I found this poll at Upon Reflection. I won’t do the “what drink are you” or “what celebrity are you” but this one intrigued me. “What kind of writer should you be?” Compared to some, it’s very short and in my case, pretty dead-on. When I write, it’s not what most people would typically think of as romance. I’m not into writing love scenes. I prefer to write about relationships. Some are romantic, some are friendships. I’m a fairy tale type of girl. As silly as it may sound, I want to be Anne Hathaway in “Princess Diaries” or “The Devil Wears Prada”. I love how she transforms in both of those movies.
In “Princess Diaries” she goes from being the awkward teen to a princess. I’m not sure I’d want to be a princess, I don’t look good in a tiara. Nonetheless, I’m completely in love with her character and the movie. Julie Andrews was a wonderful choice for the queen!
In “The Devil Wears Prada” she goes from being a plain-jane writer wannabe (hmmmmm, I can relate to this) to the high fashion assistant to the editor of Runway magazine. I’ve long said that I would love to be a “cute shoe” person. I want to have a job where I can get dressed up and wear makeup. Then again, that would require being capable of wearing makeup and doing my hair without looking like a clown
You Should Be a Romance Novelist
You see the world as it should be, and this goes double for all matters of the heart.
You can find the romance in any situation, and you would make a talented romance story writer…
And while you may be a traditional romantic, you’re just as likely to be drawn to quirky or dark love stories.
As long as it deals with infatuation, heartbreak, and soulmates – you could write it.
