I learned what I already knew




I don't know why...but I am compelled to take these quizzes. (See box below) Even if I already know the answer...I like to assure myself that I'm on track.
Shockingly, (not really) this quiz informmed me I should write Science Fiction. (!)





I decided almost a year ago to try and write a romantic science fiction story.
Just a Kiss was born from wanting to write a shorter work in a different genre to fulfill a requirement on my annual goal list.
It turned out to be a great idea and a big turning point for me.

Just a Kiss, my take on hot and sexy chocolate kissing aliens, was the first book I sold. :)

So if you're a writer in a rut...branch out and try a new genre. You never know what might happen.

You Should Be a Science Fiction Writer

Your ideas are very strange, and people often wonder what planet you're from.
And while you may have some problems being "normal," you'll have no problems writing sci-fi.
Whether it's epic films, important novels, or vivid comics...
Your own little universe could leave an important mark on the world!

You Should Be a Joke Writer

You're totally hilarious, and you can find the humor in any situation.
Whether you're spouting off zingers, comebacks, or jokes about life...
You usually can keep a crowd laughing, and you have plenty of material.
You have the makings of a great comedian - or comedic writer.



Not sure if I'd make a good comedian, but *I* think my stuff is funny.


But I know what you mean about knowing what you write. My mom found some of my old stories that I wrote when I was a kid. Some of them were, well, not so good (especially the sci-fi stuff which was blatant Ray Bradybury rip-offs) but the only one story that was pretty good was a Nancy Drew clone (my heroine was Nancy Flew). Skip forward to today, and the book that landed me an agent is a teen mystery series! LOL!
