Here's my thought about writers: we come in all different flavors and styles. I spent some time today pondering the variety of our styles. Here's my list of some of the major categories and characteristics of the writer species:
1) The Proud Pantster
3) The Writer-Terminator
Thank goodness you can write pretty well, because basically, you have no other marketable skills. If it weren't for words, you'd be pushing a shopping cart.
6) The Cranky Writer
You cram in your writing time between a million other duties: job, family, life. Your perennial dream is to go on a writer's retreat. Or simply to take a nap.
8) The On-deadline Writer
See Harried Writer. See also Cranky Writer.
