Could you please let me know which sentence is better (more correct)?
1) C'est difficile à croire qu'il est
déjà le mois d'octobre
2) .....que nous avons déjà le mois...
3) ..que nous écrivons déjà le mois...
Merci beaucoup de votre aide.

Actually I would have said that whether you use "il est difficile..." or "c'est difficile" you are using an impersonal expression that states your opinion, and does not necessarily fact. Therefore I would have used the Present Subjunctive in all those cases.
Otherwise it would be #1.

So, would it be:
"Il est difficile de croire qu'il soit
déjà le mois d'octobre"?
But is it not a fact, that it is already October? I don't understand why it would just be a personal opinion.
Thank you in advance for your help and explanation.

If you state it as fact, #1.
