    1) What do you like to write (sci-fi, fantasy, nonfiction, etc.)?
    I like to combine a few, or they just turn out that way...accidentally.
    2) How old were you when you decided to be a writer?
    Weelllllllll, that's a tough question. First it was in 6th and 7th that I thought "Being a writer would be cool," but then 8th grade I wanted to be a professional dancer, and the in 9th I wanted to be a writer again/actress, and then in 10th I thought I should pick where the money is and I stuck with being an anesthesiologist for a while... and then 11 I thought "I can't be an anesthesiologist if I'm afraid of gorey things," and I went back to wanting to be a writer/ artist, and now I just want to be a writer and maybe a tacher on the side. I'm still not so sure lol.
    3) Are you published yet?
    Technically, yes because in forth grade my poem was published in a teacher's selection book, but technically no because I didn't get any money... just the book for free.
    4) If so, what publisher do you use?
    Uhhhh...next!
    5) Writer's block right now or are you having too many ideas in your head?
    Too many ideas.
    6) Do you write in parts or from start to finish?
    My system is irregular; but normally start to finish.
    7) Since good authors read and write a lot, do you do that?
    Yes, but mostly literary? Noo... Well, only for school.
    8) Ever tried writing songs?
    I don't think I'd be able to since I'm not a musician. The words need to go with the tune and stuff... at least I'm pretty sure.
    9) Where is your favorite place to write?
    Outside on the swings on a nice cloudy day.
    10) Say what you think of your writing.
    Hmm. I don't exactly know what to think... I could have more improved diction?
    11) (Completely off subject) What do you think of this writing survey?
    I thought it was fun. A little long, but fun :D

    1) What do you like to write (sci-fi, fantasy, nonfiction, etc.)?

    I like to write.

    2) How old were you when you decided to be a writer?

    I didn't decide to be a writer. There was no decision involved. It's just something I do. I never decided to be a musician, either. I just started doing it one day and kept doing it.

    3) Are you published yet?

    Yes.

    4) If so, what publisher do you use?

    I use... um... ok, you're a kid. I'll keep this clean.

    5) Writer's block right now or are you having too many ideas in your head?

    The only time I don't write is when I'm doing a tarot reading for a client (when I keep my mind carefully devoid of ideas), or when I'm sleeping--although when I'm sleeping I am dreaming of things to write about.

    6) Do you write in parts or from start to finish?

    Yes.

    7) Since good authors read and write a lot, do you do that?

    *snort*

    8) Ever tried writing songs?

    I write songs all the time.

    9) Where is your favorite place to write?

    On my arm. If that's in use, then on my leg.

    10) Say what you think of your writing.

    I think my writing sucks donkey balls. Hundreds of law enforcement people, forced to read it for clues into my psychotic and possibly criminal personality, would agree.

    11) (Completely off subject) What do you think of this writing survey?

    It's a survey... about writing.

    I hope this was helpful. yours in Chaos, Scarlett

    1) What do you like to write (sci-fi, fantasy, nonfiction, etc.)? Comedy.
    2) How old were you when you decided to be a writer? The first time I seriously considered writing and publishing a novel/novella/short story was probably last year sometime.
    3) Are you published yet? No.
    4) If so, what publisher do you use? I said I'm not published yet. Are you even listening to me?
    5) Writer's block right now or are you having too many ideas in your head? A bit of both. I have plenty of ideas but I don't really know how to go about getting them all written down.
    6) Do you write in parts or from start to finish? Usually from start to finish, but for the story I'm writing now I've been leaving out bits that I plan to come back to later.
    7) Since good authors read and write a lot, do you do that? Yeah.
    8) Ever tried writing songs? Nope (well, not seriously anyway).
    9) Where is your favorite place to write? My computer, I guess.
    10) Say what you think of your writing. I think my ideas are good but my actual writing skills aren't what they could be. Hopefully this will improve with age (I'm 15 now).
    11) What do you think of this writing survey? I think it was the best survey ever made in the entire history of survey-making. You are truly an inspiration to us all.

