How do I make it easier and less boring? I love writing and it entertains me most of the time but whenever I write seriously, it becomes difficult! Any tips?

    What are your interests? If you write about something you know a lot about, then your character could also have this interest. Read some psychology articles so that you know what traits a psychopathic personality has. Incorporate the interest into why he or she wants to commit their deeds.
    Good writing.

    Cycle. There’s no need to keep your nose to the grindstone until you don’t have a face, that’s no good. Switch between interests, or other writing projects to keep things fresh, and come back to the story after you have some time to refresh.

    I myself have no less than three ambitious writings in the works, and countless crackwrites and fan-fictions as well. It keeps things interesting while also letting the creativity wheel stay turning.

    It is also important to know when to let a thing go. If your heart just isn’t in it full steam, you’re better off scrapping and finding your better angle elsewhere. Writing is an art of itself, don’t turn what you love into what you hate.

    I would dive into the stories that inspired you the most to take on this endeavor. “Going back to your roots” in a matter of speaking. What scenes or plots rivet you? Reacquaint yourself with your favorite works and inspiration will begin to form. Sometimes visual is helpful. Watch something that thrilled you and that might get the creative juices flowing.

    It shouldn’t be hard, maybe writing is not for you. But if you want to, you just don’t need to give up. That is all.
