Writer's Exam

Alright, I'll admit it. I've wanted to be a writer for years (haven't we all?), but that desire always came in a distant second behind wanting to teach. As I get older, however, that desire to write keeps creeping closer and closer to the surface. Perhaps one day it will manifest itself in some interesting ways.

In the meantime, I quietly read author and illustrator blogs, occasionally stop by and see what editors and literary agents have to say (even the snarky ones!), and try to make time to write. I would have more time for this endeavor if I didn't spend the first hour (gulp! or two) of each day catching up on e-mail and reading through my blogroll in Google Reader. Which, by the way, prompts me to ask the question, when is Kelly going to get an RSS feed?

Anyway, in my web travels this morning I came across this very funny Fantasy Novelist's Exam. No, I don't have any fantasy novels in my head just waiting to be poured out onto paper, but I truly do love to read them! The Hobbit? Absolutely! LOTR? Did it once, but never again!

(Thanks to Miss Snark for the link.)


  1. I don't have one, Tricia? I thought I did...

    What do I need to do?

  2. Hi Kelly!
    I have tried several times to add a subscription to your site, but get the same old message, "No feed available."
    To fix this, go into your blogger settings, click on site feed and where it says allow blog feed, choose either full or short.
    I'll be thrilled if this works! My blogroll had gotten so long that it took forever to click through all the links. Google Reader has been a gem for keeping me up-to-date!

  3. you have to click the button on the right side it says feed (orange with a flame)you have the scroll down a bit, I couldn't add her either at first, but then I clicked the button and tada it worked, I use google reader.

  4. Thanks, anon.

    I'll fix the blogger one too, Tricia.
