I’ll tell you what it’s like to struggle writing down an idea. Sometimes, I feel like writing is a struggle, when it’s getting the words down that takes an effort. In this instance, I’m not referring to writing the rough draft of a novel, but getting ideas down on paper. Getting ideas down ends up as rough writing, but takes self-motivation and discipline. I usually find getting ideas down the least liked part of my writing, but enjoy writing the short stuff, like reviews. I guess some people love writing down ideas, and even sell them, but I’ll tell you what it’s like to struggle writing down an idea or getting down quite a few of them, as they occur in succession: An idea or ideas pops into my head, and I think, I don’t feel like writing it down. Of course, using a digital recorder may be easier to get the idea out, me thinks.
