Topic: Themes in Writing

  • Oct. 26th, 2007 at 10:31 AM
There's a meme that's been doing the rounds that ties in nicely with a topic I'd like to bring up:

Meme: What would you say are the trademarks of my writing? What themes or quirks or turns of phrase have you noticed? What is it that makes a story by me -- well, a story by me?

So to turn that around: what are the trademarks of your writing? Are there any themes you find running through your work, and if so do they cross pairings and fandoms?

Should really answer my own question, shouldn't I?

Stuff I write a lot - slice-of-life comedy, usually with comedy aliens, that might veer into angst for a moment and then back again. Companions post-Doctor having terrific, exciting, fulfilled lives and not being ruined by him (all apart from Susan, strangely enough, but that's because along with comedy aliens I like the idea of the alienness of people who look just like us and the potential angst and even horror in that. I'm a bit addicted to that idea of her as 'unearthly'.) Serious introspective stuff of mine tends to be present tense, so much so I've started deliberately writing it in past tense just to be different.
