Last thing I posted was that Jus In Belo porn, last thing I worked on was my Big Bang.
Was it any good?
The porn was, the Big Bang is getting there.
What's the first thing you ever wrote that you still have?
It's either this really shitty songfic (suicide!songfic at that) or, if that's not on Dean, a Fastlane fic so bad I'm having trouble looking at the new comment I got on it in my inbox.
I think I wrote a poem once. Two if you count one I had to do for school.
Just that one.
Most fun character you ever wrote?
Jess; she's so funny and awesome and I love the stuff I can get away with with her, like the conversation she's participating in in my latest scene, where she's talking about GFs in FFVIII and "subtly" implies that she believes in Ifrit and Quezacotl and so on.
Most annoying character you ever wrote?
Sam. Dean almost won out if only for the way he keeps insisting I capitalize "dad" when hovering in his POV but, really, that's my biggest problem with him. Sam, though, refuses to listen to a thing I have to say. I get a scene all nice and planned out and then I start writing (dialogue first, of course) and 1k later the scene is somewhere else completely because Sam got snarky instead of emo or just plain decided he didn't wanna go with the flow.
Best plot you ever wrote?
Ha! Dude, most of my stuff barely passes for having a plot. I think my Big Bang is gonna be pretty good though, I've got the main plot in there and then a few sub ones (okay, a LOT) and if I can tie them together it's gonna kick ass. Or look really fucking convoluted and messy.
Coolest plot twist you ever wrote?
I'm gonna have to say it's the one in Wreckage, where the whole accident is a dream.
How often do you get writer's block?
About once or twice a scene. It's weird though because my writer's block isn't so much that I don't know what to do, it's that I know exactly what I want to do but I just can't get out the right words for it.
How do you fix it?
Talk in chat, usually, or force my way through it. Sometimes just ignoring it and doing something else works too, though.
Do you type or write by hand?
Both. I write longhand at work and on the bus but type when I'm at home.
Do you save everything you write?
Pretty much, yeah. I'm a V big packrat.
Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it?
I don't really ever abandon anything, but, yeah, I think about old ideas a lot.
What's your favorite thing that you've written?
Probably It Comes At A Price, because it really is how I see Sam arriving at Stanford, and it's not completely horrible.
What's everyone else's favorite thing that you've written?
The Difference Between A Rule And A Law, one of my Prison Break fics. This is what I'm known for in that fandom, "You wrote The Difference!" I still like the idea behind it but I really wasn't that good of a writer back then so I can barely make myself read it.
Do you ever show people your work?
Not IRL (except for one small AU I did where I turned someone into a serial killer) but, yeah.
Who's your favorite constructive critic?
Chat, of course. Sara and Ashley and Steve and Kim and Hans. They have no problem telling me if something isn't working or when I'm being difficult (which is a LOT).
Did you ever write a novel?
Nope. According to one of my teachers a noel is 250+ pages and I've never written that much in a single story yet, but who knows, maybe I'll hit that on my Big Bang.
Have you ever written fantasy, sci-fi, or horror?
Horror, yes. Sci-fi, yes. Fantasy, I don't think so.
Ever written romance or teen angsty drama?
Yes. I was an annoying twelve-year-old who is kinda glad the sites that archived those fics aren't online anymore.
What's one genre you have never written, and probably never will?
How many writing projects are you working on right now?
Technically only one, everything else goes on hold for Big Bang, otherwise the temptation to work on something besides it is too great.
Do you want to write for a living?
Eh, not really. Well. I guess that depends on what you mean by :write for a living." Books? Nah, that's a little too boring (and stressing) for me. Now writing for TV or something, on the other hand, sounds fucking awesome. I sometimes feel like I'm the only one out here who doesn't have original fic or original stories. All my original characters are, like, AU kids of superheroes from this one, random, kinda cracky idea I had when I was about fifteen or so.
Have you ever written something for a magazine or newspaper?
Have you ever won an award for your writing?
Online awards, yeah. The Difference Between A Rule And A Law got a couple in PB and Twelve Times Dad Threatened to Turn The Car Around (And Three Times Dean Almost Rode In The Trunk) won Best John that one year we had The Lawrence Awards.
Ever written something in script or play format?
Only for school.
What is your favorite word?
Fuck! It just has so many different ways it can be used.
Do you ever write based on yourself?
Like a character based on me? No. I use some experiences from my life though sometimes, and my speech patterns tend to bleed into the characters sometimes if I don't notice and yank it back out.
Which of your characters most resembles you?
Where do you get ideas for your characters?
Yeah, I think this question is more for people who think up their characters from scratch, and I don't have a lot of OCs.
Do you ever write based on your dreams?
I don't really remember them, so probably not.
Do you prefer happy endings, sad endings, or cliff-hangers?
Happy, because I'm a big ol' sap.
Have you ever written anything based on an artwork you've seen?
Dude, yes, half of my Big Bang was inspired by pictures joosetta drew.
Are you concerned with spelling and grammar as you write?
Yeah, mostly spelling. Grammar, notsomuch, because Word is stupid and gives some retarded-ass suggestions for what they think is a grammar mistake.
Ever write something entirely in chatspeak?
Fuck no! And punch me if I ever do.
Does music help you write?
Oh yeah, I need a playlist to write too. I write while watching TV too sometimes but music helps a lot more.
Are people surprised and confused when they find out you write well?
Quote something you've written.
"You know how I said California was the worst state? With the earthquakes—"
"And the mudslides and the forest fires and the agents, yeah."
"Wrong. I was so, so wrong. It's Missouri, Missouri is the pus-filled scab on America's ass."
Dean ignores her and continues. "If elected president I would flatten the whole fucking state and start over."
