Answer Key

If you answered mostly A’s, then you are a perpetually positive person, but not necessarily a writer.  Sorry.  But you are definitely the first person a friend should call upon to pet sit.

If you answered mostly B’s, congratulations on making it through the quiz!  And congratulations on being a writer!

If you answered mostly C’s, please check that attitude at the door, mister mister.

If you answered mostly D’s, then I’m as confused as you are.

Happy Writing!
