This week's question is: What is the most frustrating/satisfying thing about being a writer?
For me, the most frustrating thing about being a writer is writer's block. No matter how often you write or how creative you are, you will run into instances where the words or ideas simply won't come. You may feel bad because you aren't producing quality writing, or you may be frustrated because you know you have a great idea for a story, but you simply can't seem to get it to work. That kind of creative blockage can be awful.
The most satisfying thing about being a writer is seeing a story come together. When I see my characters spring to life on the page and interact in a vibrant world that I created for them, I feel good about myself. As a writer, I want to tell stories that people care about. When I manage to do that, it's one of the best feelings in the world.
