Care to share?
Not getting enough time to actually sit down and do it. I'm always too busy doing other things like being on here (cleaning the house and looking after two children doesn't help either) and helping family and friends (not that I mind).
Yeah that about sums it up for me too, also getting writers block doesn't help much...
I would say that is what I hate the most, writers block...sends you insane..
My lack of concentration doesn't help. Although, I believe I've created a plot that is close to me and I'm determined to finish it.
I have to agree with Sayso - between house work, raising 3 kids, and full time job..oh can't forget spending time with husband.
It's sometimes hard to find the peace and quiet I need to actually sit down and get serious about my writing.
i hate it when i am not in the mood to write but i really want to. for me to write i have to be in a certain mood (normally sad) and if i try to write when i am not in that mood (sad) then i end up sitting and watching the computer screen. and then, when i have no access to a computer, i suddenly feel sad and want to write. lol. it is sooo annoying.
I've got to admit, if it wasn't for a bit of writers block last year, I wouldn't have dipped into poetry. Now I spend more time writing poems than I do stories.
My husband isn't too keen on me being sat up in bed writing when he wants the light turned out!
What frustrates me the most is the amount of sheer physical labor it takes to get the words onto the page. The vast numbers of keystrokes of pencil scratches it takes to get the stuff in my head to be stuff in the file; and the hours that disappear while I'm trying to pour my brain out through my fingers.
But I can't say that I *hate* it: I don't really hate anything about writing.
(Except losing a file. That I hate.)

My lack of determination, and how whenever I am really positively itching to write, I'm away from my computer, where I keep all my stories.
Not being able to do so.
What do you hate most about writing?
nada/niente/nothing!... it's as natural to me as breathing, so what's to hate?
I don't HATE anything about writing. But I don't like it when I know the story line but can't find a good way to write it out in words. You know what I mean? :redface:
The actual writing part. If I could just put my thoughts onto the paper it would be so much easier.
Must get back to working on my mind-paper machine.
Mind-Paper! That's what I need too, Domo!
(Quick, back into the lab with you!)
Where do I send my order to? Can you also design a censorship device too? My mind can be filthy sometimes, it's embarrassing!
People always say they wish they could read the minds of teenagers.
Trust me, you don't. It's sex every five seconds.
I don't actually hate anything about writing... my hates are more to do with not writing. Writer's block, not having the time etc
