A visit to the zoo today has inspired this post!
So … what kind of writing animal are you?
Panda – you’re a showy writer and refuse to be hurried, but don’t let time run out on you.
Meerkat – you’re too busy studying the market and watching everyone else to actually sit down and write!
Koala – you’re too spaced out to write, man.
Albino wallaby – you write because you’re unique. You have something really different to say.
Rhino – you charge into writing without thinking and so you’re always rewriting and revising and never quite getting there.
Orang Utan – you’re too laid back to write, man.
Alligator – you’re snappy and aggressive and you’re gonna destroy the opposition.
Porcupine – you’re too prickly to take advice or criticism about your writing from anyone.
Exotic bird – you’re only writing a book to show off to friends and family.
Penguin – you write because it’s the in-thing to do. You want to be like everyone else.
Snake – you’re inscrutable so no one knows why you write.
Giraffe – you write because you love it and it makes you feel great. You feel ten feet tall – if not more!
Or are you another writing animal altogether?
