Awww thanks for keeping me from getting lonely! =P
1. What do I like about writing? It keeps my brain from feeling stale. I work at a pretty dry job, and in my downtime it's nice to have something that takes a little more thinking and creating. I love getting lost in a story, particularly when you discover things about characters or the plot along the way that you hadn't planned. Those are the best moments. Dislike? How much time it takes. As I mentioned before, it's been on the back burner for a long time for me just because it takes so much time. I wish I was one of those people who could pump out chapters and chapters a day, but it doesn't work that way for me. =(!
2. It's funny, my two favourites are the two people I really got to know first from HPFF - Violet Gryfindor and forsakenphoenix beta'd my very first one-shot I posted and I still talk to both of them and still love their writing. I have other favourites but these two are always the first I think of.
3. For a novella or novel, I've got to plot it out either chapter by chapter or month by month in the story. For a Hogwarts era fic, I'd take the school year and plan it by month, rearranging so that the plot is sort of well balanced throughout the year. For anything less than 10 chapters though, I usually don't really plan it too thoroughly and just dive in. For anything longer, I need outlines or I just forget where I was going with things. Sharp, I know.
4. Draco/anyone. Yeah. I have Draco issues. I've never been able to read fics of his and I have issues with his characterisation; I guess I have a specific view of him that often gets ruined and there's a stubborn part of me that won't have it.
Thanks for popping in =)))
