1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview Me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others asking to be interviewed comment, you will ask them 5 questions.
1. ever written a screenplay? if so, what was it about? if not, why not? ("cuz I never thought of it" or "it's not my thing" is an acceptable answer if no, but details are preferred if possible.)
Not yet. I've written plays, but not for the screen. I've thought about it though, and probably will at some point in my life. Is "I will eventually" an acceptable "why not?"
2. if it rained your favorite candy for a full hour one day a year.. what day would it be, and what kind of candy would be falling from the skies?
Hmm, I'm not sure if I have a favorite candy, but if it's going to rain candy, I'd better pick something that won't kill too many people on the way down. Melted chocolate would be nice, as long as it's not burning hot, or cotton candy. Do you have any idea how messy the world would be if it rained any kind of candy for an hour? Not to mention the town in that "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" book where it always rained food. I think I'll go with melted chocolate in the middle of July (we'll say the 15th) because there are no real candy-crazed holidays that I know of around that time of year. Anyone caught in that downpour would look like Augustus Gloop.
3. what is the most difficult thing, for you, about writing?
Rewriting and editing my own material. When I get critiques and comments, I usually only apply them to the story if I need to turn it in or want to publish it. Otherwise I leave the story as is and apply the comments to the next thing I write. I don't really mind rewriting and stuff like that, it's just a lot more work than getting the original material out on paper. And I'm lazy like that.
4. what is your favorite movie genre?
'80s fantasy and tranny musicals
5. flamewars (over anything--political, religious, or whatever): lots of fun to watch or nothing but stress to deal with?
BITCH BITCH BITCH. If they're amusing or contain outrageous Monty Python Frenchman-style insults, I get a kick out of them, but otherwise, it's a lot of bitchy drama. Flame wars just produce a lot of tension and hatred, never really solve anything, and nobody ever convinces the other side to agree with them.
Every time I see one, I think, don't you people have better things to do with your time? Like, uh, play video games?
