yellow: what is your favorite style?
i’m not even sure if i really have one? i almost exclusively write this really simplistic third person omnipresent that’s high on emotions but doesn’t use a lot of emotional words, just a lot of little details. idk how to even begin explaining outside of linking to one of my fics and the only ones i have posted publicly are pretty outdated. maybe i’ll edit the names out of another if anyone is keen to get an idea.
blue: what is your favorite genre/subject on which to write?
oh lord, hell if i know. idk why i did this meme, i have no clue how to answer any of these questions. i tend to write lots of really heavy angst. i don’t do character death, but anything short of that? i’m game.
indigo: what do you think is the greatest flaw in your writing?
i can’t do dialogue to save my life. it’s the worst. i can spend hours sitting around thinking “okay, how would a real person say this?” and still write the clunkiest, most awkward things ever. lost cause.
also i can’t write smut outside of the most boring vanilla shit but whatever.
violet: what is your favorite thing about your writing?
i feel like i’m kind of good at subtle emotion? there are no big “i love you”s or huge swaths of emotion or anything, it’s all subtle and without a lot of major detail (ie, “_____ couldn’t believe ____ was telling her this now” type things) outside character movement and minute reaction and superflous details that add up to a bigger picture.
or maybe i’m just full of myself, ha.
just reread that and none of it makes sense oops.
silver: top three sources for inspiration?
dreams - i write the things i dream, just twisted slightly to fit characters and universes, all the time. music - i never really fit things to song, but as background fodder music tends to help me move things along. and other people’s fics? like, i’ll read something and think “what if this were in x fandom instead of y and what if character b did this instead of character a and how would this new world react to this situation if all these little things were changed?” and kind of adapt idea for whatever characters or univerise i’m writing for and try to imagine what would bring that situation on, or what would happen in the fallout, and write that.
rainbow: three favorite authors?
cormac mccarthy is my boo! also truman capote and tamora pierce (ya 4 lyfe, yo).
and favorite thing you’ve ever written?
i have this thing where i really just loathe 99% of what i wrote in the past, but i wrote a fic about a year and a half ago called boxer with a genderqueer (or bigender? i never really specified/made that distinction myself) character and i didn’t use pronouns for them for the entirety of the 10k word oneshot. so while not a super realistic thing or anything, i’m kind of pleased with myself in terms of the technicality of it. i mean have you tried writing fic without pronouns before? that shit is HARD. and i really liked that slightly off from canon approach to these characters and their universe, in that they both apparently felt real enough to be who they were supposed to be albeit in a different circumstance, yet they were also different enough that these things could still happen. kind of a realistic au? idk.
