The Hardest Part of Novel Writing

For me, the hardest part of writing a novel is when I come to a part where I’m not really sure what needs to happen next. For the most part I know where it’s going, and I have notes on lots of scenes that I know have to be there. These scenes are easy and fun to write. It’s those in-between scenes, getting from point A to B, where I have problems.

Lots of writing, erasing, writing again, until I find my path.

That’s the real work. Finding the path.

Okay … back to work!
