My old writing coach is writing a book about writing and “voice.” She has a chapter she is currently working on about “the storytelling impulse as an element of voice.” She sent her current and former students/clients a questionnaire. I just sent my answers off to her, and thought I’d put them in here as well for posterity’s sake.
I was peeking through the referring URLs to ATPo this morning and found this link:

Masq’s Brain: So I had a thought.
Hands: Oh-oh. You know what happens when she has thoughts.

Masq’s Brain: Thirty O.F. drabbles in thirty days. NaDraWriMo. If ann1962 can do poetry, we can do drabbles. All we need is some decent writing prompts.
Masq’s Brain: They could be about anything. Any characters, any mythologies or worlds I can dream up. And they can suck! As long as we’re writing original fic.
Big Toe: Yay!
Nether-regions (to Toe): Oh, go exercise or something.
Masq’s Brain: And we wouldn’t have to share them with our friends unless we–
Big Toe: Can’t resist showing off! Yay!
Hands: I suppose I’ll have to do the actual work. *Sigh* And after cleaning and redecorating your apartment all weekend!
Nether-regions: Looks spiffy, though. Like a real person lives here, and not an oblivious armchair potato.
Masq: So it’s a plan, then. Along with Angel 6.16, 6.17, and TD 2.01…..
