I found this neat tag/questionnaire about writing, and I thought it would be helpful (for myself as well as others), to answer them.
A. What do you write? Fanfiction, original fiction, nonfiction, articles, songs, poems, essays, plays, what?
My chronological progression of writing has sort of went from original fiction -> articles -> fanfiction -> poems -> original fiction. (That is ignoring the essays I write for school, which goes all through the cycle.) I mean, I still have my Supernatural fanfiction blog that I share with a friend (which we really need to update because our followers most likely think we have been decapitated or something along those lines) and I write book reviews/articles from time to time on this blog… but original fiction is what I find the most fulfilling to write. I am more inclined to writing novels, but I enjoy dabbling in short story writing as well.
B. How often do you write?
Heh. The answer of this question varies – from once a week to an hour or two every day. I’ve been more recently sticking to the latter, and I am hoping it is a good habit that will continue.
C. Who is your favourite character of your own? Who is your favourite character created by someone else? Why?
As an author who views all characters as her children, I find this question unfair. However, I can give a few favourites and explain my reasonings behind my choices.
For my own characters, the ones that come to mind as being delightful to write are Benny from my Great Depression/WW2 short story (which I intend on expanding into a novel someday) and… oh my goodness, I believe her name was Rowena – from that book I started when I was 14. (I have just realized I don’t have a draft of that book on this computer – cue the mad scramble to go through my old computer, which is now my sister’s, and my laptop.) I love Benny because he’s one of those characters who seems so laid back and The Coolest™ on the outside – but on the inside, he’s so conflicted and has so many secrets that he can tell no one, not even his best friend Sean. Rowena was really fun to write because she is a proud girl who is positive that she is better than everyone else (unfortunately, this is only enhanced when she finds out that she is royalty) – but along the way, life starts humbling her. But she still remains a snarky sassy thing, which is probably my favourite character to write. Secrets and Snark. Those are Anna’s top character ingredients.
