Also a meme

Dear anon who gifted me with a fruit plate, I have my suspicions of who you are, but thank you so much regardless. You're pretty great too.

Taken from britomart_is even though I'm a dick and couldn't think of anything to ask her. When I think about this meme, I'm starting to think I'm not a terribly active reader. Ooops, apparently I fail at fifth grade.

I think it would be fun to talk about stories, but the usual memes are like, "What happens next?" "Tell me about Character A?" Which isn't so much talking about stories as it is writing more of a story. But you know how sometimes you read something and you're like, "I got ___ out of this story, I wonder if I have that right?" or "What on earth was ____ supposed to be?" and it's too awkward to ask the author? Now you could totally ask!

I've heard people say that writing is hard because you have to make decisions, but we never really talk about the decisions we make with stories or why we make them. We talk about plot bunnies, but not about how we actually turn them into a story.

So, if you wanted, ask me questions!

What were you trying to do [here]? Why did you decide to ____? This is what I thought about xyz, is that what you were going for? What made you write ____? Why did you decide to do this? And so on.


ETA: you can totally ask me about what happens next and about Character A. I love to talk.
