The answer to that is world-building. It is by far the most difficult scenes for me to write and usually cause a headache when I’m done with them. But it’s not even the beginning stages that I find hard. The hardest scene I’ve ever written is in my upcoming release First and Last, the final Magical Sword book.
Without getting into stuff that will spoil it, I go into how the Otherworld and Underworld were created in this book to finish off Nexi’s journeys. Let me just tell you it was exhausting. That one chapter took me over three days to write while I weaved all the history into the story.
But the end result was one seriously fantastic back-story. I couldn’t have been happier with how it all turned out, so the sweat over it was worth it. Like I said, they are tough for me and I usually do not enjoy any minute of it. Creating worlds, history from nothing more than your imagination is a very tough thing to do.
I suppose, only time will tell if my effort, curse words at the computer, hours spent thinking it over, were worth it. With the release coming soon...I can’t deny I’m excited to see what the reaction will be to this story.
