Most Annoying Things When Writing a Story

Seiran
I've experienced most of these problems when writing stories and these problems are just plain annoying when some of these things on list happen to me.

The Top Ten

1 Writer's Block

I'm suffering from writers block and I don't know what to do! WHen I ask for help everyone says 'make a character die' but a character just died and I like the characters I created. PLEASE. HELP. ME. - AnonymousChick

My writer's block lasts days, sometimes weeks. I love to write, but I always get writer's block in the middle of a story, and it's really frustrating. - Elric-san

Writers block only last for as long as you want it to. You will always find a way out of it if you're dedicated enough. - Britgirl

I hate this when this happens to me. Writer's Block sucks ass. - Seiran

2 Lack of Inspiration

There is never a lack of inspiration. It's literally everywhere! You just have to look for it. - Britgirl

If you struggle with lack of inspiration or imagination, you only need to start looking at life differently. - PetSounds

I never run out of imagination when it comes to horror stories - bobbythebrony

3 Starting over when you (or someone) don't like the storyline

This happened to me a few times and it's always tiring whenever I do that. - Seiran

Gah! Hate this. I am my own worst critic and am forever writing, scrapping, rewriting and scrapping. Nothing ever seems to look right. - Britgirl

4 Someone ruins your work after working hard on it
5 Cancelling the story-in-progress

You have to know when the plot is working and when it isn't and being brave enough to let it go when it isn't, however heartbreaking it is. - Britgirl

6 Other ideas of a good story interfere with your current work
7 You leave the story behind and never work on it anymore
8 An idea you had was already used by someone else

The most irritating thing a writer encounters. - Elric-san

9 You feel tired and stressed after hours, days, or months working on it

"There is nothing to writing. You just sit down at a typewriter and bleed." -- Falsely attributed to Ernest Hemingway, but still accurate. - PetSounds

10 Lose interest in making the story
