You know, filtering through blogs today I came across this one over at the Bookshelf Muse.
Just reading through the comments, I saw someone saying how character creation is the 'bane of her existence' and thought to myself, "What? No way!"
Character creation is one of my absolute favorite things about writing! I love it with a capital L-O-V-E! I don't know why. Every character of mine has different traits, different quirks and views on life. They have such unique, individual personalities, it is hard to NOT love them. At least for me.
But character creation is not the only aspect of writing that I enjoy. I enjoy all of it except editing. Ha! Yeah, editing is the bane of my existence. I tend to ramble on and to tighten my story and remove words tends to be heartbreaking. Not only that, the story is written! It's done, it is out of my system, so why do I have to go back to edit and revise it? Well of course I *know* why... I just don't wanna do it. But I have to, I suppose. Ok, so no supposing about it. :D
What is your favorite part of writing? What is your most hated?
