Re: How long do you take to finish a draft/ WIP?

On average, i finish a rough draft in 2-3 months and then finish revising in another 4 months. But, i'm aware that this is mostly due to my speedy writing.

Re: Hours per Week?

Mine really varies, since i do most my writing while at the dayjob, so it all depends on how much dayjob work i have that day.
We'll say a low average is 8 hrs a week, with some weeks being 0 (rarely, thank goodness) and some weeks being closer to 30.

Re: Of the characters you've written, who is your favorite?

I'm pretty fond of my current MC Kiel, who's snarky and sarcastic and a bad boy. His voice really came through for me.

Re: What is your writing weakness? (Let's call this therapy)

I've got several recurring weaknesses (inability to Finish.Thedamn.Work!, getting distracted by shiny new story ideas, getting bogged down in "Why exactly did I want to tell this story again? What real value does it give...?") but those are really just symptoms, when I get down to it. My sickness i...

Re: Most Handsome Character in Anime

I'm not sure if he counts (the show he's in isn't exactly anime, but it does seem to have some anime influence); but I always thought Beast Boy from the Cartoon Network's Teen Titians was pretty cute. :) I would say he counts since the series is animated in an anime style. Sort of an homage, if you...

Re: Most Handsome Character in Anime

This is the part where I admit that A) I haven't heard of ANYONE or show/game on this list, with the exception of Sailor Moon, which I just learned from Beth Revis, and B) Can someone tell me the difference between anime and magna? That's not meant to be a smart ass question. I mean it seriously. I...

Re: Most Handsome Character in Anime

This might be a first. Spike of Cowboy Bebop*. I clearly have a thing for the snappy bad boys who like to beat people up or blow things up. I'm not sure what that says about me. *While I love both the original and dubbed version of Cowboy Bebop, I can't help but think most of my twitterpating over ...

And if we could include video games.... Cloud

Yes. Though i have to say, Squall in Kingdom Hearts, when he's voiced by David Boreanaz? Yeah...that's pretty awesome.
But for me, in video games, it's Ezio Auditore.

Re: Condensing Your Pitch

I always have a single sentence pitch to spout off if someone asks. Mostly because my dad asks all the time and i got tired of not having something ready. So now i just say something like "a teen boy rescues an orphaned sea serpent and discovers a way to save his country from war" and that usually d...
