This post stems off of my post last week. Judging from the comments I received, the majority of us all have a book with which we are struggling. An important, meaningful story that we are driven to tell, and it seems to be the story that is the most difficult to write.
This led me to wondering about published authors. More to the point—famous, world-renowned, successful, published authors.
Did they ever struggle over one of their books? Did that book ever make it to print, or does it still beckon from the depths of a desk drawer? Or even, is there a successful author out there who wrote an AMAZING book—so amazing that nothing else he or she has written, before or since, can possibly compare? Or is there a great book out there written by an author who has never written anything else?
