Writing is on essential part of the academic life. Students need to compose essays, write letter, take tests, etc. but mastering their skill is not easy, especially if students are learning to write in a second language such as English. Lagan (1987) and Gunning (1998) agreed that writing is difficult when they stated that writing is both more complex and more abstract than talk, it is evidently true that writing poses a number of problems to the students, as it is a skill that is difficult to master. It is believed that writing demands a great deal of skills and conventions such as writing readiness and grammatical rules for the students to become proficient and effective writers. Students need to pay attention to grammar, spelling, vocabulary, etc. which may devote students’attention from the content of what they went to express. In fact, students often feel frustrated when they attempt to write their ideas in English. We want to examine the cause of students frustration when carry out writing tasks. In order to do this, we will argue the importance of writing because it is a big part of every high scholar’s life. In fact, students need to write to their ideas, text their friends, write letters, but students need to improve writing skill and they have to take care of this, because is not just putting pen to paper or writing down ideas but it is how these ideas are presented or expressed effectively. This highly demanding process of writing requires a number of skills and conventions like organization in the development of ideas and information; a high degree of accuracy in choosing the right words so that there is no ambiguity of meaning and also the right use of complex grammatical devices to focus and emphasize ideas. Besides, writing demands the writer to have careful choice of vocabulary and understand grammatical patterns and to be able to write sentence structures that is appropriate to the subject matter. Secondly, focus our attention on English teachers because they too face great challenge to teach these skills and conventions as students may at times find them confusing and difficult to understand and write effective writing in English. And finally, it is important to pay attention to methodology and techniques that English teachers are taking in account when they plan the lesson, teachers need to have an effective methodology of developing a second language in our learners, because English teaching process is demanding and it requires an enormous dedication and sacrifice.
