Express Yourself: Writer Woes
Today's Express Yourself is (edit): What is the most frustrating/satisfying thing about being a writer? Not a writer, then pertain this question to whatever you'd like.
Thanks to Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests for this weekly bloghop.
I actually just tweeted about this one as I was revising my WIP. One of my writer woes is probably a pantser issue: where is this story going?
As a pantser, I tend to know how my stories start and what the end will be. The middle and connections between come whenever they feel like it. I spent a LONG time trying to figure out why the antagonist in my story is coming for my protag, and when it finally hit, things came together so well.
Another woe is after all of this work I'm doing, will anyone see it? I just want people to see the vision as I envisioned it, understand it, and appreciate it. So I'm going to keep working at it so that this is THAT story.
