[Writers on the Storm #3]

Writers on the Storm
Question #3

What is the hardest thing for you to write and how do you do it anyway?

Do epic battle scenes elude you? Do you have the sex scenes of Stephen King? Whatever it is, it takes a lot for you to do it right, but you keep on truckin’ anyway!

Here’s what the Stormwriters had to say:

Luna Ann Koenig, Author of Star Stolen
A  have to work really hard on character introductions in the beginning of stories and finding a natural way to get readers the info they need to know without it feeling forced. It’s something I’m always working on.

P.J. MacLayne, Author of Wolves’ Gambit
I’m a logical person, and emotions are the hardest thing for me to write. I do it by trying to find the little things that show emotion. No big displays, just a word or two, a shy smile, or a raised eyebrow, like what happens in day-to-day life. 

Elizabeth Mays, Poet, Host of #JustAddTea
My biggest obstacle for EVERYTHING is too much detail, but especially in fight scenes. It is super difficult for me to limit myself and I get bogged down and never finish. To overcome, I outline all fight scenes after watching them in my head.

Benjamin Pegg, AuthorĀ of
The Collective
The hardest scene would be battle or fight scenes. Keeping the pacing right, and the viewer engaged without packing too much detail is a challenge. However, I really enjoy writing them, because they stretch my mind and I can give new perspective on a situation.
