    Composing isn’t unreasonably basic. To get words together is its very own craft.

    Everyone can write, but not everyone can write a meaningful message. We need face the fact that it is indeed hard to be a writer.

    I personally has never thought writing is easy not if you wanted a quality work afterwards. It takes a lot of practice and consistency to see your work improve

    I agree. As a writer myself I have yet to perfect the craft but I hope I Could. Anyway not anyone can write but a writer can come from anywhere.

    Writing is not that simple. To get words together is an art of its own.

    I’ve worked in a publishing company before and dealt with authors about their book and manuscripts. Even writers who have already publsihed a book have challenges.

    From an outsider’s point of view, one may actually think writing is easy. However, one can only appreciate how difficult it is once they try to do it themselves.

    Every writer can relate to this. The sheer amount of work it takes to write a masterpiece tells it all.

    The people who claim writing is easy are ignorant. I always experience writer’s block whenever I try to write.

    Some are born as good writers and for some it takes years of practice. The key is knowing which side of this divide one falls.

    Sitting to put your thoughts and ideals down is not some thing easy. Writing things down is one thing I find difficult to do.

    I agree, that rule works for many things in life, the fact that something looks eassy doesn’t make it eassy at all.

    No, no… Never claim that writing is easy! You must have a lot of knowledge if you want to write something that is useful for many people or at least you must have a great imagination to be able to make interesting stories.

    Not everyone can express their emotions through writing. If it’s easy, then we will all be writers.
