Okay, writing meme yay because my life is like... ridiculously boring and I have nothing else to do. -sigh- So yeah, this looks like fun and I want to do it. That's it~

2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you're writing about fictional places)?
4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!
5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?
6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol' pen and paper?
7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?
8. What's your favorite genre to write? To read?

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts!

15. Midway question! Tell us about a writer you admire, whether professional or not!

17. Favorite protagonist and why!
18. Favorite antagonist and why!
19. Favorite minor that decided to shove himself into the spotlight and why!

23. How long does it usually take you to complete an entire story—from planning to writing to posting (if you post your work)?
24. How willing are you to kill your characters if the plot so demands it? What's the most interesting way you've killed someone?
25. Do any of your characters have pets? Tell us about them.
26. Let's talk art! Do you draw your characters? Do others draw them? Pick one of your OCs and post your favorite picture of him!
27. Along similar lines, do appearances play a big role in your stories? Tell us about them, or if not, how you go about designing your characters.
28. Have you ever written a character with physical or mental disabilities? Describe them, and if there's nothing major to speak of, tell us a few smaller ones.
29. How often do you think about writing? Ever come across something IRL that reminds you of your story/characters?
30. Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer/or about one of his/her characters!

Day One

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you've worked with and why.

Out of all the stories that I've started and never finished, I'd have to say that my favorite is the one that I just call "The Story". Sarah and I are busting our butts on this one, which has all the things that I like in a story--action and adventure, a journey, magic, kids who have no idea what they're doing but try to do it anyway, some torture, and lots of strong friendship bonds!

A lot of you might know of this, but I don't share it with too many people. Basically, it's an alternate universe and these three kids with completely conflicting goals go off to rescue the princess--well, that's what one of them decides they're going to do. Another is dead set against it and just wants to get home, and the last is basically along for the ride. They meet up with a lot of different people along the way and basically end up trying to stop an entire war. The characters are so much fun, and coming up with the religions and technologies is a almost a hobby of mine.

If you'd like to see a sample/ask questions/help me with plot points or whatever you are welcome because I adore this idea. It's kind of awesome, if I do say so myself.

That actually sounds like a pretty solid plot idea :O
I`m kind of intrigued.... lol
sylver_eyessylver_eyes on March 15th, 2010 01:10 am (UTC)
Haha, it is pretty solid, I basically know where it's going. I have a lot of pages in Word of it too, I didn't go nearly as in depth as I could have--didn't want to bore anyone. XD

Ohmigosh YAY, I'm so happy for you, okay okay you do this and then we'll write ASAP, I'll try to be online more and not be stupid about this sort of thing and uh... congrats!

I'm just waiting for everyone to make a clever nickname for me like they did when this one kid we all knew dropped out of high school~~~

N, I've basically gone back and forth from being really angsty to being really happy. And I took like twenty naps today.

But writing. Writing is good. I'll start writing soon.

Wait, you are online but we are not talking.
