3 Your frustration builds up
4 You forget your story
5 You get stressed when writing

I always stress when I can't think of what to write next, or I get stuck on something.

6 You forget to save a draft

I deleted mine :(

7 You fear what others think about your story

I mainly fear what I'll think of it. I am my own worst critic. If I don't like what I write, how can I expect other people to? - Britgirl

Main reason why I only write privately. The only things I write for the public are YouTube comments and reviews. - Mcgillacuddy

All the time! Whenever I post a chapter of my story to Wattpad, I always fear of what people will think about it. I don't whether they like it or hate it. - Pegasister12

9 Your back starts hurting
10 Your plotline becomes too confusing or has plot-holes

11 Your characters become too hard to work with

Your characters actually tell YOU what their role is in the story. It's up to the author to listen to them. - Britgirl

12 You get trolled

Don't let this happen... They are everywhere. Be careful.
