I got journeyman writer which might be overestimating my skills a bit, haha. I liked the antagonist and narrator questions; they listed some cool options for writing that I might try to experiment with. Antagonist shows possible future for the protagonist? Antagonist as hero of their own story? Sounds cool to write!May 6, 2020 at 6:26 pm #111768
I got Master Writer. I think I can still improve in a lot of areas, but I don’t think I’m a bad writer. Thanks for making this quiz!!

I got Master Writer. Kinda funny considering I have not really written that much.
I really enjoyed how you could multi-select. That was a big plus for me!
I also liked a lot of the questions. Most of the questions didn’t directly apply to me but they gave me ideas on how I could write later on. They are all things I can work on and think about more in my writing.
Thank you so much! This quiz was so helpful.
One question. Where did you get the information to formulate the questions? Or did you get those from your brain 😀 if so you are VERY smart :).
Hope to hear from you soon!

@melodyjoy Well you gotta write then, and get that mastery on paper =P As for the information, they just come from my personal writing theory that came from reading a ton of books, writing a lot, and talking with other writers. They came “from my brain” as a result of years spent learning as much as I could. A good amount of it came from learning from and talking to people like Josiah and Daeus! Thanks for commenting and for taking the test :-}

Can you tell me the different levels of writing you put in the quiz?

@katja-r I didn’t have a terribly scientific method to it. The levels are just based off the levels of a person in a trade. An apprentice is someone still learning the fundamentals. A journeyman is someone who works underneath a master, but who is skilled in their trade and can be trusted to important work. A master isn’t someone who has nothing left to learn, but is someone skilled enough to make their own decisions at all levels of the trade.
In ye olde days, you’d create a “masterpiece” and submit it to your guild as a kind of final exam. In the modern day (at least in the US), a person in a trade needs to be a master before they can be self-employed in that trade.
In this test, if you give mostly answers which I thought showed relative unfamiliarity with core concepts, you’ll get an Apprentice score. Otherwise it’s based more on the density of “good” answers to “higher value” questions, mostly relating to character and theme.

Makes sense! Thanks for explaining that.

Journeyman writer. Better than I expected. I had to take it again knowing I could choose more than one option!
Also appreciated the ways to gird my loins on the road to publication! Will be locating those books.
