Typewriter - tell me about it
In this case from pretzelcoatl.

Ask me either a broad question (i.e 'who is your cruelest character?', 'what is your most optimistic story?') or a specific question/request ('what world does ___ come from?', 'tell me about ___') and I will answer you. Or you can ask meta- questions like 'what was the inspiration for creating ____?'

And from bodhifox:

Before the end of 2009 you and I should ____________!

Before the end of 2010 you and I and your other knitting friends should do a knitalong!

You pick the project. And I gave us another year 'cuz I I'm going to have trouble finishing my Christmas knitting as it is.

I'm up for that! We should vote on what project, though...

Works for me.

1. How do you handle writing stories about the characters in your brain? Do things 'Just Happen', or do they cue you in to plots as stories progress?
(I have characters that just do whatever, whenever. No plot. Just present and past tense shananigans, kind of like you'd view a friend living their life. Very maddening at times.)

2. One day, I'd like to have coffee or tea with you in a general public setting, with mutual friends, because I'm extremely shy and self conscious. Just to get to know you a bit, as a 'normal' human.

1. It's a little bit of both. I know what's going to happen, but they sometimes surprise me as to *how*. And sometimes they phrase things in ways that make me go "wait a minute..." and the there is another subplot.

2. That would be nifty. :)

Question: How significant (if at all) is religion in Shayara?

(Moving it to the end of 2010) Before the end of 2010 you and I should ride the Portland Aerial Tram. On the outside, 'cause we're HARDCORE like that. ;-)

Really, you should visit. I like more people to experience Portland. And it's an easy train trip from here to Seattle (to Vancouver, B.C., too).

(Code repaired!)

In Shayara, there are three gods; the gods abandoned the Dasaroi after the Fall.

Or so it's said.

Other religions exist in Shayara, because people come to the city from the outside world. So there are characters who were raised Jewish or Christian or Muslim or Buddhist or just about anything. And those faiths are not incompatible with the Dasaroi faith in that those three gods are the gods of the Dasaroi, and humans have gods too; no one is pure Dasaroi anymore, everyone's part-human.

I'll be in California next summer, and may take the train up to Seattle and Portland if I've time and money. The call for crashspace will go out when I'm certain.

Thank you. I think I'd heard you speak about religion in Shayara, but wasn't sure.

And good to hear about the nascent California plans. Would that be your first time on the actual West Coast?

First time since I was 10. :) Never been up to Oregon or Washington, though!

Meet for coffee and maybe have me shamelessly flirt with you since I realize I get a certain joy from being nice females like that even when neither of us have intentions to fall into each others' beds.

Before the end of 2009 you and I should be friends. :)

Also, are you doing NaNo this year?

Nope! Never do.
