This week's question for RTW:
"What are your writing superpowers? What's your kryptonite?"
The answers for both of these questions come so easily. I have a couple superpowers: I write really fast. Seriously. I'm a plotter, so when I sit down to write, I pretty much know what I'm doing, and I can bust out a 1,700-2,200 word chapter in about an hour or less. When I encounter a block, I usually just flip to another project. I know it takes other writers longer time to get that word count, so I know I'm lucky. Of course the downside to this superpower is that I generally spend a little longer on revisions, but that's okay, because the process works for me.
My second super-power is critiquing. I think I've gotten really good at reading other's work and seeing what's working and what's not, with a perspective that I could never have with my own work. I really enjoy doing it, so much that I have to stop myself from critiquing finished books that I read!
As for my kryptonite, that's easy. Summarizing my work. I can't write a synopsis to save my life, and I know that writing a query is going to be agonizing for me, because I will go through many drafts to get it right. I know that about myself, so I'm giving myself months to get a query in shape before I actually hit start sending them.
What about you?
