  1. This is a terrific post, and I wholeheartedly agree. Writing is a difficult process, but it’s the struggle that makes the end result worth it, in my opinion. I rarely see this point of view, so I was really glad to read this.

    • Thank you!

      It’s nice to know that I’m not alone out there!

      It reminds me of the old saying: Nothing worthwhile comes easy. It’s especially true when it comes to writing.

      I hope you find other stuff on the site you are glad to read!

  2. That’s really interesting. I can’t say that I hate writing. What I hate is the anxiety I get before I write. That’s even more true of revision. I really hate the thought of revision, so much that I almost never actually get to revision itself. But once I do, I always enjoy it. Once I actually start writing or start revising, I love it. But get me the five minutes before I start, and yeah, a lot of times, I will say I hate it.

    • Wellllll…I don’t HATE writing. I may have overstated for effect, but the overall feeling is accurate.

      I’m with you in the revision hate though. When it comes to revising, I procrastinate at an olympic level.
