... b/c they're so important.

So you try too hard to get them just ever so right and as a result they become even more difficult; if they were even difficult to begin with.

They may be as obvious as other sections you've written in your novel and have only become difficult b/c you're making them so danged so by trying too hard b/c you feel you have to since so much is at stake.

All this just occurred to me. Was wondering if it has to anyone else while struggling like the dickens?

(One of the difficulties that arises is over-writing scenes: in an effort to (really!) make them have impact. And you needn't, since the action is more or less enough as is.)

Hope this is a worthwhile question.

Apologies in advance, if not.
