30 Days of Writing: Wrapping Up

Thirty days and not-quite-thirty posts later, here we are:

30. Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer and/or about one of his/her characters!

Long-time readers will know that I don't do meme tagging (although I will usually carry a meme forward if tagged by another, unless I have absolutely no interest), and I'm not about to start here, especially not with a meme that carries as much of a commitment as this one. That said, I'd be thrilled to see any of the writers on my list tackle it. I've found it a pretty valuable experience, making me think about aspects of writing I don't often think about and almost never talk about any more. Back when I first got involved in fandom, it seemed like the folks on my flist got into discussions about writing and process on a regular basis, and I always thought that was useful, for ideas on how to do better, and reassurance that writers I admired had trouble sometimes, too. Though there are people who disparage the "writing workshop" model of fandom, and I can understand in theory that not everyone who writes for fun wants to be a better writer, one of the things that I love about my corner of fandom is that it is a community of writers, and of people who take writing (or whatever artform(s) they practice) seriously even if they aren't professionals or aspiring to be.

30 Days of Writing: Complete list of questions

And so ends the 30 Days of Writing journey. Thanks to everyone who came on it with me! If nothing else, I have enjoyed getting back into the habit of daily posting (or near-daily, anyway), so you may be seeing more of me than you used to.
