What's the first thing you ever wrote that you still have?
The first thing I wrote was a school assignment, it was about alien kittens, it was rather cute or at least my 5th grade teacher thought it was.. and believe me, my fifth grade teacher was satan.. or someone -very- close to it
Was it any good?
I thought so at the time but I think all my writing is bloody brilliant, and then reality sets in. (And the second reading)
Oh gods no, I wish I could.. I've attempted many times.. I just can't think in rhymes.
I do have one angsty poem, but it is relegated to the depths of my computer hard drive.
Favourite genre of writing?
I think I like tragedy. That is my favorite.. I guess it is because I identify with it the most
Most fun character you ever wrote?
Setzer Gabbiani and Magus Zeal.. together. Oh gods.. no not anything slashy but as brothers. Let me tell you, sic those two together and they get -very- snarky in my mind.
Most annoying character you ever wrote?
I would have to say Morgana.. but only Because Magus didn't like her.. and with good reason because I -hated- her
Best plot you ever wrote?
It would have to be my plot for the Dark Tower.. very morbid, very macabre.. I was in love with that plot, to me it personified romance. And not like love romance, but more like very romantic.
Coolest plot twist you ever wrote?
When Corrine decided -not- to stay with Magus. That was like very unexpected. Corrine Graie decided to go independant and say that she didn't -need- Magus and then she up and left him. It certainly caused Magus quite a bit of ego loss. I had -intended- for them to stay together.. but when I write, it usually is uncertain the outcome.

Do you ever go back to an old idea long after you abandoned it?

Quote something you've written. The first thing to pop into your mind.
"As humans we long for a great love. It lingers in the unconscious thought and we live half-heartedly until we can find someone to share our ideals and therefore complete us. We search and we do not find, we exist and yet we do not actually live. Our soul can only vaguely comprehend the concept of an all-encompassing love, and often we don't realize it until it truly enfolds us and then gently slips away, leaving words unsaid, gestures undone, and hearts unrevealed.
This is a story of such a love, a love born in circumstance, twined in fate, and consummated by sacrifice and death. Its echoes are faint, floating through an old forgotten Fortress. The musty fragrance of dust lingers about it, along with the scent of lavenders. An odd combination and yet it brings back memories regardless of if you had experienced them or not. A subtle deja vu that affects all who pass through those doors of ancient stone."
That is the beginning of "A Kiss Before Dying".. the very first sentance.
