Yes, you in back. Put that hand up.
Like most artistic folk, writers are particularly hard on themselves, especially when it comes to nitpicking imperfection. The wonderful Tara is currently hosting The Self Lovin' Bloghop so that we can recognize our strong aspects and realize that we don't all-around suck. Which trust me, is useful. Be sure to check out the other posts and get in on the action yourself, the hop is running through Friday!
Now, as for what I do well? Well, I can brew a killer cup of coffee. Before you say that doesn't count, I've had many a coffee-fueled late night writing sessions, so I'd rank coffee brewing fairly high on my "Does Well" list.
But seriously, I tend to write nice side-characters. The main character's best friend, the barista steaming some milk, the photographer with a bit of a zany side. I find that I have to work very hard on my main characters, but the side characters, the ones who help cushion the world inside my novels and make them real are the ones who come easy. Always real and sometimes a little zany (but who doesn't know a few oddballs around them?), they are definitely my strong suit.
What have you found to be your strongest writing skill?
