What kind of writer are you?

October 21, 2014

What kind of fiction writer are you?

You’re an ocean swimmer:

The literary ocean is big enough for everyone. You don’t see other writers as competition, but rather fellow swimmers, and you’re always ready to reach out and help others stay afloat.

You probably believe that there are plenty of readers out there, so all you need is luck and skill and hard work to find your niche and make your writing dreams happen. You might sometimes feel overwhelmed by the size of the ocean and get a little lost in stormy weather, but you’ll always stay afloat and keep on swimming.

Your greatest advantage is your belief in yourself as a writer, which enables you to overcome any obstacles in your way.

How much of a grammar hawk are you?

October 14, 2014

How much of a grammar hawk are you?

Grammar hawkish:

You notice grammar frequently, but it’s not the end all and be all for you. You want the standards of language to be followed and you gently correct people who go astray. You believe that chaos cannot reign. You’re like, “C’mon I’ve got some pet peeves, but who doesn’t?”

I’m too aware that my own grammar isn’t always perfect to be pedantic about other people’s.
