Regret. As a writer, I known I deal with it on a regular basis. Should have written that chapter, should have tweaked that poem, should have completed that novel.
As writers, we have to set a lot of unrealistic standards for ourselves in order to meet the basic goals we have, and its those unrealistic standards that tend to lead us to regretting something that we either did or didn’t do in our writing. It can be a choice to kill off a character, or edit out a chunk of your story.
