I'm just curious what difficulties any of you may come up against when writing, either external or internal, and how you get over them (or not). Myself, I don't find it too hard to come up with ideas, my problem is finding the time to write. I have plenty of free time, but I also have a three-year old who never leaves me alone for more than a few minutes. And if I ask someone to watch her for me while I do some writing, I inevitably receive a weird look--no one in my family takes my writing seriously (and I can't afford a real babysitter!). That's another problem I guess. Even my "better half" says he believes in me, but he sometimes gets annoyed when I actually sit down on the computer and write, instead of doing something "useful." So that's my difficulty, I can't manage to steal enough time for myself. How I get over it? Well, I don't, really. That's why I've written so little. What about the rest of you?
