(I hope this is in the right discussion area, first time I created a thread here)
So like the title says, what’s the easiest and most difficult thing for you to write?
Easiest to write for me are probably villains or “dark gray” characters.
The most difficult thing to write would be religion of any kind and yes that includes villainous demon worshipping, baby eating cults as well. For whatever reason I tend to start getting unmotivated and end up slogging through any story branch where I have a protagonist involved as a member of any religion.
(If the hero is fighting said demon worshipping, baby eating cult then it’s a lot easier because in that case the religion is just there as one of the obstacles for him to overcome.)
Oddly I find when I do write such story-lines, they tend to branch a lot more. Not sure if it’s because I’m over thinking everything because it isn’t an area I’m as enthusiastic about writing or because I’m putting forth more of an effort to make sure I don’t gloss over anything since even if its not my favorite thing to write, I don’t want to slack off on it.
Of course one could say “Why not avoid writing religion and make it easy on yourself?” Well I do for the most part and it doesn’t usually play a big role in most stories, but hey sometimes when you’re writing, the story demands that it take you on a different path and when that happens you’ve got to do it!
