writing meme thing!

Stolen from birdsarecalling:

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" What isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

And it seems like a lot more fun to do that than to do working.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions!

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? And so on.

So there you have it! Okay, it's pretty tl;dr, so the short version is, "If you're curious about anything that went into the writing of one of my stories, ask me about it."

I am still so excited about my Yuletide assignment. I know what I'm going to write, basically, but I hesitate to start already because then I'll finish it weeks before it's due and I'll go crazy waiting.
