My BFF [ profile] visionofblue has been away from the internets for quite awhile now. I know she is sick and I'm getting kind of worried over how long she has been away. I think I'm going to get some more minutes on my cell phone and try calling her. I've never actually talked to anybody from LJ (that I didn't know in RL first) on the phone before so that will be interesting. Have I mentioned that I'm really awkward and lame when talking on the phone?

I have a question for the fanfic writers on my flist: What do you think are your strengths and weaknesses as a writer? What is your creative process like?

I wouldn't actually call myself a fanfic writer. I'm a wannabe writer. I occasionally put out pointless little drabbles but nothing of any real substance. I suck at writing actual stories where people do stuff other than talk and I suck at writing descriptively. I am good at writing witty dialogue and that's it. I've also been told that I'm good at capturing characters voices. (My favorite comment to get is when someone tells me "I could totally see *insert character name here* saying that.") Anytime I have strayed from my comfort zone it hasn't been pretty. I suppose I could try to improve as a writer but I'm just not that invested in writing. I never set out to write fanfiction. The only time I write anything is when an idea suddenly strikes me and I go write it down. And then I re-read what I wrote a thousand times trying to figure out if it's complete garbage or not.
