Dec. 1 question: In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you?
After many drafts and hiring a professional editor, those darn typos stress me to the max. And when I use precious time writing 10k - 30k on a story and then decide it's not working and scrap the entire thing. Ack! Also, when I feel the need to rework scenes to the point of exhaustion. There is a moment when I have to say enough is enough.
Delightful, is constructing a decent plot. Or when a smile has its way on my face while I'm rereading certain passages that I really like. And then I say to myself, "I wrote that!"
