What annoys me most about the industry is when you have to take a piece to several more drafts than you envisaged or budgeted and made time for. The funds have usually dried up by this stage and your other projects tend to mount up, therefore causing a knock on effect which drives you mental. It would be brilliant to be paid more research dosh! And the research didn't eat into the time given to write the first draft. Also getting into TV development hell is very unfair, and often not really understood by us mere writers.
