Finishing a story, obviously. Everything else is a pain in the butt. Coming up with an idea is also pretty cool.
there are many problems in our times
but none of them are mine

Hmm... I really can't pick. I like creating the character, scheming, and creating my own little world... ><;
I want to do many, many things with my life, but I'm way too scared to really say. Writing, I guess is a way of being able to so all the things I want and not worry about being hurt.

Creating Characters - it's the best part because I love having people in my mind! ^^ Not to mention you get to explore so many things, and they become so real. I absolutely hate plotting - but I adore my characters.

I like doing research because I'm a dreamer and have a hard time making small talk. Nothing says good small talk like, "did you know that the horse and the color purple are associated with the sin of pride?"

It helps me to tie my story to my life. I think otherwise I might just float away into space.

Meow's favorite part? Creating her own world and escaping the dreadful horror of everyday life. In Meow's world, every day is an adventure and you never know what will happen next.

Also, there are dragons. That's just too good to miss.

Meow likes to create characters as much as the next person, but it's creating the world around them that she finds most enjoyable. What would your first reaction be if you were suddenly dupped into a different world? Would that world be beautiful and fun and totally sweet? Would it be dark, horrifying and mysterious? Would it be romantic? Hilarious? A dream come true? Would it be a world much like this one, yet completely the opposite? What kind of world would you create? The only limit is that of the language you speak! How awesome is that?! Meow thinks it not only rocks, it RULES. That's the awesomeness of creating your own virtual cyberspace.

Those are Meow's thoughts anyway...

I said the charecters, but it's more then that. It's putting yourself in to the shoes of the charecters and seeing how they handled it and how you would have done it.

Description is the thing for me. Like really expoling a moment in all its detail

I love the fact that I can make anything up, and when other people read it, they get lost in my world.

I love the fact that I can have that effect on people when they read my work.

Many people write to further a cause, to become famous, or even to impress girls, but I write simply because I love it. So this was a very tough question to answer, but I have to say that my favorite part is creating my own world. I love the plain imagining that it involves. There are no restrictions but for the limits of the human mind! I find that more than cool.

Plotting and Scheming definately :P I love working out a plot, and then turning one character - who was supposed to be good - into some insane maniac from the planet zogg!
