I consider writing the darn thing to be the hardest part of writing anything be it book, short story, article, etc.
Editing can be difficult, yes, but more in a time-consuming and sometimes boring sort of way. I think I may be alone when I say I find editing to be enjoyable at times.
Then there’s the dreaded query and synopsis. Those are super difficult and stressful but, seeing as you already have the MS written and you just have to summarize it, it’s not as bad as it could be. Mostly just stressful.
No, finishing the project (in this case, a MS) is the hardest part. That’s the part that takes months or years. The rest can take days and weeks. Whoopdie doo.
I am announcing that I have finished writing my MS, Night’s Treasure.

What do you consider to be the hardest part of a writing project?
