For true die hard book lovers you know what it's like to lose yourself in a book. You fall so deep into the story that you become a part of it.
Well for me, I don't know about other writers but I will be willing to bet it's the same, you fall even deeper into the story. For a time everyone in your story becomes almost real. I become lost in my stories.
So what is it I hate. Well the editing part isn't a lot of fun but even more than that is the last read you have to do before you let it go or send it back to be edited again. The last is usually because you've changed something major and it has to be edited again.
I look forward to being able to putting a couple of years between writing the book and reading it. To be able to sit down and read your book with almost a fresh mind and fresh eyes. I so look forward to that but damn it I hate the wait. That is what I hate the most. I think I've mentioned before how much I hate to wait, well now I have to wait a really long time to be able to read my book just for the sake of reading a book.
I'm going to do something that I wonder if other writers do. I'm going to be totally honest about something. Ask me who my favorite author is and I'm going to say me. Yes me. I'm my favorite. Will that change? Well I know of a couple of people that if they get that first book out I will probably like more but until then it's me.
