January Talking Meme
SSar's Beast
Dear friends and readers,

I didn't want to do a talking meme in December because any blog-writing time was unashamedly put towards Yuletide time. But I sure could stand to blog more.

So: if you feel inclined, please suggest a topic you'd like me to talk about, and, if you want, a day or a period in January during which it would be most convenient for you to read my response. I'm going to cap it at 20, er, should that be necessary, because posting every day is not a realistic goal for me at this time.

Topics I would already be looking for excuses to write about: Interstellar, fandom, writing processes in general, cooking/recipes. And I owe seekingferret Thinky Thoughts On Inglourious Basterds, so let's schedule that towards the end of the month.

PS: thank you for the snickerdoodle recipe, osprey_archer, it looked lovely.

(Are the topics you're already looking for excuses for ones you'd like us to ask because they're covered, or ones you'd like us to start with?)

Let me just toss out a couple for the middle of January, and I'll redo as necessary:
- things you look for when looking for a new book to read (conversely, things that turn you off)
- favourite indulgences (take that any way you like)
- do you have any fic you would love to see written, but really don't want to write? as in, wave your want and POOF there it is for you to read?

Do you "rough draft" a piece completely - start to finish? Or do you write then edit then continue then edit....? Do you return to an edited piece again?

So............what is your drafting/editing process? And how do you decide a piece is ready for consumption?

Man, I can't think of anything to request! But I look forward to seeing more of you around here. :)

Ooh here's one -- are there any fictional character's deaths you cannot and will not ever get over? Either because you felt they were meta-unnecessary (see: fridging) or because they were necessary but still hurt oh-so-good? Let's go for the beginning of the month on that one, get the sadder questions out of the way before the thinky ones. ^^

What makes the difference between something you love and something you'd write fic for?
AU or canon-compliant?

Sure - and I think I'll ask you the first one back, if that's all right!

Sure. I'll add it to my January docket. :scribbles it on to write list:
