What's fascinating about my writing is that the most prominent aspect people comment on is my description (or illustrations if there are any). Not the characters or story. Which fascinates me since 1. one the earliest lesson I got from another potential writer was: show don't tell so I spend an inordinate amount of time working on my description, and 2. some of my favorite stories have simple or straight-forward characters (e.g. fairy tales, mythology, heck even One Piece to an extent*). So it's interesting that my characters are less dynamic than my description or scene-setting.

I'm thinking I might want to spend some time crunching down on characterization-in-writing. (Not necessarily character-building, but conveying strong characters in words.)

*by that I mean, there's established traits that help define the main cast
