Stolen from blueraccoon over on lj:

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to do working.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions! (Or use this to ask your flist to ask you questions).

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.

Go for it, folks.

If you were writing RPF about me, what characteristics (either physical or personality) would you harp on, and what purple prose would you use to describe them? (Note: The more superficial and cliched, the better. We all like to think of ourselves as intelligent, but it's not what sells the muffins, if you know what I mean.)


ETA: Oh, also, am screening anonymous comments on this one. There's no point in tempting fate here.

Bring it

So, I went and got one o' them formspring.me pages. Feel free to ask me a question, although I reserve the right to plead the fifth, about you know, whatever.

Also known as, "This is what happens when you go to bed early because you're exhausted and then you wake up again and are unable to fucking sleep, you do memes."

The problem with LJ: We all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about one another. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

I reserve the right to plead the fifth.

Totally ganked from [personal profile] such_heights, but intriguing to me!: Ask me my fannish Top Five [Whatevers].

I am reserving the right to skip some if I (a) have nothing to say on the subject or (b) have nothing intelligent to say on the subject.

(It's been a weird July/August so far -- those of you who know me a bit better can probably guess why, but today I sat down and cleaned out my DVR and stumbled across like 12 recorded episodes of Globe Trekker and for the first time in a long time, I sat there and watched one about Sri Lanka and the Maldives and I smiled.)
