The top three things that drive me insane about writing. I shy away from saying hate because I had to work hard at coming up with the 3 things I disliked. Tomorrow I'll bring you the top 3 things I love about writing, but without further chatter, here are the things that drive me InSaNe!
3. Synopsis – I stink at writing synopsis. Figuring out what are the most
important aspects of the story that I need to focus on, is really difficult
for me. Probably because I think everything is important. I mean, let’s face
it, if it wasn’t important, I’d have cut it from the storyline right? LOL But, yeah,
I get why I need to compress the story. There are some details that can be left
out of a synopsis that do not affect the storyline at all. UGH! :-/
2. Blurbs – Did I say I “stink” at synopsis?
Well, I suck at blurbs because
condensing my book down to the important parts is just damn difficult. Even
worse than a synopsis because I’m trying to condense it down into about two
short paragraphs. Gah!
1. Temperamental muses – It’s frustrating when my muse decides to take a leave
of absence without any notice whatsoever. *throws a temper tantrum that’d make
a two-year-old proud* There should be a freaking rule in place that says under
penalty of severe lashings by the writer (that’s me), the muse must, abso-freaking-lutely must, schedule leave of absences to work
with MY timeframe. It would make life so much easier, right? :D
