I made a writing rank quiz based on the Story Embers quiz, but using questions more focused on writing philosophy than on a quality ranking. It should be easier to take for yourself, as you just need to select each answer with which you agree instead of trying to decide whether you’re amazing or just great at creating compelling villains.
Not that the Story Embers quiz is bad. I promise it’s more carefully thought out than mine is!
You can find the test below. Please don’t take the test more than once, as only 25 people can take the test each month unless I deliver certain quantities of legal tender to the test site.

Hi. I was thinking about doing this, but the link doesn’t seem to work.

@emberynus-the-dragonslayer I added parentheses to make sure the spam filter wouldn’t delete the post. Remove the () from around the dot and the slash and it should work. At least, it still does for me.

I ranked Apprentice Writer lol! A lot of the questions were kinda hard though bc not all the answers applied to me!
But yeah, I’m not a very good writer I guess, there are definitely things I need to improve.
Jominkreesa! For the weirdos who know what it means! 😉 I love you guys!May 4, 2020 at 8:39 am #111348luciusbraun@theswordinthebook
@taylorclogston I got Master Writer… Well, I seemed to have grossly underestimated myself. XD
ISTP. Check out my art instagram @smudge_viel Fueled by my family, friends, and lots of tea.May 4, 2020 at 9:09 am #111349Evelyn@evelyn
Great quiz Taylor! I didn’t realize I could select multiple answers until half way through. 😆 I got Journeyman Writer and I will most definitely check out the books suggested.May 4, 2020 at 10:22 am #111351Chalice@chaliceMay 4, 2020 at 8:11 pm #111412
@theswordinthebook Ayy congrats. I think you’re legally allowed to wear hats with feathers in them now.
@beth20 Thanks for taking the test! What sort of things are you looking to improve in your writing? I might be able to recommend a good book.
@evelyn and @chalice If you didn’t go back through the test and select more answers, I strongly suggest you ignore the original post and take the test again. Different combinations of answers to a single question actually score completely differently, because in my humble opinion certain choices can imply hugely different levels of mastery in various contexts.
Whether I did a good job executing that theory in the test is anyone’s guess, but it might be interesting to take the test again and see if you get a different result with a more complete set of answers! Also, I’m glad it was fun! I really enjoyed making it.May 4, 2020 at 8:38 pm #111413Candide@candide
I took the test too. Got the same (Journeyman Writer). The questions made me think more about my writting itself than my routines as a writter. Kind of more usefull to me.
I’ve read Fancine Prose’s book. Some questions remembered me her book.

I got Apprentice Writer, which I find kinda funny because I got one of the higher scores possible from the SE quiz. Realistically I’m probably somewhere in between.May 5, 2020 at 3:20 pm #111491Beth Darlene@beth20
Yeah, um you know I could prob improve on almost everything lol! 🙂
If I had to choose just one thing I’d pick…maybe structuring and editing! (which is technically two things lol)
What are some of the best books on just writing in general that you’d recommend?
