Q: What kind of pieces are the most fun to write (action, lyrical, etc.)?
A: I like to write “character” scenes, but that gets me across the borders and into action scenes, lyrical scenes, sitting-and-contemplating scenes, the lot. Any time you’re showing someone active in a story, you’re building up who and what they are, even if it’s only in the smallest way. So (just to tread on my own toes) I probably find action scenes the most fun to write because you’re revealing someone in extremis, and that’s when they can prove your expectations or be the most surprising.
