When Did Writing Become Hard To Do?

When we go through more challenging and difficult times with our writing – those times when we find ourselves stuck, blocked, out of ideas – “fun” and “enjoyable” are some of the last words that come to mind to describe what we’re experiencing.

So here are 5 of the most common reasons why we lose the sense of fun and enjoyment in our creative writing, and how to start to get them back.

1. We expect too much too quickly.

2. We always start in the same place.

3. We always write to produce an “end product”.

4. We get stuck writing the same way over and over.

5. We’re afraid of messing up.

See if any of these things might be stealing your enjoyment and correct what you need to to get started writing again.
