  1. Writing is harder than it seems. For starters, writing is much more than words on a page. It is the way the words form a story and how they tell a story. You need a really good idea and yes writer’s block can happen. You have to learn to find joy in the characters you are developing. On way to deal with writer’s block is just write without thinking about it and then edit: a tip I learned in high school. As a college student, I have to write papers, which you easily can get stuck with writer’s block so it helps not to think about it and than later edit it.
