Ought writing to be fun? I go back and forth on that.
Yes, it should be fun! It's not A JOB!!! If it's not fun for you, it won't be fun for the reader!
No, nothing good is easy! You have to work at it and get gratification from a job well done!
I will say what's really annoying are the people who intone, "If it's not fun for you, it won't be fun for the reader," which is a really mean and nasty thing to say.
What do you guys think? Fun or not? What if it's not fun-- can it still be good, imaginative, creative? What if it's fun-- can it still be organized, coherent, readable?
Or is writing fun and editing not?
