The mission for those of us who answer the questions, should we accept it, is to stay positive about our writing and ourselves, but to also be fair about our shortcomings.
1. Of the fic you’ve written, of which are you most proud?
2. Favourite tense
3. Favourite POV
4. What are some themes you love writing about?
5. What inspires you to write?
6. Thoughts on critique
7. Create a character on the spot... NOW!
8. Is there a character you love writing for the most? The least? Why?
9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?
12. Anything else that you want to know... (otherwise known as Fill in the Blank)
01) Me On My Way To You, Kara's Last Chance, maybe a couple others. Those are the ones that still give me feels when I reread them.
02) Past. Sometimes my smut comes to me in present, and sometimes I drift between tenses, depending on what's happening in the fic, but for the most part, I write in past tense.
03) Third person - sometimes close, sometimes not.
04) I love writing smut. I like the falling in love. I love the newness of characters discovering their feelings for each other.
05) Pictures, conversations, people asking 'what if', just whatever jumps into my head at any given time.
06) I like critique from someone when I've asked for it, though I'd probably welcome it from someone whose writing I admire. If a stranger's going to comment on my fic, I'd rather they tell me what worked for them, and if they're going to tell me what didn't work, I'd prefer they come up with something they did like, as well. But I've got thick skin, so if they're going to take me apart, have at it.
08) I love writing Kara. She comes easily to me. I know her inside and out - at least the Kara I write, I know her. There are so very many sides to her. I don't like writing Dee or Sharon/Athena - I don't like writing them because I don't really like the characters, so I can't get into their heads to write from their perspectives.
09) She went to take her shower, pondering how to pull something like this off. Just as she twisted the water off, the answer came to her: Oliver. They hadn’t seen as much of Oliver since they’d graduated and gotten their first jobs. Hells, they were lucky that so far, they’d still been posted to Caprica, and together. Whatever. She shook her head. Oliver would hide everything - he’d even know where she could get mistletoe and the right kind of rope, and he probably had plenty of wrapping paper. Maybe she could wrap it all and just leave one thing on the table a day. She wouldn’t get to see Karl’s face when he opened them, but she had a good imagination, and she’d get to reap the rewards when she came home every night.
10) Um...I'm technically good - grammar, spelling, punctuation. I think I'm pretty good at writing emotions. I think I write pretty good smut.
11) I'm not great at bringing in the ambiance, the atmosphere, the environment. It's one of the things about writing BSG that actually works in my favor - there are only a few "places" that BSG characters can be. I don't have to go into too much detail.12) I have no idea.
