What Kind of Writer Are You?

Fiction?
Nonfiction?

Two basics.

To narrow it down?
Fiction:
historical
contemporary
suspense
thriller
mystery
speculative

romance . . .
and more

Nonfiction:
instructional
research
history
biography
autobiography
memoir
etc.

Do you want to write educational books?
Do you want to ghost write?
Would you like to write research papers?
Magazine articles?
Novellas?
Or 500 page long books?
Does writing Sunday school material excite you?

Do you want to write for yourself?
Friends, neighbors, church family?
Children?
Or do you want to make lots of money? (Ha!)


Are you a seat-of-the-pantster?
Do you outline religiously?
Set goals daily and meet them?
Write when you want, what you want, how you want? Hmmm?

Write funny stuff?
Or seriously?


Gotta know all this if you wanna write.
At least eventually.
