12 favorite place to write
I used to have this really lovely café that I loved to go to. And I think I should pick that habit up again. It removes distractions, and I seem to need changes of scenery here and there, or things get stagnant in my writing. At home though, I like to write at the kitchen table. But only if the kitchen is clean.
20 favorite character to write
I want to say Chris Redfield. I really do. And I also thought I would. But nah, it’s Kyle. Since Kyle Crane is an even blanker slate than Chris, I’ve had the opportunity to tack a lot of me on him. He’s a joy to write. Plus, his narrative borrows a lot from Sadja, but removes the other-wordliness from it. On the other hand, Chris is my favourite to write about.
44 do you write linear or do you write future scenes if you feel like it?
Pretty linear. I like having a scene to look forward to.
6 how did writing change you?
There are a lot of things in my life that don’t function right. That never have. But writing a Valiant Remedy, and all my little ficlets, and even to some extent Latchkey Hero, helped. As an example: Getting Taff into the passenger seat of a car that’s driven by a man, that’s just bad manners. I couldn’t. So I wrote a whole story that’s basically just a road trip with Chris Redfield at the wheel. It helped.
More so though, writing has given me a sense of community and belonging. I honestly think that finding the community on /r/fanfiction, and being a part of the Discord server out of it, has been one of the best things that ever happened to me. Plus, I made some great friends. @rinskiroo, @toastbre4d, and @deejaymil not being the only ones.
Thank you, Toasty 💚
