Worst Struggles for Writers

As a writer, I know there are lot's of things that could easily distract you from writing. Whether it's something you see or hear to something occupying your mind or even something completely stupid, we all face struggles as writers.

The Top Ten

1 Writer's Block

Tell me about it. I'm prone to writers block. But whenever it happens, I get my idea journal and just start writing anything. No matter how weird or crazy it may be. It gets the brain "moving" and ideas flowing. It helps for me, it may help for others as well. - Supernatural

Basically the worst enemy to a serious writer. It sucks when you want to write but you can't think of anything. It sucks even more when that happens nearly every time. - cjWriter1997

Brainstorming always or might take a quite long time... - Delgia2k

2 Lack of Concentration

This one sucks the most. If you have no concentration, then your basically screwed even if you have and idea or inspiration. - Coopetro

Brain! Just write! No, I don't care about that random guy jogging down the street, just write this one word. Please! - cjWriter1997

Oh, yes! Yes! I've thought of an awesome plot twist! *gets distracted* OK COME ON BRAIN COME ONNN! CONCENTRATE! CONCENTRATE! DON'T GET DISTRACTED! NOW WHAT WAS I THINKING? - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

3 Not Enough Time

50 pages to do in 50 minutes, a real struggle indeed. - cjWriter1997

4 Coming Up With Original Ideas
5 No Inspiration

Kind of similar to Writer's Block only this means you have no motivation to even write. - cjWriter1997

6 Occupied With Life

Sometimes us writers may have time to write but with all the things happening right at the moment it is not even a thought in our minds. - cjWriter1997

Uh, "writer? " That would be "WE writers." Also might want to introduce yourself to a handy little device called the comma. Just saying'.

7 Distractions

Following up to Lack of Concetration, things like T.V., video games, our phones or even other people seem more important at the moment. - cjWriter1997

8 Migraines

You know, those agonizing headaches that pretty much sucks for everyone? Yeah those. - cjWriter1997

9 Hunger

Must write, but want dinner...uggghh! - cjWriter1997

10 Hand Cramps

Oww cramp! No, must continue to write! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

The Contenders

11 Losing Your Soul
12 Ripping-off other writings

Well, copying off other people's books was a bad idea.
