What do you think the hardest thing about writing is?
what do i think the hardest thing about writing, is the first line, and after i get that first line out of the way, my mind goes in different direction, and my inner person take over....
It Depends.....honesty can be one, (being honest with yourself) creativity or just having your idea be consist with whatever you are writing about. It can differ for everyone. It also depends on what you are focusing on writing about. Initially for me being honest was a huge stumbling block for me moving forward with my writing, monkey wrench whatever you want to call it.
For many writers the hardest thing is the ending! Especially for the writers of fiction, be it Action, Horror, Fantasy , Suspense , Drama or Science Fiction. Quite often we get caught up in the creative aspect and start writing up a storm with characters, plots and genres.
The various scenes and situations flash in our imaginations while the characters interact and tell the stories from their own views. Then after all the drama, action, suspense and build up we are faced with the final scene.
This can either make or break the body of work. Everything has lead up to the conclusion and it needs to tie up all the loose ends. It needs to make the reader happy that they invested all that time in reading your work.
If you've done it correctly then the audience is entertained and you are acclaimed a success! So yes the hardest part is the Ending! The End!

When writing a non- fic historical hub ; getting all your facts in order and what style and wording you want them presented in.
1. To begin is the hardest.
2. To finish is just as hard.
For me, the hardest thing about writing is the physical demands. I have chronic neck pain from a herniated disc. Sitting at the computer and writing can be agonizing. I keep telling the doctor, NOT writing is NOT an option!
I think it is linking paragraphs or sequences together in a way which makes the reader want to carry on reading. It's one thing to be able to write a good descriptive paragraph, and then to follow it with another one, maybe set in a different time or place, but it's quite another thing to join them together in a way which flows naturally and which encourages the reader to read on and on and on, page after page after page.
(This is probably why I find it easier to write short stories or articles than full blown novels!)
Sometimes I get bogged down in editing with punctuation and syntax. I overthink it and end up losing the enjoyment if I am not careful.
I think the hardest thing is going back to what you have written and edit it or "debug" it if you like. it requires a lot of discipline but at the same time its a required process if you want your articles to be top notch .
For me the hardest thing some days is thinking about something to write about that will be of interest to others.

What do you think is the hardest thing about being a boss/manager?I've been a supervisor for over 5 year. I found managing staffing levels one of the hardest things I've had to contend with. For those who are a supervisor or manager, what do you find is the hardest thing to contend with?
