[Meme] Oh gods this took longer than expected

Can’t believe it’s been more than 6 months since I started this meme. Whoops. Well, I might as well finish it, since it has been bugging my mind.

Have you ever written a character with physical or mental disabilities? Describe them, and if there’s nothing major to speak of, tell us a few smaller ones.
I once considered writing a character who had a learning disability, ala Fei Mau if anyone remembers the TVB drama about the big fat guy who was mentally disabled. Although the idea has been simmering in my mind, I eventually gave up because there was no way I could write/explore him without being condescending, rude and shallow.

How often do you think about writing? Ever come across something IRL that reminds you of your story/characters?
Strangely enough, now that I’m away, yes, I think about it all the time. Very often, it’s not really the act of writing, of exploring the world I’ve created that I miss the most. It’s just the feel of the keys and typing in general. I spend most of my days in front of a computer nowdays, perhaps more than I’ve ever done in years, but I don’t do a lot of typing. Instead, I click on the mouse. And when I do turn to write, it’s only for brief seconds. Sigh.

To answer the second question, yes, sometimes, but what those are, I’m not telling. πŸ˜›

Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer and/or about one of his/her characters!
Jhameia and Ai, if they’re reading their F-list. Tell me about the character you hate the most in your novel, and why. πŸ˜›

[Meme] 2 days to CF, and I’m writing

Short meme is short.

How willing are you to kill your characters if the plot so demands it? What’s the most interesting way you’ve killed someone?
Stabbing people straight in the heart. Always works. Though it really depends on the reason they die.

Do any of your characters have pets? Tell us about them.
If you count Spirit animals, then yes they do have pets. Though it tends to be servants rather than pets.

Let’s talk art! Do you draw your characters? Do others draw them? Pick one of your OCs and post your favorite picture of her!
Yes. Annwn’s turning out to be a rather multi-faceted character, which I think is quite a nice and pleasant surprise.

Along similar lines, do appearances play a big role in your stories? Tell us about them, or if not, how you go about designing your characters.

[Meme] Vocal Meme!

Ganked from sis Wilddrive. πŸ˜€ I did this because I was bored.

Vocal Meme
Voice posts are fun, right? You get to hear funny accents if your friends are from far, far away. All we really want is to hear your voice, we don’t care what you’re saying. So here’s a list of typical meme questions that would otherwise be boring, but when communicated aloud – well, it’s entertaining. Answer these questions in your post, and encourage others with voice-posting abilities to do the same.

1) What’s your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) Is it cold where you are?
5) What’s the time?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on tv?
10) What’s your favorite tv show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.

And here’s the vocal meme if you’re bored enough to listen! Warning, there will go the next 10 minutes of your life. :3
