“Would You Rather” Writer’s Edition

28 Jan

I follow many Tumblr blogs, most that have to do with writing, prompts, and Lord of the Rings. Often enough, some of the blogs will create a “Make Me Choose” or “Would You Rather” post, and I thought it would be fun to make up one of my own and tag a friend or two for their answers. Without further ado:

Would You Rather…

  • Drink Coffee or Tea: Tea!
  • Write a series in the same world or create a new world with every novel: Although I would love to be able to create a new world every time, I would probably stick close to the same world, lore, and set of characters more often than not.
  • Write a short story a week or one novel a year: Novels are wonderful, but I’m more apt to write short stories every week (trying to focus more on novels, though!).
  • Type or write longhand: Although typing is faster, I feel writing longhand and filling up notebooks is more satisfying.
  • Write play scripts or comic books: Comics!
  • Have more of an author presence on Twitter or Tumblr: Tumblr!
  • Use your real name or a pen name: Probably my real name. I don’t think it’s too bad. 🙂
  • Have your book become a movie or a television show: Movie, I think. It’d be amazing seeing it on the big screen!
  • Read your writing aloud to a roomful of loved ones or strangers: Strangers, haha! I value my loved ones opinions, but I wouldn’t be as self-conscious and I think I’d get more honest opinions from strangers.
  • Write in silence or with noise/music: Noise/music, preferably instrumental music.
  • Have an entire day of uninterrupted writing time or write in short bursts of time: Love the idea of an entire day, but my attention span is probably more suited to short bursts of time.
  • Be a main character in a romance novel or an action novel: Action!
  • Write about the past or the future: The future — spaceships, androids, mutants…
  • Be the lesser-known coauthor of a bestseller or the sole author of an average-selling book: Probably sole author (although I suppose it depends on who the coauthor is)
  • Meticulously plot out every aspect of your novel or just wing it: Wing it! Love the surprise aspect!

I’m going to tag Rachel, Herminia, and Skye to do this, if they’d like.

Anyone else can also do this or make up their own. Leave me a link or a comment if you decide to do it — I’d love to see other responses or questions!
