Reflections of a working writer and reader



What type of writer should you be?

This is the result of a very short online quiz. The amount of input required was not possibly enough to elicit this response. But if you’re into quizzes. . .

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!

What Type of Writer Should You Be?

I don’t know if this is true. I’ve never tried to write a film script. One of the things I love about writing novels is that it is just me in a room and no other distractions. Particularly: no other people. I know that writing for television involves input from many others; almost everyone involved, in fact, wants to have their say, the producers, the director, the actors, and many other technicians and professionals down to the tea boy. For some writers that scenario obviously works. But for me I want to live in my imagination and that, necessarily, means doing it alone.

    I, too, prefer to be alone when I write because so much more will go into my writing. It will be bursting with rainbows and demons and all kinds of imaginary characters…it just makes it that much better.
