1 and 16 :D
1. Describe yourself how you would describe a character you’re introducing.

She was a rather short and chubby girl with long brown hair and thick black glasses. Her hair was in a messy braid, and she still wore the Batgirl pajama pants and Stark Industries t-shirt she'd gone to bed in the night before. She had the look of the chronically exhausted and overly stressed.

16. Do you have structured ideas of how your story is supposed to go, or make it up as you write?

Used to I would make it up as I went along, but recently I've been going for a more structure approach. I usually write up a bullet point outline that gives me a general idea of what's going to happen so I can refer to it later on. A lot of the times I forget and start veering off or something else comes up that works better than what I outlined, but it's nice to have :)
5 & 15!
5. How many words can you write if you sit down and concentrate intensely for an hour?

If I could, which is a big if bc I tend to write in short distracted bursts, then I'd say maybe 1-1.5k? I know I've done almost 500 in 20-30 minutes so.

15. Your guilty writing pleasure?

Aaaangst. Kind of funny since I don't like reading it, but I really love killing characters and making people mourn them, having characters raped and leaving them mentally/physically devastated, and just having characters being emotionally broken. One of my fave fics I've written is a character spiraling into depression and committing suicide after a canonical character death so. I try to feel bad about it but... XD
I feel ya about the angst, though. I enjoy writing it, though I always try to end on a moderately happy note... :D
I can't even claim I try to leave it on a moderately happy note. I tend to just leave it where everyone is broken and the reader is probably crying lol
