What’s Your Author DNA? Find out Which Famous Author You Are!

Posted on Oct 2, 2022

Knowing what type of author you are will do wonders to help you sharpen your writing skills. When we become aware of our strengths and weaknesses, we begin to flourish.

Nobody is perfect at writing. Not even Stephen King or George R.R. Martin. But the one thing these authors know about themselves is how they write and what they need to work on in order to improve themselves.

But those pros have been at it for years. They had to put in hours, weeks, and years before they were able to determine what type of writer they were.

And with the self-publishing world on the rise, who has time for that?

It’s so important now, more than ever, that you realize your strengths and weaknesses as an author from the start. When you know what you need to buckle down on and what you should spend time highlighting in your work, you can save time while writing and become a better writer overall.

Find out what type of author you are!

We decided to do the work for you. Instead of wasting weeks, months, and even years figuring out the type of author you are, you can find out in just a few minutes!

This quiz is composed of 10 highly intuitive questions to help match you with a famous author just like you! Along with learning who your author twin is, you’ll gain a stronger understanding of your strengths and weaknesses as a writer and even gather tips for improving.

    “Fast and faulty”? My problems are I can’t write fast enough (I’m always looking for ways to up my word count), I get TMIS about which direction to take a story in, and the closer my book gets to “done,” the more critical my internal editor gets (or my inspiration/drive weakens, either way, the difficulty level goes up as I get closer to completion).

    What I CAN do is edit, proofread, layout, design a cover for, and otherwise take a book all the way to the printer (and if the “printer” is me, even bind it) and teach others to do it on the way. My problem is in publicizing and marketing a book that can’t rely on being the only “fish in the pond” to sell.

    (Hmm. Apparently I took this quiz before, and was declared a J.K. Rowling. Sounds like it was a better fit. I’ve got a book I’ve been working on, off and on, for over ten years.)
