Comment here and I will tell you what I like about how you play your character(s). Tell me which ones you want me to ramble about, please.

Yes, Abby lives and all I am posting is a meme for now.

1) List your main pups. Or all of your pups. And potential pups. Whatever, have fun.

2) Take a look at the Kinsey scale.

3) List and explain an area on the scale for that given character, giving specific examples if you'd like, or multiple numbers based on your rationalizations.

4) Know your pup just a little better. (Yeah um, more like YOU know my muses a little better, I know them quite well, thanks.)

I was talking to zippyknowsbest mun and she mentioned that writing is hard and you know what? It is. But it's also a rewarding self-challenge we all put ourselves up against with prompt writing and so on. We have fangirling communities and places like You Rock and Fic Rec Friday where other people can tell you what they enjoy from your arsenal of writing...

But here's the thing, they only see the end product, not all the possible hairpulling it took to get a certain piece just so. They may not know the fandom or the character the way you do. Maybe they don't know that you were on fire when you wrote something and it came out on the page exactly as you had imagined it.

Instead of pointing out someone else's fantastic work, list three of your own favorites. Maybe it's an entire prompt. Maybe just a few lines that nailed a character's voice. Is it a set up for an RP thread? A journal entry a muse had to write? A stylistic experiment that succeeded?

Mine, in no particular order and from more than one muse:

Processes and Promises -- This is one of those things that just flowed from beginning to end and was essentially a single draft with very few minor edits. It makes me happy to reread it.

Ring -- I love this because I feel like I really got Abby in there between the quoted dialogue. If you watched seasons 12, 13, 14 you might recognize the episodes the lines came from and the way Abby goes from rock steady to full of doubt in so few lines. It's more the stylistic experiment that ended up a success than the actual writing in this one.

Love Notes
-- I played with this one forever. I tend to do a lot of list-type prompts for various muses and just couldn't face another top ten style list so...this was my solution. It was a challenge to find ten different ways to have this particular character express "love" in written form. Never knew such a small number could seem so great.

Your turn!

Reading a lung x-ray is always fun. I like to use the ABCD mnemonic: Airway, Bones, Cardiac, Diaphragm and then finally look at the lung fields.

And since not all of you are aspiring med students/physicians all ready:

1. Think of the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.
2. Go to http://images.google.com and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results -- don't tell me the word.
4. Put this in your own blog so that I can do the same.
