A question for Gwen Whiting

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

A: The hardest part of writing for me is often knowing when to stop. It’s very easy to get caught up, not only when writing in the world that I’ve created, but also when building the world itself. I enjoy research more than I probably should, and often look around at ideas, events, and people of the past when brainstorming short stories. It interests me to take what was and instead imagine what could have been.
