    Personally, I find writing philosophical justifications ... the most tedious bit of writing.

    I write about random stuff. But i guess, it would be better if you choose to write the things regarding your interest. That would be easier, i guess

    I find that writing about myself and my life experiences the most difficult. I do not find my life overly exciting, which is probably why I am so drawn to fiction.

    This is a very good question, in my opinion.

    I feel that way because every subject I decide to tackle is the toughest subject for me to write about.

    I mostly write about social, economic and political issues and even though those are the subjects I am the most familiar with, each piece I write is a very tough go for me.

    Now that I think about it, the only subject that is easy for me to write about is ... well, I just don't know. I have trouble writing everything, even grocery lists.

    the truth. fiction is so much easier. while it is often based on reality or inspired by it, it is not strictly so. notice how I didn't capitalize my sentences? I don't know why I did that this time. lol.

    The social stigmas surrounding mental health. Not because I can't come up with anything to write, but because I have personally dealt with it in my life and there is so much to write about it that I am passionate about.

    Personally, I think the hardest stuff for me to write about is fiction. I went to school and got a degree in writing and, even through all that time, I still find fiction the hardest thing to write. It's not writing it down that is the hard part, it's getting to a point to where I actually enjoy it myself. If that makes sense. I don't want to write something that I'm going to be bored with later on, I want to write something that I can let sit for a month or so and then come back to edit it and still be entertained.

    For me this is tough. I can pump out a review (which is just my opinion) quickly when i get to actually sit down and write, and be satisfied instantly, but for me fiction is rough. Poetry is another thing that takes me forever to get too. I am definitely not the best poet nor do I think that I'm a very good one, but that something else that takes me forever to actually "finish" because even after months of being content with what I have, I still pick at the poem or story and play with it.

    The writing process is never complete lol.
