Personality Test For Writers – What Type Are You?

I am an Eternal Writer, just like one of my favorite authors, the Queen of Mysteries, Agatha Christie

Writer's Treasure Chest

Lately, I found a personality test for writers on the ‘greatstorybook.com’ website. I read that there are many different types of writers and I was curious about what type I am.

According to ‘greatstorybook.com,’ there are eight different types of writers:

Inspired Writer

Eternal Writer

Logical Writer

Savvy Writer

Closet Writer

Literate Writer

Hesitant Writer

Innovative Writer

The first question was, which type I think I am, and I spontaneously replied ‘Inspired writer’. As it turned out, I was wrong.

After replying to 31 questions the result told me, I am an ‘Eternal Writer’, just like Agatha Christie and Laurie R. King.

I admit I’m honored to find myself in such illustrious circles.

This is apparently the writer type I am:

Detailed Description

Many Eternal Writers have a genius intellect, but you know from personal experience that this doesn’t mean everything is necessarily easier because of that. If anything, it’s…

Fun With Leaves – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Matt was out in his backyard, raking up leaves. His yard was fairly large and there were a lot of trees around, so he had been at it for quite a while. His big black and white Maine Coon cat, Sylvester, had joined him about halfway through his raking, and Matt would take a break now and then to watch the cat play with some of the leaves. Watching the cat play put a smile on his face and helped him to not feel quite so tired.

Sylvester was having a good time outside. He loved that Matt had put in a cat door a few months ago, allowing him to go in and out at will. He especially enjoyed it now that Autumn had come. The temperature was cooling off, and more importantly, the leaves were falling from the trees. Playing with the leaves was one of his favorite things. He loved the crackly sound they made under his paws. Batting them around was lots of fun, but what was even more fun was jumping and swatting at the leaves as they fell towards the ground.

But the most fun of all was jumping into the big pile of leaves after Matt had finished raking them. And it looked like Matt was just about done.

As Sylvester watched, Matt raked the last few leaves over to the big pile in the middle of the yard. Matt stepped back, let the rake fall to the ground, and wiped his brow.

“Whew,” he said tiredly. “Finally, it’s finished.”

Sylvester then took his cue. He ran at top speed for the pile, and before Matt knew what was happening, the big cat jumped right into the pile. Leaves went flying everywhere while, from the center of the pile, Sylvester began jumping and swatting at the falling leaves nearest him.

Matt stared in horror and groaned, “Oh, Sylvester, no. Why did you do that? Now I’ve got to start all over again.”

Sylvester paid him no mind. He was having too much fun with the leaves.

5 Years

I just noticed that today is my 5 year anniversary on WordPress!

Wow! Where does the time go?

I know I haven’t been posting as much lately as I used to. Things have just been rather busy for me. I hope things will slow down a bit soon so I can get back to posting more on here  – and getting more writing done to share with you all about.

In the meantime, I thank you all for following me and I hope you have enjoyed what I have managed to share with you so far, and I hope you will continue to follow me through this somewhat dry spell, enjoy what I do manage to share with you, and look forward to when things will finally pick up.
