What type of writer are you?

Sometimes you have to know yourself to grow yourself. If you’re a writer, knowing you and your motivation can play a huge role in your writing. Key questions can get you in a place to write the best story of your life.

1. What makes you want to write?

2. What gets you in the mood? Do you have to have music? A quiet place to concentrate?

3. Where do you get your inspiration? From the birds in the trees? A random television show? Your little brother or sister?

4. Are you committed? Is this just a one shot deal or are you in it for the long haul?

5. Are you a planner? Do you need a outline, character sketches, and pictures of scenery all laid out or do you make it all up as you go along?

6. Is organization the key to your muse? Do you thrive in chaos, papers flung everywhere with pictures posted here and there?

7. Do you hate staring at an empty page? Must you stop in the middle of a paragraph or sentence so that when you return to the project you are continuing a thought instead of attempting to formulate a new one?

8. Long hand, typewriter, or computer?

Before you sit down to work on your first, or next, project consider these questions. If you want to start motivated and remain on the path create an environment that nurtures your process. Look for the things that make you want to fall into your character’s world and walk hand and had with them through their trials. Take the time to get to know you and in the process you may learn more about your characters, your stories and your process.
