Emotions are hard, man. Like, for instance...
1. The irritation you feel when someone misuses the words "your" or "you're."
Come on, people.
My life is lie.
Dickens is boring. There, I said it!
4. The judgement you face when you have read every single snippet of writing that even remotely relates to your favorite book series.
5. The feeling of despair after your query is rejected for the 18th time.
And the 19th. And the 20th.
Nothing makes sense in my life anymore!
But I need it for research!
It's okay, Sam. You were probably just researching wizard dialects for your novel.
9. The awkward feeling of wanting someone to read/give feedback on your work, but don't know how to ask.
It's only 85,000 words!
10. Trying to explain wordcount in terms of pagecount to non-writing friends and suddenly understanding why the rest of the world wishes the U.S. would get on board with the metric system, already!
Congrats, Rose, you are officially part of the problem.
It sounded better in my head, okay?
12. The awful feeling of having to cut away your favorite scenes, or even entire characters...
Sorry, girl. They didn't advance the plot.
Yep, emotions are hard. But we trudge on, because we're writers, damn it.
And the win? The epic feeling of awesome that makes it all worth it?
Finally finishing that draft, of course.
Without even missing your deadline.
Well, dear writers, did I miss any? What are some of your struggles and wins?
