maculategiraffe | Writing from the hips
I guess my point is that I think "id fic" is a good description of what doesn't work about Stephanie Meyer's work, on a literary level and even for a lot of her fans who are disappointed in Breaking Dawn-- but I also think it sort of unfairly maligns the id, which is a really important element in fiction and which should be listened to. Just not obeyed implicitly, yanno? You should write from the hips, but you shouldn't stop there; you should write from the hips on up.

cupidsbow: 'Clichés and the id: a map to fictional seduction' by cupidsbow
Something I've been mulling over for many years now, is how the lizard brain influences writing. Over the last few months several things have fallen into place, and I can finally express my ideas about the power of clichés and the importance of the id.

ellen_fremedon: Slash shock, shamelessness, and a rec.
Because pro writers either have some shame, and relegate the purest, most cracklicious iterations of those stories to drawerfic that their workshop buddies will never see, or else they're shameless. But they usually have to be shameless alone-- and so their versions are written so solitarily that they don't have any voice of restraint, to pull them back from the Event Horizon of the Id Vortex when it starts warping their story mechanics.
