What Type of Writer Are You?

I found this quiz on Shelley's blog, and as I'm always up for a bit of procrastination, I gave it a whirl. Yay! I love the answer I got!

This minor procrastination aside, I have been very good today on the writing front (despite the temperature hitting 32, with threats of rising to 39 degrees tomorrow...feels like the inside of an oven). But, back to the writing - I'm trying something new for me. Something I always said I would never do (which means of course it was only a matter of time before I succumbed!!) I'm not sure whether or not I can pull it off, but I'll see how I go this week. It's a story that haunted me for something like five years - but it was never novel length, just this one very vivid, starkly beautiful scene. I ended up writing it about three years ago and there it's been on my hard drive ever since.

So, I'm giving it a revamp. So to speak!



You Should Be a Film Writer

You don't just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.
You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.
Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.
And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!

Christina,
i just submitted a poem to the australian literary review; it was based on the overly expensive toys in a toy catalogue as opposed to the things we made do with in the past; i expect it will be rejected; have you had much success in being published locally?

Christina - we can be film writers together ;-)
Send some sunshine our way please. I'm meant to be going kayaking on Friday and don't fancy doing it in the rain!

Paul, best of luck with your poetry sub! And I must admit, I've not submitted anything within Australia. I'm targetting US and UK agents/publishers.

Shelley, I'm sending sunshine your way as we *speak*! And wow, kayaking. Have a fantastic time!
