Would You Rather (For Writers)

I’ve played a few Would You Rather games here on the blog. It’s a fun game and I decided to come up with one on my own.

Unlike most of these kinds of posts, I won’t be tagging anyone to participate. However, feel free to answer these questions on your own blog if you would like. If you do, be sure to link back to me–I would love to see your answers!

Would you rather go on a writing retreat in the middle of nowhere with no wi-fi, or in your home office being interrupted every so often by friends and family?

I’d rather be home getting interrupted. People bother me, but I think I couldn’t handle not being able to blog or check my e-mail. Plus, I would miss my family and friends. I do occasionally socialize. (Aren’t you proud, Mom?)

Would you rather publish one best-selling novel and never write again, or publish multiple novels that either don’t sell well or sell average?

Multiple novels, definitely. I’d rather be writing for the rest of my life, even if I needed a day-job to continue it.

Would you rather be a best-seller with your real name and people stopping you everywhere you go, or a pen name no one knows who you are?

I’d rather use my real name. Not that I want to be bothered by everyone all the time, but I would like to be recognized for my work. As long as it’s in a good way.

Would you rather teach English/creative writing high school classes, or college classes?

College. I feel like there would be more creative freedom with that.

Would you rather only be able to write during NaNoWriMo months (April, July, and November), or only be able to write five days per month?

Only during NaNo months. Those would be busy months, but it’s a total of 91 days, whereas five days a month would only give me 60 days to write.

What are your answers to these questions? Do you agree with me or disagree? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. Couple of months late to this but here goes:

    Writing retreat – sounds heavenly, just for a day or two!

    Would you rather publish one best-selling novel and never write again, or publish multiple novels that either don’t sell well or sell average?

    I’d actually go for the single best-seller

    Would you rather be a best-seller with your real name and people stopping you everywhere you go, or a pen name no one knows who you are?

    Definitely pen name, I’m not interested in fame fame, prefer renown

    Would you rather teach English/creative writing high school classes, or college classes?

    Either or, I feel like college classes might contain more ego clashes, but high school would probably be for the most part a lower grade

    Would you rather only be able to write during NaNoWriMo months (April, July, and November), or only be able to write five days per month?

    Five days per month is probably not far off what I’m doing now!

    Great post 🙂

    1. Thanks for answering the questions! I think you’re one of the few people who said you’d rather write one single best seller and that’s it, lol. Thanks for reading. 🙂
