I used to think writing a novel was the hardest thing in the world. I was wrong. Finishing the novel was the hardest part. After three years, the beast was finally done.
Then I began the query and thought it was even harder than writing a novel. After six months and 102 versions, (really) I have a query I actually think says what I want it to, so now I am working on the synopsis.
Now I am telling you that the synopsis is the hardest thing to write. How in the world am I supposed to cram 80,000 really important necessary words into 5, 3 or 1 page as different agencies request? It's like cutting off parts of my favorite hand made quilt.
What's your take on the writing process? Which do you find the toughest or most enjoyable?
