This week’s topic is:

‘What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?’

I’ve read my fellow writers’ blogs on this subject, and they talk about planning, grammar and punctuation, blurbs, marketing and titles.  However, I have a different issue which grips me every time:

What the hell to write about in the first place!

Yes, it’s the book’s subject matter that I find most difficult.  As soon as I have an idea in my head then I can tap away for hours, but it can be many months before inspiration hits.  I try and pick subjects that not many other people have written about, and so I listen to news items and have found a few topics that way.

I also write about what I know or have personally experienced.  I mix it all in with a fictional plot, and let the reader decide what’s true and what isn’t.   However, I think I’m all written out for the moment, and so I’m looking for a new subject.  Answers in the comments box below please!
