A question for Cameron Bertron

A question for Cameron Bertron

Q: What is the hardest part about writing for you?

A: Usually, my stories start with a single image or emotion which I want to capture. After that image occurs, everything else is the hard part. Recently, what I’ve been finding the most difficult are scene transitions and set-up scenes. I know exactly what I’m about to say, but I can’t set up the scene right to say it. Those set-up scenes take much more of my time than the climatic ones. The hardest part of writing will always change depending on the story and my skills as I acquire them. But for now, I’m wrestling with getting characters into the right place at the right time.
