The little creature on the bed had large, bat-like ears and bulging green eyes the size of tennis balls. Harry knew instantly that this was what had been watching him out of the garden hedge that morning.

Writing Problems For Writers.

1:
Picking a name for your characters.
2:
Choosing the first sentence of your book.
3:
Figuring out your character's internal struggle.
4:
Finding out how to get your story from point A to point B.
5:
Finally sitting down to write the story.
6:
Fighting the urge to just walk away.
7:
Using the, "I'm reading because I'm learning about the genre," excuse, when you just want to procrastinate. Likewise, this goes with web surfing instead of writing.
8:
Staring at a blank document on your laptop, or blank page in a notebook, wondering when inspiration will hit you again.
9:
Thinking that this is the best thing you'll ever write, then feeling like it's too much pressure a hundred words in.
10:
Feeling like you could write thousands of words for hours, but then sit down and wonder what the hell you were thinking.
11:
Choosing a title for your book.
12:
Actually editing your first draft.
13:
Making excuses as to why you haven't edited that first book yet.
14:
Skipping days, while trying to think of a way to overcome your writer's block.
15:
Being all mysterious when people ask to read your work.
16:
Being paranoid when you're having the first draft printed--I hope the employees don't read my work.
17:
Drinking way too many caffeinated drinks, then not sleeping all night.
18:
Editing while you write.
19:
Being a writing slut and writing another book right after you've finished one book.
20:
Having way too many unfinished ideas saved on your computer and/or in your journal.
