* Long fics in particular - Let No Man would be great, Crane Wife, Final Game,  
* humorous cheetah fic,
* stories that are a year or two old- ones they've got different perspectives on now - and/or fics they have a particular affection for. Though I suppose you could also go with one you dislike or just haven't looked at in a while, to see if it's better than you remember. IDK, pick one (or more!) you've got something to say about.

Meme seen at [livejournal.com profile] aralias and [livejournal.com profile] bagheera_san :

Pick a character and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them. Any and all characters welcome. (even ones i haven't written but might know about...)

Six Companions Whose First Novels I’d Read
and what they’d write

I'll answer these slowly, in order of ease, because this is also GRAD SCHOOL APS WEEK OMG.[livejournal.com profile] aralias asked, and shall receive.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] gritsinmisery

When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Entirely self-indulgent, I know, but WOMG work was FOUL and then today was v. sad, so I feel entitled? Also as a writer you live in a world wherein you only know your writing as YOU see it, and can't really perceive it as a reader does? Which is frustrating, and leads to Hardy writing foul poetry instead of more brill novels and Conan-Doyle loathing Holmes. So it's good to try to gain some perspective of how you work/don't for other people!




What would you say are the trademarks of my writing? What themes or quirks or turns of phrase have you noticed? What is it that makes a story/tag by me -- well, a story/tag by me?
(...Man, person I stole this from, what IS a tag? Like, a skin tag? O_o)

And I'm adding, b/c am glutton for improving!punishment: what are the consistent points that you feel need improvement? ...tense and quotation issues, obviously, but, y'know, anything else? Particular voices? General style issues?




Also, have added anon-option on comments, in case you feel you can't tell me that you hatehatehate my metaphors or something to my user-icon and NEED to do it anonymously. Though obviously I'd feel more comfy if you, er, just said it, and would not in any way dislike you for pointing out that I should take more time with drafts or something (just an example, but I know I should on that particular one, and actually feel v. guilty for not ruminating more over a draft before I post it).
