I agree with you about the writing about People bit. The characters - how they think, what they want/desire, what annoys, their beliefs etc. - always fascinated me in stories, same for my writing. Plot? :no:

:nod: I think right now I'm really influenced by Grant Naylor. One more than the other, though. Doug Naylor is just too angsty sometimes. Anyway, they both really delve into very complex characters--I love reading them, and I love writing them more.

What do you think is your favorite part when crafting a character?

All of it. :D Starting with a name, then getting his/her age, and so on to where I can firmly see whether a smirk is more likely than a smile. Then I get to see them go places and grow out.

So you don't have much an idea of who they are until you throw em in an enviroment?

That's pretty much the opposite of what I do. The way I usually write, I know them really well before there is an environment. I just don't know who they'll become. :shrug: I like Dune and Lord of the Rings just fine, but I don't write milieu stories, so I don't often rely on whatever my world is. Not heavily, anyway.

I hated writing for school, too because I could never write what I wanted to...and even though I've written an "almost novel", I still don't consider myself a proper writer....

Exactly it! It's hard to write something you're "supposed to", isn't it? I mean when is someone else doing the supposing, at least....
Oh, there's no such thing as a proper writer, I think. :D You just do it 'cause you love it, and call yourself a writer if you like the way the word looks on your hat. But that's only what I think.

Oh I like that concept. :) 'xcept the word "writer" doesn't seem to fit between "cranky", "fussy", "impulsive" or "impatient".

It's funny. I wrote for school until five and a half years ago. Never considered writing for any other reason until then. I guess Elissa smacked me upside the head.

Oh, I hated writing for school. I always slummed it because I was in a hurry to be out of everything. To be fair on all counts, I didn't start writing any of the long things other people know about until 2003 or 2004.
