What is the hardest writing-related thing you've ever done?
Coping with the daily ups and downs of writing is one thing, but sometimes there are really big things that are hard. Like having to rewrite an entire novel that you've already revised a few times. Or trying to cut out, say, 20,000 words from something that's too long.
I thnk my second hardest writing challenge was(is) struggling with the premise behind Novel #3, with 2 alternating POVs. Still not resolved, but hopefully I'll come up with a solution one day.
My first and hardest writing-related challenge? Putting my first, completed novel (The Toad's Kiss) in a drawer, after having no glimmer of interest at all to the many queries I sent out.
