Toughest Part of Being A Writer

As a writer, there are many misconceptions. In every piece we compose, people think we are simply expressing our thoughts and emotions. But they do not know the stories behind the tapping of keyboards and movement of pens. There are words left unsaid and stories untold behind the creative pieces we offer to our readers.

It may be a long journey of being a writer, and some will tag you as a good content creator throughout the years. But deep down, you will feel and say that there are most challenging parts of being a writer too. Everyone will admire the flow of the articles you publish but not question the process of how you got it done.

In this article I wrote for today, I would like to speak out about the most challenging parts of being a writer. Most of you will agree with me and even add some. Maybe you also experienced the same thing. In almost two years here on this platform, I have observed a few challenges of being a content creator. Check them out below.

Losing the motivation to write

There are days when I could not feel a writer's persona within me. In this case, I know I am losing the motivation to write, maybe for a day and sometimes a week. And I cannot blame myself for that. I am just a human being who experiences dull days.

As a writer, you will bring out the best compositions if you have the motivation to do it. And sometimes, losing the inspiration to write is one of the challenges.

Lack of ideas and topics

Not everyone has the talent of having many ideas and topics in their heads. Yes, a writer should have a creative mind, but sometimes we also experience a lack of ideas.

Some users here will agree that this is also a challenge. Sometimes we end up closing our laptops and stop writing for a while because of what we call "mental block." I can understand you, and we are experiencing the same thing.

Having distractions

Writers need enough concentration can compose good content. And having distractions can only complicate things for us.

Sometimes the noisy surroundings, negative thoughts, and other errands required to do can distract us. It will cause us to lose concentration on the message of the content we want to share.

We are not receiving any appreciation.

Every writer needs appreciation, and sometimes not receiving any is a challenge too. We have negative thoughts such as we are not good enough. Maybe there are days that people will not read your content, but it is normal.

We cannot force everyone to support the things we write. And it is okay not to receive any appreciation as long as you appreciate yourself. Plus, some people also believe in you.

Lack of self-confidence

We sometimes compare the quality of our content to other writers. Sometimes we lack self-confidence and think twice before sharing what we composed. It is one of the problems that I know most of you know.

Sometimes we will be on someone else's feed and compare our contents. And it is happening everywhere but make sure to do it to improve your compositions and not to look down on yourself as a writer.

So, that's it. You may be familiar with the things that I mentioned above. But if you want to share and add ideas, the comment section is open for everyone.

Right now I am currently passing through the problem of not having topics and ideas to write. Some times I do have a lot of ideas and I go through them one at a time, but some other times I just hit a block and nothing comes to mind when I settle down to write. My usual trick is to get inspiration from online blogs and social media, music also help

As a writer myself, undergoing such existing dilemmas was more than enough to make a halt with this hobby. Honestly, the lack of motivation really hits hard - having so makes writing an impossible task to do. However, I hope that we can still find the delight to write no matter what.

I would agree with everything that you said, sometimes if no one wants to read our work we feel like our efforts isn't enough to catch an attention of a reader's, and so we lose confidence.

As a writer who overthinks a lot, sobrang helpful talaga ng assurance or validation from my readers; kung maganda ba yung pagkakasulat or ewan hahaha. This is my daily struggle kaya siguro last time I tend to be unmotivated. Pero ngayon I am trying to work things out :))

Lack of ideas/topic is really challenging for me everytime I want to write an article. Then may instance din na kahit meron naman akong ideas in mind, hindi naman ako makaisip ng supporting details to come up with a sensible article. Buti nalang talaga minsan, nakakaraos. hahaha

If I write something my main priority is that it reaches to most of the people they read it and give their views because without that I won't be knowing about my mistakes or the thoughts of other's brain. Which writers welcome everytime.

That's true. Writers are composing their pieces to reach out to their readers and start an engagement to them. That is how it works.

Everything here happens to me. The hardest one is the lack of motivation. Sometimes I may not be able to write and I have in mind that I must write. And that's why not all my posts are interesting. It happens to me a lot of time.

I truly can relate with it

Sometimes i lose motivation to write but good thing it's too rare when i lack topics though i always write being distracted by voices or mom calling to do this or that it's an everyday thing and a bit used to with it now

I always have that negative thought of not being a good writer but than i calm myself saying i tried and will keep trying

Or also i lack self - conference a lot like after publishing always feel like i did a mistake or something terribly wrong

But it's a part of our journey we keep learning and never stop writing.
