Q: What is your favorite part of writing?

A: At the craft level, I really enjoy writing dialogue. On a macro level, my favorite part is having created stories that my friends (and people like them) enjoy reading. If I hadn’t written them, they’re probably stories I would enjoy reading, too. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of hair-pulling involved in the final product, and I need some distance before I can try to appreciate the result.

If you consider reading to be a part of writing, then I like that a whole lot, too.

My least-favorite part, not that you asked, is fixing plot holes.
