Which Type of Writer Are You?
“The last time she was up here, she had been... staring up at the sky and dreaming of stars. Now, she looked down and plotted flames.” ~ Kiersten White, And I Darken
You’ve got your head in the clouds, and this is a strength — whether you recreate moments in history, foreign lands, or design your own fantasy universe, you use your imagination to immerse your readers in setting and the experiences of your characters.
“The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.” ~ Jean-Paul Sartre
Whether you write fiction or non-fiction, your strength lies in the ability to channel your life experiences, or those of others into your writing. You learn from memorable events, which adds richness to your writing and the lives of your characters.
“When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.” ~ Ernest Hemingway
Your greatest strength lies in your ability to create realistic characters that will not be forgotten. By focusing on character development, you delve deep into the emotions, relationships, and life experiences of your characters.
“Plot is no more than footprints left in the snow after your characters have run by on their way to incredible destinations.” ~ Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
Your greatest strength lies in your ability to create a memorable plot that draws readers in. Whether you write mysteries or adventure novels, space operas or stories that take your characters around the world, your writing keeps readers engaged from start to finish.
