I love quizzes, they really were the only interesting part of Seventeen for me when I was younger. And I used to take so many along the lines of , what Harry Potter character are you? Or what element are you?

So today, I bring you lots of quizzes about writing!

I write like
Charles Dickens

I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!

Hmm, I've taken this twice, both with pieces of writing that I've written in the past month, and got different answers. But the first time, I had now idea who that author was, at least I know Charles Dickens.

Holly Lisle's Are You Right For Writing? Quiz

I scored a 56, meaning 'If you can write, you're in there'. I love that she explains why certain answers are better than others for her 10 questions too.

The Original Fiction Mary Sue Litmus Test

& The Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test

While the questions are slightly different, they're essentially the same, making sure your character is not a Mary Sue!

Kiersy Temperament Test
Apparently I'm INTJ, also known as a Mastermind (just like Stephen Hawking!). And knowing that, I can go here and learn about my strength and weakness as a writer based on my personality score. It's scare how much of the analysis is correct.

Which Crazy Writer are You?
Apparently, I'm Tom Wolfe.
"Ah, the life of a wall flower. You get to hang out with the most interesting people - radio DJs, hot rodders, hippies, Hell's Angels, Wall Street tycoons, frat boys - and are completely happy putting them into the spotlight. You're completely happy hanging back with your martini and your little notebook, jotting down all your little observations, in sight but out of mind. Sure, everyone at the party knows who you are - but do they know the real you? And, more importantly, if you want to fade into the background, what's with the bright white suit?"

You Should Be a Film Writer

You don't just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.

You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.

Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.

And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!


  1. I didn't have time to do all of these - I chose the 'Are you right for writing?' and got 63, the same category as you. Still laughing that anyone might be writing for the money and fame!

  2. oooo what fun - you know I won't get a lick of work done taking these things but like you I just love them!
