I might do these every week just to get some insight on everyone or just have a quick laugh. This weeks question is, “What is your best trait when writing RP’s?” If you don’t know how to respond to that I’ll show you. For example, I think that my best trait when RPing is really just storytelling. I love writing stories and creating a new world in a way. I like to write my RP’s in a way that people can understand, and even though e fedding is all fantasy based, I write my RP’s to somehow give exaggerated examples of real life. With my latest RP it was based around how even though Scott was caused so much pain by Kennedy, he still cherished the memories they shared. We all have that type of person in our lives. In other RP’s, I talk about how Scott thinks he’s being pushed down in WCF by the higher ups. That is something I think we all can understand, whether it’s at work, school, at one point you feel that someone, but you don’t what, is holding you back, or you holding you behind. With that said, what is your guys best trait when RPing?
I feel like my best trait is character development. I've helped create other characters for people and I know how to develop a character through out time. So if there has to be changes to push that character to new heights, or to cross line that shouldn't be crossed I can do that, and essentially be the same character and keep track of that.
I wish I had the faintest of what my best trait is. Constantly surprised by the fact that people will like an RP haha, but something I really like tackling is prose. If I can play with language enough to properly convey the way a character perceives something, that makes me feel accomplished.
I'm not saying that to be modest or anything, but when it comes to writing I find that my main focus is on creating a comprehensive shoot centered around a particular setpiece that often serves as a metaphor, such as Teo tossing himself off a building to represent his fearlessness this week.
I guess if you put a gun to my head I would go with what Singh said a while ago about dramatics lol. I do always try and write every match like it's the most important thing in the world to Teo, not only because it helps the drama but also because I imagine it really would be the most important thing for Teo on any given week. He is someone who is 100% dedicated to wrestling and that is how I set his personality.
Meandering way of saying I'm not sure I guess lol.

Aside from the comedic notes I sprinkle throughout my work, I also have a habit of layering references into most of what I write. Some are obvious, some require a bit of background knowledge on my older work, and some are so esoteric most people would need to have them pointed out. Anything from a throwaway line to an entire scene could be a reference or homage to something.
At the other end of the spectrum, my worst trait when writing is accessibility. My lore is pretty dense, and I'm not very good at making it easy for new readers to figure out what the Hell is going on.
John Gable: Hey, Seth. I won't pretend to know what is going on but if you ever see this. I would just like to ask if you could at least grant access to the RP boards. I really like reading old RPs. They mean a lot to me. I put a lot of work into them.

John Gable: And there is a friend I have been wanting to show them to because they want to read them as well. So, it would mean a lot to me that, if you see this, you could open of the RP boards again just so I could see it. If it isn't any trouble.
