Would you rather spend the next few minutes of your precious life writing a story or reading this blog post? Don’t answer that.
Would you rather write one bestseller or ten mediocre books?
While I would want to write a bestseller, I’d probably end up writing mediocre stuff that no one in their right mind should spend their hard-earned money on. I’m in a self-depreciating mood. Let me be.
Would you rather always have to outline or never outline your stories?
Never outline anything. Ever. Never ever. Having to outline everything would make me lose what’s left of my sanity.
Would you rather write all your novels in chronological order or in random fashion?
Random would be fun, but I tend to write my stories chronologically.
Would you rather write only with black/blue ink or have to write with other colours?
Black or blue, the latter preferably. I don’t have to read tiny words written in neon yellow to know my eyesight is bad.
Would you rather have nice handwriting but write slowly or messy handwriting but write quickly?
Messy and quickly. My hand can’t keep up with my brain as it stands, so I’ll sacrifice neatness for speed any day of the week.
Would you rather have to use your real name or a pen name beside every piece you publish?
If my real name is going to appear beside something, you can be sure I’m proud of that something.
Would you rather write to music or write to silence all the time?
When I’m handwriting, I prefer silence. When I’m typing on the computer, I like listening to music. I guess I’d write to very soft music then.
Would you rather be a rich writer or a famous one?
Pretending I could and had to pick one, I’d go with being rich because I don’t think I could handle fame. I doubt I’d handle fortune very well either. But with the money, I could hire someone to manage my finances. Maybe even my life as well.
You could’ve written a lot of words in the time it took you to read this post. Thanks for reading.
