What type of writer should you be?

You Should Be A Poet

You craft words well, in creative and unexpected ways.
And you have a great talent for evoking beautiful imagery…
Or describing the most intense heartbreak ever.
You’re already naturally a poet, even if you’ve never written a poem.

What Type of Writer Should You Be?

Another fun quiz over at Blogthings. I must admit, I was expecting more of an SF or slipstream response… but ah well, who am I to argue? I’m a poet as well. πŸ˜‰

  1. i took the test before, and i should be a film writer apparently.

    i have not written anything fictional on my own since my teenage years, unless required to for a class. so much for my creative dramatic tendencies!

    CJ: You know, I could see that, sulz. You’ve got quite a visual way of writing and you tell a good story in your blogs. Maybe you could be the next Nora Ephron! πŸ™‚

    I think the strangest result I’ve had for one of these quizes was one for if you’re a PC or a Mac. I got Linux. How does that work? πŸ˜‰

  2. i don’t know what’s the “visual way of writing” you’re talking about, lol. stories that are all true, so no drop of creativity there! (okay, embellishments are a form of creativity, but still.) never read ephron’s book before, but i’ll check it out.

    beats me; i actually thought linux was a porn site when i first heard it years ago!! πŸ˜†

    CJ: Well, with visual writing I mean that I can picture exactly what you mean when you say it; you’re very evocative as a blogger, so I can imagine your writing being like that too. Plus true stories are the hardest to write! But hey, you’d know better than me. πŸ˜€

    And Nora Ephron is a screenwriter/director, btw; she did Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally. πŸ™‚

  3. oh goat, i need to look up what ‘evocative’ means in the dictionary, heh. oh, true stories can be pretty hard to write; that’s why am not thinking of being a journalist after graduating!

    ooh, when harry met sally is one of my all-time favourite movies. that orgasm scene in the cafe… !

    CJ: Hey, when all else fails, go to the Wikitionary! “Evocative: brings to mind”… hm, that doesn’t help much either, does it? Let’s just say it means I know exactly what you mean when you write it! πŸ˜†

    Yeah, all my friends love that scene too. I must be the only one who likes Sleepless in Seattle more. I guess I’m a romantic at heart. πŸ˜‰

  4. Hi there,
    I also write poetry and erotica and I got the same test results that you did. πŸ™‚

    CJ: Hey TT, congrats! Great minds think alike, hey? πŸ™‚

    I think I’m becoming addicted to these quizzes. They’re fun, but it kind of feels like a validation… is there a quiz rehab at all? πŸ˜‰

  5. rehab quizz – LOL πŸ™‚

    CJ: You know, quiz rehab – where they play nothing but Amy Winehouse all day long. πŸ˜†

  6. i would really appreciate it if you could visit this post i did. i am kind of on a comment hunt here cos i really want to know how creative people feel about the issue.

    thanks in advance!

    CJ: Creative people? I like the sound of that! πŸ˜€

    I’ll pop over and check it out now. Questions about ethics and sociology always interest me. You know, some light reading.
