Top 5 Things I Hate About Writing.
2. Outlining gives me hives.
3. Synopsis equals the antichrist. Try summarizing a 460 page book into 2 pages while telling the entire plot and giving enough detail that someone knows what the book is about but only having approximately a 1000 words to do so. Then getting halfway through and realizing you can’t summarize the plot because your plot is ALL OVER THIS PLACE. Le sigh.
4. Writing the query/blurb, which is like writing the synopsis but not giving away the entire story, but making it interesting enough that someone in the world wants to read but having only 150-250 words to do so. Yikes.
5. Proofing. I just suck at the whole proofing stage.
