favorite part of writing?

Postby rhondarightbrainlefty » Mon Dec 12, 2011 9:34 pm

What is your favorite part of writing? The plot? Creating characters? Describing people places things? My favorite part is the dialogue...next would be thoughts that the main character feels but won't say

I can't really say which part of writing is my favorite. I only have a couple of characters in mind, some broad idea of what could happen, absolutely no idea how it's going to turn out - so in essence, all of it is my favorite because it all works itself out as I go along.

I can say what my favorite part of the process is - that first sentence. I type it, don't like it, something isn't quite right - it has to be perfect! So I agonize over it, sometimes for hours, sometimes for days - and then it happens. I type that first period and BOOM! There's a thrill runs through me and I sometimes just sit back and laugh, I'm so delighted! I don't think about the coming headaches, the swearing, the delete button, the "he can't do that, you idiot!". It's all fresh and exciting and waiting to happen. All it takes is that first sentence.
"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

right, right i agree. the passion and love for your craft is going to be bigger than a favorite. this is very true. but i do love the dialogue part. with favorites, when people ask me 'what's your favorite song or type of music or movie or food...i have no answer. generally it alllll depends on my mood or it's apples and oranges

wow! that first sentence is very very intense i sort of..have to take breaks from that part lol. but yes it makes you SMILE and sigh a sigh of relief once you have it together! goooood point!

I love writing in general but I would have to say my favorite part is creating the story because I'm a visual person I see my story as a movie in my head. I know it seems a bit odd I know but it is the best part because I feel as if I'm part of the story. That is my favorite part of writing.
