Damn, it's hard.
Really, really hard.
Why haven't you given up?
I like hard.
Harder the better.
Pile it on.
Some mornings I wake up with a raging write on.
I do. Everytime I try to write a novel.
An optimist would say in that case, I haven't given up, otherwise I wouldn't keep trying.
But then my glass has always been empty.
Umm.. Haha. I don't really understand what exactly the point of this is- to motivate us? or?
So.. just to answer- Why haven't I given up?
Because I will die some day- any time any day- and I want to write something down before I die. xD
I don't care if people read it- or if people don't read it. If it's bad or if it's good.
But at least I have written it and have put it there. It is to tell a story to myself and by happy about it. xD
It's like... Things I want to do before I die.
Same goes for my art as well.
Anyways- writing is easy- you can write one crap after another and it's stil called writing.
But anything that you want to create with your heart in it (sorry for being cheesy) will always difficult in a way that it requires effort.
I don't think anything is easy if you really, truly, care about it. Just my thought. xD
I write each morning beginning at 5 a.m. But, then, I'm lucky -- I'm retired and on disability. The bad news is, I can't walk -- but the good news is, I can sit in a recliner and tap out as many as thirty pages in a morning on my Kindle Fire. I transfer the saved files to my PC before rolling them into the finished book in Word. Then, I upload the file to Kindle Direct Publishing. I've published two novels and one novella, plus two nonfiction book this way. I dunno -- seems like writing on the Kindle Fire is a lot like texting and the words seem to flow. Try it, you might like it better than staring at a keyboard, which intimidates me . . . Good luck!
I like to bleed.
Do some flashpieces. Build your confidence. Writing is 80% percent editing ( that's a b.s. percentage I just made it up. But it might be accurate. )
Climbing a mountain is hard. Now writing a short story about a man climbing a mountain - definitely easier. More comfortable too.
I tried to give it up but I gave up on giving it up.
I haven't given up because while it is hard work, it isn't hard for me to write. I enjoy it and I just get better the more I do it.
But in general, yes writing well is a bloody lot harder than most people think.
You should consider writing screenplays for "The Office"
Because it's not hard for me. It just flows. Sure I have to fix a few things here and there but overall [for me] there is nothing hard about it.
Same here. The only hard thing for me is actually to end something I've begun...
Writing isn't hard for me. Plotting is...
Anyway, why haven't I given up? I think after you've put so much effort into a novel, it's just hard to give up cus giving up would mean all that work previously was wasted. That, and I'm just really, really stubborn. But then again I think you've gotta be pretty stubborn to finish a novel in the first place
