So, you want to know what my writing superpower is?
Hang on for a sec while I find my spandex super-suit with the big blue 'W' on the chest and check the tag. I threw it in the laundry because it was all covered in ink after my most recent epic battle with my NaNoWriMo project.
I write wonderful description that brings life to my work and color the the world I am creating. It gives brilliancy to the people that wander across the stage of my story and meaning to their actions. It draws out the beauty from the mundane and calls to the readers attention the smallest and most important of things. I bravely battle the Ever-Encroaching Void with color and detail. Good description must always prevail!
Also, Susan tells me I am a pretty awesome beta-reader/critique partner.
As for my kryptonite. . .Well, sometimes its possible to have “too much of a good thing.” Sometimes my powerful weapon, the description, exceeds its carefully controlled bounds and turns on me. It eats up my people and my plot until my characters just sit around describing the beautiful and detailed scenery to each other. Sort of like Odysseus's men on the Island of the Lotus Eaters. I don't want any Lotus Eaters in my story. I must remember only to use my power for the forces of good and never for evil. I must never describe anything to death, because that would be a cruel and horrible fate.
Death by Description.
