  1. I demand a re-do!

    Obviously a young Brit put this together. E.g., there was tea but no coffee as a drink, no choice to hang out with your own spouse on a Friday night, etc.

    Perhaps this explains my result: You areโ€ฆ E.L. James, author of the bestselling erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey.

  2. I got J K Rowling too. I agree with James. No Coffee? No watching television on Friday night? A flawed quiz if ever there was one. But hey– At least I didn’t get EL James!

  3. I got Sylvia Plath. Hmm…and I agree with Jim about no coffee being listed. So I just clicked on “Surprise Me” – Thanks for the fun, interesting quiz, Kathryn

  4. No coffee was a real bummer. I had to fudge a lot of my answers (apparently there’s no one quite like me). I got Paulo Coelho. Not sure that’s really a good fit, genre-wise, but as far as comparisons, I certainly can’t complain seeing my name next to his!

  5. Well, considering I answered my best to questions that had only a few good answers to choose from, I think I did alright? I got Norman Maclean. Not too bad… but a fun morning!

  6. This was a fun quiz. My results were J.K. Rowling. Now I just have to accomplish what she has done in her writing career. Not a big deal.

  7. I didn’t care for the choice of answers. My first time through I got Norman Maclean with E.L. James on my second round. I’m just wondering what kind of a mashup novel those two combined could lead to. Perhaps we could guess at the title “A ______ Runs Through It”.

  8. Hate those multiple choice where there’s no “none of the above” or “fill in the blank” but I got Norman Maclean author of A River Runs Through It.

  9. I wasn’t crazy about the questions either, but I am a bit of a procrastinator, so I guess it fits. I got Norman Maclean too. I just hope I get published before I’m 73! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I am: Sylvia Plath, author of The Bell Jar and the art of confessional poetry.
    Anyone who says writing is easy clearly hasnโ€™t ever tried to write anything of worth. You take your writing seriously because you know that it is the one true art that can express the plethora of human experience and suffering. You feel it is your duty to transcribe this expression.

  11. J.K. Rowling. I was hoping for Hemingway. I see complaints about coffee not being included as an option. I was sad to see bourbon, or even rye whiskey missing from that question.

  12. E.L. James. At first I was assuredly perplexed. But, after reading the reasoning, eh, OK. Minus the part about needing to be famous and well read, I was cool with the results. That was fun. What else ya got?
