    Mushy love scenes. Not necessarily sex scenes - although I wish I could write them well also - but romantic fluffy sort of scenes. I write romance stories but when it comes to the romance I fail.

    Chaptered stories. Oneshots work for me, but I can never commit to something chaptered. I wish I had the time and energy to really come up with a great plot and story, but it just never works.

    I guess I just want to be a better writer in general, but I'd especially like to pull off kind of psychological horror kind of things. I absolutely love that kind of shit. Also, I'd like to get more comfortable with writing sex scenes and fight scenes (like aggressive, beat you into the ground type fights) and pull them off, y'know?

    I'm also working on technical things like foreshadowing in stories and plot twists and just...realism, I guess.
    I want the things I write to be brutally honest; no fluff. It's kinda hard to write like that and I admire everyone and anyone that can pull those things off without a problem. But I'm working on it...

    I really wish I could write my two favorite genres.

    Fantasy and Sci-Fi.

    I love them so much, and I applaud authors that flawlessly can write about superheroes and aliens, etc.
    I have so many ideas, but I never know how to write them down on paper without making them sound stupid.

    I wish I could write horror that is actually scary, but I wouldn't even know where to begin.

    Really emotional pieces that make readers cry or make their chests ache.

    Little, short, silly drabble pieces (I always end up with piece longer than I want).

    I wish that I could write romance! I seriously can't begin to write a story about people falling in love it just sounds corny when I do it.

    I wish I could write horror. I love being scared and I love scaring others.
    Non-genre wise, I wish I could just write better when it came to detail. Either I get way too detailed or not detailed enough.

    I have this roleplay I've been doing for a year and a half now. I've said on multiple occasions I wanted to write a story off of it. But I don't know how to start. So I wish I could write that

    One shots. I'm serious about this... I can't seem to do them no matter how hard I try. I know that if I could write them, it would make me more capable of finishing things. Other things I wish I could write about would be other disabilities other than autism. I have the hardest time writing dyslexia or down syndrome or even just the typical speech problems as well. I've tried so many times to research this. I've also tried writing it on my own and trying to just wing it... yet it always leads to a huge disaster for me. ;o;

    @ The Real Mitt Romney
    SAME!
    Writing hetero for me is like trying to get me to write an entire story in a language I don't know how to speak lmfao

    I wish I could be more detailed in my writing. I always feel like my stories are so rushed because I don't detail everything the way that I'm imagining it in my head. I guess I always think, "oh, I'm imagining this scene like this in my head, so everyone else should get the same idea as me even though I'm lacking detail about it."

    I'm working on it though!

    Third-person POV. I might have to try it out for a story in the future, since I'm not sure first person suits it so well, but it's tough when you're used to first person! XD

    Fantasy. I love fantasy so much, and I've tried a lot—and I mean a lot—and I'm still trying (because I'm stubborn), but it never comes as effortlessly as other things. It's the whole world-building thing, I swear. Fantasy authors make it seem so easy.

    I'm not completely terrible at it, but I wish I was better at comedy because I definitely feel a bit weak at it. I also wish I was better at horror, but I'm generally weak at it as well. I'm also super weak at writing anything that's "normal", like no supernatural, fantastical, science-fiction-y, etc. type elements in it. I generally can only do the occasional one-shot that's like that, and like I kinda wish I was better at it, but at the same time I've also accepted that writing weird shit is just what I do and part of who I am so yeah. XD
    I also wish I were better at descriptions. I'm not terrible at them, but it probably shows in my writing that I favor dialogue and like introspection into characters' thoughts and stuff like that over physical descriptions of anything at all. Facepalm

    Also, I wish I could write poetry besides haiku at all well. Facepalm I mean, at least I'm decent at haiku, which is my favorite, but I'd love to be able to write other forms of poetry without generally sucking at it.

    Oh, and story summaries. Facepalm Ugh. I'm so bad at them, and I wish so much I could be good at them!
