Mème à fanfics - jour 16

16 – Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

Alors, je suis neutre par rapport aux résumés, je n'adore pas, je ne déteste pas. Sur ffnet, j'en mets, bien sûr, mais c'est très basique, ça décrit juste les personnages et la situation, et l'idée du scénario dans les rares cas où il y en a un.
Sur LJ, je me suis mise à en écrire récemment, parce qu'on m'a dit que c'était utile.

Il y a quelques fois où ça m'a désespérée, c'est des cas de "mais comment je fais pour résumer cette fic exactement sans spoiler la série ? Et je n'ai pas envie de spoiler la série dans des posts hors-cut / dans des authors alerts que tout le monde va recevoir".



01 – How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?
02 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.
03 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?
04 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?
05 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?
06 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?
07 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?
08 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.
09 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?
10 – Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?
11 – Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?
12 – Have you ever attempted an "adaptation" fic of a favorite book or movie but set in a different fandom?
13 – Do you prefer canon or fanon when you write? Has writing fanfic for a fandom changed the way you see some or even all of the original source material?
14 – Ratings – how high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?
15 – Warnings – What do you feel it most important to warn for, and what's the strangest thing you've warned for in a fic?
17 – Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?
18 – Where do you get the most inspiration for your fics (aka "bunnies") from?
19 – When you have bunnies, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?
20 –Do you ever get bunnied from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?
21 – Sequels – Have you ever written a sequel to a fic you wrote, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?
22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?
23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?
24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?
25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?
26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a fic?
27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?
28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?
29 – Do you have a favorite fic you've written? What makes it your favorite? And don't forget to give us a link!
30 – What is your current project or projects?
