30 Days of Writing Meme - Days 9-11  
I've been slacking, so here is three for all to read.

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.

How?  I don't know.  When something comes to mind, I just picture someone as them and let them grow.  Then I do research on the era and add it to my daydream, and it just appears...

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts!

Nothing on the origina fic front and nothing on the fandom front.  I'm pretty boring to say the least.

11. Who is your favorite character to write? Least favorite?

Fandom:  My female Doctor from my A Different Kind of Regeneration series.  I've been twisting that character from canon so much that I'm fascinated where I can go next!

Original:  Right now, I am currently in the process of developing the character of Haidee, a young Trojan girl who is captured by the Greeks and given to Odysseus (my fave Greek myth character).  She has been fun to develop - probably will be a cross between me and three other people I know.

12. In what story did you feel you did the best job of worldbuilding? Any side-notes on it you'd like to share?
13. What's your favorite culture to write, fictional or not?
14. How do you map out locations, if needed? Do you have any to show us?
15. Midway question! Tell us about a writer you admire, whether professional or not!
16. Do you write romantic relationships? How do you do with those, and how “far” are you willing to go in your writing? ;)
17. Favorite protagonist and why!
18. Favorite antagonist and why!
19. Favorite minor that decided to shove himself into the spotlight and why!
20. What are your favorite character interactions to write?
21. Do any of your characters have children? How well do you write them?
22. Tell us about one scene between your characters that you've never written or told anyone about before! Serious or not.
23. How long does it usually take you to complete an entire story—from planning to writing to posting (if you post your work)?
24. How willing are you to kill your characters if the plot so demands it? What's the most interesting way you've killed someone?
25. Do any of your characters have pets? Tell us about them.
26. Let's talk art! Do you draw your characters? Do others draw them? Pick one of your OCs and post your favorite picture of him!
27. Along similar lines, do appearances play a big role in your stories? Tell us about them, or if not, how you go about designing your characters.
28. Have you ever written a character with physical or mental disabilities? Describe them, and if there's nothing major to speak of, tell us a few smaller ones.
29. How often do you think about writing? Ever come across something IRL that reminds you of your story/characters?
30. Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer and/or about one of his/her characters!
