I read somewhere recently that writing is like the process of distillation, and it's certainly true for me. No matter how clear I think I am in the beginning, I need to write . . . and write . . . and write again until things become clearer and everything crystallises. I can't even tell you how many times I've written some scenes, trying to get everything to hang together just so.
I tell you, if anyone ever says this writing lark is easy, they'd better get out of the way of my boxing gloves!
What irksome things make you want to don your virtual boxing gloves, writing or otherwise? Not that I condone violence, of course... :)
