    My Toughest Book
    Time: 15:00 – 16:00
    Room: Burroughs

    What makes a book difficult to write, or difficult to write well? Is ignorance of the subject matter a barrier? Is knowing too much? We’re always told to “write what you know,” but can this be a trap? How about troubles with plot, character, dialog, or pacing? Our panel of authors recall which of their works had the most arduous gestation.

    Panelists: Brandon Sanderson, Charles Stross, Walter Jon Williams, Darlene Marshall, Allen M. Steele.
