1, 6, 11!
1) is there a story you’re holding off on writing for some reason?
the tempest-fanfic novel I mentioned in the last meme response. it’s been churning and turning and sitting like a bright stone in the pit of my soul for a very long time, and I think I’m waiting for the point where I feel like I’m a Proper Writer who can Do It Justice. it’s going to be completely unlike anything else I write.
6) something you would go back and change in your writing that it’s too late/complicated to change now
obviously I might write certain stories differently, if I were writing them now instead of 2/5/10 years ago, but I don’t regret any of them. the record stands.
speaking more broadly, I don’t think it’s too late to change anything! my writing style is a constantly-morphing beast. my current ‘notes for the second draft’ file in scrivener contains a lot of notes in regards to things that I have picked up on and been determined to change even during the process of writing this one novel, such as FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO A CTRL-F ON THE WORDS ‘ALMOST’, ‘NEARLY’ & ‘A LITTLE’ AND THEN STAB YOURSELF.
11) what aspect of your writing do you think has most improved since you started writing?
this is a very large and hilarious question to answer given that I started writing fiction at the age of five. so it’s improved in every possible direction and by every possible metric. I think I know more of the rules, now? I know more about grammar and story structure and how other people write. but honestly, I’m just as likely to break those rules in the name of a good sentence or a good story as I was in kindergarten.
oh and also I can write pretty great porn now.
so there’s that.
