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

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

psychopaths and mystery writers.

I'm the kind that pays better.

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. ;)

It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle. The door opened on to a tube-shaped hall like a tunnel: a very comfortable tunnel without smoke, with panelled walls, and floors tiled and carpeted, provided with polished chairs, and lots and lots of pegs for hats and coats—the hobbit was fond of visitors. The tunnel wound on and on, going fairly but not quite straight into the side of the hill —The Hill, as all the people for many miles round called it—and many little round doors opened out of it, first on one side and then on another.
