1. What gender of character do you play more of, male or female? Why?

I happen to have more female primary characters. I say primary because with my OCs and even the canon characters I pick up, I try to write them as a whole person with friends, family, random whonots in their daily lives. This means I write secondary and tertiary characters as well, much as you would for a novel. These beings do not exist in a void. So for example, I have Pippa here. I also write Mike, Alessandro, Marcello and in some instances I will pick up Rory who is someone else's muse altogether to write a prompt or a scene. In terms of the types of voices I will write, I'd say it's about 50/50. Break it down by primaries and most are female.

2. Is this different or the same as your own gender?

Same, with the same caveat as above.Read more )

Pippa sat on the cold stone floor studying her creation—if a pile of fine-grained sand, scattered and fanned over marble could be called a creation. She was thinking. Searching: for inspiration, a clue, the secret still lurking inside the silica yet to be whispered to her by the muse in her artist’s soul. It still wouldn’t come to her. The redhead waited but not with patience. Bare feet slid into the rough grit, fingers caressed the moveable surface, digging trenches and weaving patterns.

It was in there, she could sense it. There was a masterpiece waiting for her. A concept that once found would bowl her over and feed her starving, idle talent and drive her past the point of reason until Pippa managed to bring it to life. It was there, just beyond the limits of her reach. What was it, why couldn’t she find it within herself to lean forward, stretch that little bit more and take hold of it?

She clenched a fistful of sand in the palm of her hand, squeezed until her knuckles turned white and the pressure created a burning heat, a stabbing pain where the sand dug itself uncomfortably into her skin. If sheer force of will were enough to jog that part of her being loose, she’d have her image ready to work from. If only it were that easy. If only…
