Q: What is the hardest part of writing for you?
A: Re-writing, revising, and editing! It is not only difficult to find the time needed for a re-write, but it can be difficult to remain inspired when you’re sweating over a piece of writing and struggling to find the right words to convey the concept you have in your head. It is the “easy” part of writing— the concept and character— that forces me to continue with a piece, no matter how exhausted I am. Without that character encouraging me, I would probably not write at all.
