Clark :: Woobie

Okay, I Don't Normally Whine For Reviews, You Know That...

But if anyone has the time, tell me what you think of the last two chapters? I didn't get any reviews over here on the last one and this one has me nervous. I just want to make sure that they didn't suck and you know I get nervous about finales. *blinky eyes* I hate asking, but anxiety has me wanting to rewrite at this point. :(
Lois :: What's In A Name

Gacked From xenokattz And Has Me Curious....

I love this one. Really, have at it, guys. Nothing makes me work better than needing to know the answers to questions that need them. Makes me plot and plan even harder.

Ask me writing questions, should you happen to have any!

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" What 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 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! Anon commenting is (always) on, if you feel shy. Or 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 ____? And so on.