    That small dark corner of your mind
    1) What do you like to write (sci-fi, fantasy, nonfiction, etc.)?
    Words, an occasional sentence. Just kidding. I prefer fantasy above all else, and nonfiction (only in short stories though).
    2) How old were you when you decided to be a writer?
    I don't want to be a writer. I don't know what I want to be, but I don't want to become a full-time writer. Deadlines hate me.
    3) Are you published yet?
    Hell yes, baby. Check out my sig.
    4) If so, what publisher do you use?
    What? I wrote a poem, I won a contest, it got published. I got no idea how to answer this question.
    5) Writer's block right now or are you having too many ideas in your head?
    So many ideas they're blocking each other out. If that makes any sense. At all.
    6) Do you write in parts or from start to finish?
    No, I write from finish to start.
    7) Since good authors read and write a lot, do you do that?
    I've read more then most, less then some. As for writing... don't do that enough atm.
    8) Ever tried writing songs?
    Yes, although they usually turn into poems in the process.
    9) Where is your favorite place to write?
    Right here.
    10) Say what you think of your writing.
    It's not to bad, and a nice way to clear my head. Although my English still needs some work (not being an English native speaker sucks).
    11) (Completely off subject) What do you think of this writing survey?
    More replies, plz.

    1) What do you like to write (sci-fi, fantasy, nonfiction, etc.)? not too sure yet. I'm thoroughly interested in people with mental diseases...but I haven't written enough to put my writing into a single category. I play with everything.

    5) Writer's block right now or are you having too many ideas in your head? Niether :)

    1) What do you like to write (sci-fi, fantasy, nonfiction, etc.)?
    Mpstly science fiction, but also some general fiction.

    2) How old were you when you decided to be a writer?
    In some ways, I'm still deciding. I have many interests. Writing is a major one, and growing in prominence for me. I've written short pieces since I could read, but only within the past year have I seriously considered writing for publication.

    3) Are you published yet?
    No.

    4) If so, what publisher do you use?
    N/A

    5) Writer's block right now or are you having too many ideas in your head?
    I continue to write. I don't believe in writer's block. I've neglected the novel I began earlier this year, but currently I'm collecting my ideas and research to tackle a new novel from scratch for NaNoWriMo.

    6) Do you write in parts or from start to finish?
    A little of both. I mostly write sequentially, but the novel I started began with a couple of short stories that mostly fall near the middle of the novel. But even the rest of it, I'm working on non-sequential chapters that represent different story lines that will converge later.

    7) Since good authors read and write a lot, do you do that?
    I'm always reading, and I do a lot of daily writing. But I don't have room for enough bookcases to hold all the books in my house. so I have boxes of books in the basement, amd teetering stacks of books on nearly every horizontal surface.

    8) Ever tried writing songs?
    Not since high school (we're talking decades ago), and what I did write was awful.

    9) Where is your favorite place to write?
    In the living room, with the TV on for background noise.

    10) Say what you think of your writing.
    Gradually improving.

    11) (Completely off subject) What do you think of this writing survey?
    I don't like surveys. I wasn't going to respond to this one, but I figured, "Oh what the hell..."

    1) What do you like to write (sci-fi, fantasy, nonfiction, etc.)?
    Predominantly fantasy...actually, I write general fiction, really, I just use mythological characters to do it. >_>

    2) How old were you when you decided to be a writer?
    Can I just say I always was? :p I think I was 9 when I first tried to get something published, though...

    3) Are you published yet?
    For all intents and purposes, yes. (I've had a few poems published, and a while back, I wrote something that ended up being used in a 'self-help' book that was about coping with grief :/)

    4) If so, what publisher do you use?
    Don't ask me, I'm just the writer...

    5) Writer's block right now or are you having too many ideas in your head?
    Right now, I have some very definite ideas about my next piece - they are simmering on a low heat. ;)

    6) Do you write in parts or from start to finish?
    Almost always in parts.

    7) Since good authors read and write a lot, do you do that?
    o_O

    8) Ever tried writing songs?
    lol. Yup.

    9) Where is your favorite place to write?
    Wherever I can do it comfortably and uninterrupted.

    10) Say what you think of your writing.
    Generally, it goes a little something like this: Awesome - I'm finished! Hey...it's not too bad, I kinda like it...oh, wait...lemme just fix that. Hmmm... now that doesn't work as well as it did before... what the? Dammit, this sucks!

    11) (Completely off subject) What do you think of this writing survey?
    Wooo! I finished something! :-D Wait - lemme just go and fix that...
