@Kaji I think you misunderstood what the OP was asking. I've tried to reword the question using my interpretation... I hope I'm correct.

comment Is it hard to write Japanese?
I think most answers to this will be opinion-based, unless there is a study out there about saying sentences to Japanese speakers and English speakers and timing how long it takes them to transcribe them by hand.

comment Using declarative だ with negative i-adjectives
Since you are a complete beginner, this is probably not relevant to you, but to anyone else who may come across this question, it is worth mentioning that there are some dialects which allow だ after i-adjectives, such as 遠州弁 or 三河弁.
