The amount of time I've spent trying to write one paragraph because the character didn't answer the phone in the right way...
Bahahaha!!! This is so true! Ugh... the tiniest little bit of romance in a scene causes this for me. It'll take me a day to squeeze out a single paragraph, maybe even a couple of sentences. And exposition on setting or, God help me, transition paragraphs! Those are the worst. I HATE writing transitions and setting/ambiance things. What to include? How much is too much? Why can't I envision this place and a fitting mood? How to make this scene flow into the next one so I can get to the important stuff?
(This is just going to turn into a Rothfuss hate thread if I get my way LOL)
Omigosh, I totally missed this all those months ago. "Doors of Stone"? That's what Book 3 will be called? IF IT'S EVER WRITTEN!!!! I have looked for any info on this hypothetical Book 3 and found nothing. Where the heck did you learn the title? Gimme gimme gimme info.
Aaaaand this one... Given how much research I've had to do on the Middle East and Islam, I'm having to fight fears that I've been added to the FBI watch list. At first I was terrified to look up prayer times and prayer postures, for goodness' sake, for fear dudes in suits would show up at my door. Now I'm like, Meh, whatever clicky clicky all the links. I guess I should be rejoicing that I'm not researching for a murder mystery... "The easiest way to poison one's spouse"... Yeah, just for a novel. You gotta believe me, judge.
