Dialogue, dialogue, dialogue. It's easy for me. And it's fun to write and read.

Agreed, and I voted dialogue as well. ^_^

Charactarization, definitely.

I need to work on my Pat Buchanan jokes.

-sigh-

I'm such a terrible writer.

I've been told I'm good with imagery, keeping it away from purple territory, but still letting people know what's going on.

And I'm good with humor.

I'm absolutely terrible at descriptions- at least of everything besides people. I can describe people well, but other than that... I just can't. I find it much easier to write a gory action scene than to describe a garden.
Honey, you should see me in a crown.

Dialogue. The characters always talk to themselves in my mind, so I just record the conversations.

Characterization. I can't ever stop thinking of my characters. They rule my life in a way no other novel element ever could.
"As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero."

Dialogue. Apparently I'm good at walking the line between my dialogue having realism and being interesting.
My SPD senses are tingling.

Themes. I could never bring myself to create something that didn't matter.
