Writing Questions

Eh. I'm feeling nosy tonight. Been contemplating Writing, both in the context of several academic papers in various stages of completion from pre-outline to "polishing up for submission to a conference," and various fiction projects. Just thought I'd throw out a few questions about writing, to the general masses, see what people had to say. Most of these are oriented towards fiction writing, though the hard-core academics among us could probably answer them for more scholarly output as well.

1. What genre do you enjoy reading the most?

2. What genre do you enjoy reading the least?

3. What genre do you enjoy writing the most?

4. What genre do you try to avoid writing even at knifepoint?

5. What aspect of writing comes easiest to you?

6. What's most difficult for you to construct?

7. What aspect do you prefer to ignore as much as possible?

8. How do you prefer to put a story together? Do you think about mechanics or character or something else?

9. Tell me a deliciously shameful little secret about you and writing.

I'll start. Collapse )
