As long as the character is developed, I can "enter their mind/thoughts" quite easily. It's a skill that comes in handy for dialogue and dialect especially but loads more too in the way of elements.

I *think*, I'm not sure, but I think I'm best at characterization.
I might just be going by what I like best, but I think that's what it is.
When I think of a story, obviously, I think of the plot and stuff, but I spend more time thinking about my characters, and what they would do in different situations. I'm a character writer. I focus alot on my characters.

Hmmm....
Probably Conflict, I'm really good at putting my characters in a sucky position then describing their reactions. lol

Hey ungraceful, I will teach you to forgive one another.

Characterization, I guess. I don't really know but I love making people up. :D Then, once they're a bit vivid in my mind, I'd make them do things so I guess conflict's second. :wink:

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

I too, but in Spanish language.
In English, description is my strong element or I think so.
Don't matter what, just WRITE!

I think I'm better at discribing things. Which includes sight, touch, sounds, etc. Which sometimes I get over exagerated and over discribe everything. So maybe that's a flaw??

I once got 100% for a ballad that my teacher couldn't make head nor tail of because it had beautiful imagery .
In short anything but plot. I have several really good character/theme/setting stories, but none of them have half-decent plots.

Dialogue because I'm not so good at anything else! HA
Plus, I really like to listen when people talk, and I feel as thought I have a grasp on how different personalities and people display themselves by the way they talk.

Dialogue or Action/Pace. Anything exciting. :D

Personally I use "Dialogue" because it's an easy motor to most of my plot lines and character development. Also, I think it's one of my strong points and I've always thought it a good thing to stick to my strong points, so my personal opinion is that, definitely in my own case, Dialogue's the strongest element. ;)
