This year flew at
a supersonic speed, making everything a gigantic blur. This year I wrote so
many picture books that I surprised myself. I also rewrote a middle grade
novel, revised a love story and edited a few chapter books. I exercised like a
maniac. I also made some wonderful publishing connections, had some amazing
feedback from agents. But my reading suffered a lot. I guess I am no superwoman
who can do everything!
With the end of
2021 comes the last IWSG of the year. IWSG was started by the amazing Alex J Cavanaugh. Alex is the
author of Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and
Dragon of the Stars. Do visit the IWSG website for more information on this
wonderful group and some writing related posts.
1 question – In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you?
stresses me about my writing is when I get stuck with a difficult scene or in a
sticky plot hole. I also get stressed wondering whether the readers will like
what I have written. Before the readers I start worrying whether the editor I
have submitted to, will like what I have written. I’m delighted when the story
shapes up beautifully and make an emotional connection with the readers and
when the readers gush over my book/s.
What are your
writing stresses and delights?
