So my subject lines suck

Result of a quiz on what kind of a writer I am.

"You're a pantser, someone who "writes by the seat of her pants." You're the type of a writer who has a brilliant story idea, and runs with it. You're very creative, with the source of your creativity in spontaneity. Outlines bring you down, and you could never write a story if you knew ahead of time how it was going to end. You're a free spirit who writes as whimsy inspires you without worrying overly much what others will think."

I hated the picture that came with that, so I simply copied the text and the link to the quiz. I think that result is quite true, although I hated the quiz because when it had the question "What do you write about?" (something like that), it did not have anything like "action, with plenty of explosions and a non-stop, thrilling plotline" which is the kind of writing I specialise in. If it's not fast, if there's not a lot of gunfire and things getting blown up, if it's not non-stop and a rollercoaster ride like Matthew Reilly's novel, then it's just not acceptable to me.

Can't wait to do some really productive writing over the holidays. My story's going to become so fast-paced and action-packed that what I had will look slow and boring.

athanasius7 Mike, I'd like to hear your thoughts on original sin. Are we born with it? Is it like a "genetic disease" of sorts? What is the fate of little children who die before they reach an age whereby they can accept or deny faith? Can you provide some Scripture on the issue? (There's a debate on Soon about this and I'd like to hear your opinion)

Two exams tomorrow. SOR: I'm feeling confident about. I feel like I have an understanding of what we're doing, and considering my current favoured career move is being a professor in philosophy and theology and what we're currently studying is quite philosophical, theological, and psychological, I damn well better understand it! It's all kinds of stuff about Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Erik Erikson, Alfred Adler, and Soren Kierkegaard, and it's rather fascinating to say the least. Geography: I've studied the stuff and I feel like I know it, but I don't feel like I know ENOUGH and I honestly think I'm going to sit down tomorrow, take one look at the exam paper, and think "Oh crap, I don't know that!" But Geography's my best subject and hopefully I can come up with answers for questions like that. I've done it in the past and it's worked. I'm going to re-read my textbook again tonight, and I have two hours tomorrow before my first exam (SOR) and nearly an hour at lunch to do more study.

And I can't forget to study for Maths B or German Listening, because they're on Wednesday. That'll probably be a good deal of tomorrow night. At least I know my new words for German ... just I need to go over the old stuff. And Maths ... ick, that'll be hell. It counts for my final mark next year, too. Eeep. I probably should study that tonight.
