This week’s topic is The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Written. Hmmm. Lately, everything has been hard, but that’s only because of outside reasons. The writing itself isn’t difficult; it’s the fitting it in among everything else, so that’s not an adequate answer to the topic. Don’t worry, I’ve got the answer.
The hardest thing I’ve ever written was The Deepest Cut.
It’s the first book in my new adult series, Albion’s Circle. I love the characters in this series. Seriously, I can’t even express how much I love them and how their story sucked me in. But the book was soooooo difficult to write. For several reasons. It was the first new adult book I’ve written. It was also the first time I was writing in first person. And I definitly let those things get all up in my head. Because that’s what I dooooo. 🙂
Beyond that, there were scenes that were emotionally draining to write. Scenes with the two main characters – Merlin and Anna – in particular. They are probably two of the most complex characters I’ve ever written. I guess that comes from being reborn and living several lives over more than a thousand years. LOL
So, there you go – the hardest thing I’ve ever written. So far. 🙂
