Day 20 – Do you ever get bunnied inspired from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?

Visual art, most definitely. I'm not an artist, and I'm incredibly visually oriented so it's VERY easy to trigger bunnies this way. Ridiculously easy. I mean, didn't we all do this as kids? See a picture and make up stories about what was happening in it, or what had happened, or what was to come? I used to imagine getting sucked into pictures all the time (anybody who knew me before I started writing fanfic would not have been surprised by Rhapsody AT ALL, lol). That's one reason why I have such a hard time resisting those reverse art-athons where you get to pick a banner or wallpaper or something and write something based on it.

Other stories, that's more gray. I do my best to turn off the what if part of my brain when I read because I know what it's like to have your stories and ideas stolen from you. However, it does happen occasionally, but I rarely, rarely act on them. There is one very specific time I did, though, and I was upfront when I started posting the story. When I read elsaf's A Cricket in California, I fell in love with the idea of a Buffy/William story. It gnawed at me a long time, because I adored William so much in Elsa's work. I finally came up with the idea for Legions of True Hearts and away it went. I made sure to credit her when I started posting, too, because even though our stories have almost nothing in common except William, it was the whole reason I bunnied on it in the first place. Plus, Elsa's is a wonderful story. I wanted more people to read it. :)

21 – Sequels – Have you ever written a sequel to a story you wrote, and if so, why, and if not, how do you feel about sequels?

22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your story? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?

25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your story? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?

26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a story?

27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?
