What element of prose/fiction do you consider yourself to be strongest at?

Personally I'd consider myself to be strongest at my language and description; I think I've always been able to describe and convey something to a reader quite well and use a good level of language to do it.
How young are you?
How old am I?

Themes. I have a tendency to write in vague, colorful impressions. I like to maintain themes throughout, it makes my life much easier.
Sing lustily and with a good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or half asleep; but lift up your voice with strength.

I have no idea... O_o

Probably conflicts and pace. I'm quite a sadist to my characters, lol.

Hm, I don't know. Probably characterisation, since I'm so obsessive with them and giving them back stories and such.

I've actully never been asked this, lol. And so I cannot give a direct answer from experience but feedback over the years have said dialogue is my strongest contributation. *shrugs*

My second (are we allowed to list seconds?) would be conflict because like Snoink, I unconciously make 'em suffer. Whoops! I'm such a horrible writer! :x

Its a three or four way tie for me:
Characterization
Dialogue
Plot/Conflict/Pace
Narrative

I like my plots, but also my characterisation and use of imagery.

I voted for narrative/plot/conflict :).
I wrote the above just for you.

Language.
It's very colorful. But I always need direction
so if there is no directions then all the words go like seagulls and fly randomly about, circling like stupid seagulls *shakes fist.*

Mmm. Probably characterization, conflict, or dialouge. But I didn't pick the plot/narrative/conflict option because I can never develop an entire plot, so...XD

I voted dialogue, since that's what people seem to like most about my writing. My description bites. XD

Plots. I love to come up with plots. I've created so many twists and turns that it's almost impossible to predict my story's ending.
