I put Characterisation because I kind of suck at most of the other options.

Characterisation without a doubt.
There's always been a lot of tension between Lois and me, and it's not so much that I want to kill her, it's just, I want her to not be alive anymore.

Description, perhaps, although I've been told I can write realistic dialogue. My trouble is plot holes. They keep on popping up in the most awkward places.

I've no idea. Seriously, I don't know what I'm best at but for anyone who's read my work, feel free to tell me.

God, this is difficult. I'm not particularly good at anything, but I don't suck at them either. Well, if I had to decide I'd have to say ACTION and CONFLICT. For some reason battle sense always came easy for me and I know how to create tension between characters.
I will always fight back, no matter what.

I guess you could say I was better at plot, but I'm not so sure....

I'd like to think I'm more rounded out, you know? Kinda good at everything, kinda not. *tries to make sense*

I'm the same as kitty15- I have noooo clue. Maybe characterization? But at the same time, if that were true I think the character profile I wrote up for my main character would be more detailed than it was. x.x

You don't know, Kit? I'd say plot is your greatest strength, with language being a close second. Tough call, though.This is hard...

I'm best at description, because I love how it sounds when something is described beautifully. Words seem like a painting when you do it right, and I love creating different ideas by describing. It's practically an art form.

I'm best at the action, because that is what makes up a story. Who wants to read a story with no good action? That's where I come in. .

And Lini chan, I love your avartar.. Wicked Rules!
Just write -- the rest of life will follow.

Would love help on this.

truthfully, i've gotten so much better at all of them. i've started keeping a notebook full of my characters personalities and such, along with story lines and plot twists. it's helped so much.

but i put descriptions. :D

....I'd say characterisation with dialogue coming close second but I can get lazy. While my Mcs are pretty solid, good three dimensional characters (or so I've been told), I tend to have rather bland one chapter appearance characters as I can't be bothered toplan them out for just one chapter. Should probably start working on that. ^_^

Description all the way! I despise having to write conversations, so no dialogue for me (which one may notice when one reads my ficiton ^.^) I have no idea about themes, if they appear they appear, yay. So on so forth. The only thing I really love is description, if you don't feel as though you are there then I haven't done my job ^.^
I like you as an enemy, but I love you as a friend.
