I love putting pen to paper. I love creating new characters and worlds. I love telling stories as much as I do sharing them.

I don’t know how to explain how I feel when I’m in the midst of writing. Except to say nothing else compares.
