LKAG! OH YEAH!
Nice questions, Paul and Sam
How is your NaNoWriMo novel coming along?
I'm not doing NaNo, actually, but I do started writing a novel this month. It's doing great, given that I take my time. I'm really do beginning to love it (not meaning to boast about my writing, but enjoy what I'm writing)
What part(s) of writing a story do you enjoy the most?
Those little scenes with dialogue where the characters' personaltiy really gets to show. And not just
dialogue- dialogue being one of the many things going on (though when there are too many
things going on I feel like my head's going to explode and usually end up editing the scene
What part(s) do you like the least?
I would say the parts that are necessary for the plot to continue, but I don't really like. They vary a lot, so I can't give a specific answer here. Oh, and writing too much monolgue or explanations, but that's generally something that should be avoided
Do you usually plan your plots in detail before writing, or do you "write by the seat of your pants," so to speak?
PLAN! I'm quite religious about this, but I know from my expirience that when I'm well into what I'm writing and have planned it neatly so far, things just work out themselves
(though I also tend to make a general plan, then add the details when I write it)
Who is your favourite character to write in your novel (or fanfiction!) so far?
My favorite characters to write about are Melissa, Ignotus, Augustos and Lisette
Lisette is a rather minor character, but by far my favorite adult in the story. She's French, mother of five children and her husband is abroad working (she latterly joins him, as her elder daughter and son return from college so there's someone to take care of the youngest kids)
I love her introductions, and the dialogue/scenes she gets to have with Melissa (her daughter) and Augustos (the lead character)
I think what I love on Melissa and Ignotus is that they're a mixture of myself and certain individuals I dislike. *smirk goes here* Well... I could go on about them, but it would get too long. Generally, they crash, but they find a way to work out eventually (not romantically, but they begin as eternal arguers/enemies, eventually turning into friendship)
I really do like Augustos, which is good, since he gets a lot of attention. I mostly like his spirit, and his evaluation. He gets to be brave and less loud, which I actually enjoy on him (I've written about quiet characters becoming louder, but not of louder becoming quieter. And I like how he's turning out. If you get what I mean)
