Thanks for tagging me rosalui!

Anybody who wants to do this meme go for it, I'd love to see your answers!

How long have you been writing for? What made you start? Oh man, I was writing novels in journals before I hit the teen years, and I made my own picture books/poetry anthologies when I was, like, eight.
Did you start with fanfic, and if not - how did you view fanfiction before you tried it for yourself? I started publishing with fanfic, definitely. I kinda tripped into it, to be honest--thank gawd I didn't know what ffnet was when I was writing Digimon self-inserts, haha.
What's the best writing advice you've ever encountered? Not advice exactly, but figuring out how to write a really crappy first draft was invaluable.
What is your biggest struggle when it comes to writing? I tend to use too much description, and I'm not great at establishing setting; it doesn't come naturally to me.
What is the best comment anyone has given you? I absolutely treasure the comments that are like, "This is the X time I've reread this fic" or "I read this when I need cheering up". They make my entire week.
Can you write whenever/wherever, or do you need a certain setup in order to make words happen? I tend to do better with music. It drowns out my inner editor for the most part!
Would you say you have a definite style that can be recognised? Is that something you strive toward, or do you like your writing to be more fluid and maybe unpredictable? Apparently, since I tend to get picked out of a lineup even with anonymous postings, lol. I don't mind. I think I have a pretty distinct sense of humor at this point, but that's my personality so I'm okay with it!
Would you like to collaborate with another writer? If you already have, share something you learned from the experience? I...might? It would be really hard for me to relinquish any creative control though, so maybe not.
How attached do you get to your projects? If you can't seem to finish something, do you let it go or work yourself even harder until you get it out? I'll drop something for years and still potentially come back to it. I never delete anything.
Share a work/excerpt/sentence you're really proud of? I'm really proud of "In a Land of Prats and a Time of Zombies" and "from here to eternity".
I honestly don't get to talk to other writers about their process enough. If there's something about your process you've always wanted to share, please do so here! Hmm, okay, fun fact: I cannot write porn unless the type font is either size 8 or colored white. I just...can't look at sex scenes while they're in progress or I'll shriek and delete everything!

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

I'm going to be blogging about awesome books. Not the most creative subject, but hey, reading is what I do best and love most, so. Enjoy the inevitable spazzfests and ramblings. xD

EDIT: Okay, I'm adding music in there--each post is also gonna have a musical recommendation that probably won't have anything to do with the book. These things have nothing to do with each other, so why am I combining them? Because I am insane. Enjoy.

Stolen from the lovely hiza_chan, as per usual:

1. Go to page 77 (or 7, or just hit pagedown 7 times,) of your current manuscript/WIP.
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.

excerpt from the itashi itachi-is-a-fallen-angel fic that may or may not be a destiel fic in disguise: )

...I have about twenty things labelled unfinished but at this rate they're never gonna go anywhere. I seem to have lost all drive for writing these days. Dammit. If y'all want to throw prompts at me I'm all ears. ;~~;

...Heather, can you tell I'm just trolling your journal these days? xD;

Fandom Meme 2011!

read on~ )

In other news, finally saw Season of the Witch. It was interesting. Nathan (Misfits) was in it. I liked it well enough, even though we were correct in guessing that it was an "everybody dies" kind of movie. ^^; Except due to awesome fanvideos and the like, every now and again I couldn't help looking at the witch and thinking "Rubyyyy." xD

First-line-of-every-post meme! Thing! Yeah. xD Stolen from hiza_chan, as per usual.

January: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
February: Genma. ♥
March: No, not Artificial Intelligence--American Idol. Anybody else watching this season?
April: Right. So. I was enjoying the chapter, the flashbacks, the image of Kurenai and Asuma's baby, all that good stuff.
May: Longest conversation with the Kyuubi ever, methinks?
June: Aw, come on!
July: Mito appearance=love.
September: Okay, so in a fit of procrastination-induced madness, I have decided to try and write something pairing Shisui with the weirdest person possible.
October: Well, it's better than complaining about work or doing coursework like I'm supposed to be doing, so there you go.
November: *sigh* And here we go again.
December: Not too much to say...Naruto's still sounding more like his old self, which is nice.

...My God, guys, did I seriously just ramble about Naruto chapters all year?

To distract myself from the fail that is apparently my life...fanfiction meme 2011!

When I write a story, what do you guys immediately look for?

(Incidentally, I've stayed up to obscene hours the last few nights reading Dean/Cas fic. This meme was stolen from an author of said fic. xD)

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Rampaging over the fields, cutting down all who dare stand in the way using a jeweled meat hammer, cometh Emanga! And she gives a vengeful roar:

"I'm going to contort you like it's my job!!"

Pick a paragraph or any passage (preferably around the 500 word mark) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

(In other words, I shall be trying desperately to make it seem like there was some thought process behind my writing. Don't expect too much. xD;;)
