    I took the quiz, answering as honestly as possible, and I got Advanced…

    I guess I should be proud of the score I got, but… I can’t help but feel like I answered wrong.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    I also got a higher rank than I think I deserve. Self reporting assessment isn’t usually the best tool on its own, but can be useful alongside outside critique.

    If you can manage it, polish a story that uses as many of the elements as possible (like, make sure you have an antagonist and a theme), and ask a few people to take the test for you, giving answers as they apply to your story.

    Thanks. It helps to know I’m not alone. 🙂

    Yes, I know what you mean! I felt the same way. 😀

    I agree with Taylor, though, it is a helpful tool taken with a grain of salt.

    You’ve taken the test too? What level did you get? If you don’t mind my asking 🙂

    Umm, it has been a few months, but I’m pretty sure I got Master. Hehe.

    :O Master?? Wow! That’s incredible! How long have you been writing?

    Well, it is a lot of self-evaluation, and I know people who have taken it and come out with a super high rank when I have read their writing and consider it not nearly that good, lol! Thus I don’t really know how accurate that estimate is of me until I actually finish and publish a book, I guess. 🙂

    I have been writing for…about 4 yrs?! How about you?

    I get what you mean. I tried to answer all the questions honestly, picking a lower number when I wasn’t completely sure, and all that. I wish I could find some people to beta-read my work, to let me know if the test score was even remotely accurate. XD

    Yes, lol! I think it is probably accurate, but I guess the real test is after you publish your work?! 😛

    Publication??? Oh boy. XD I’m barely brave enough to let even my closest friends read my work, haha. I haven’t even really considered trying to get it published. Right now I’m just focusing on finishing the book. XD

    Have you thought about publication? Like, are you going to self-publish, or not?

    XD! I have thought about it somewhat, and I think it will depend on which book, as far as whether I use self-publishing or traditional. I might use different methods for different books. 🙂

    I agree, though…right now it is ‘finish the books’, (and finish school) first!

    That’s a good idea. Mind if I use it? 😉

    Of course not, lol! I thought it might be kinda cool, and then I can see what I liked best, or rather, what the pluses and minuses were. 🙂

    Thanks! Lol 🙂 I agree.  Honestly the thought of trying to get my work published scares me a little. But it’s a long way off, so I have time  XD
