    I had trouble choosing on this poll because I wanted to know the answer to ALL the questions . . .

    • Cassandra Jade said,

      I have to admit, I’d like to ask them all as well of most people who write.

  2. Michelle said,

    You might have to make one of those meme things for blogging writers . . .

  3. Margot Kinberg said,

    Cassandra – Just wanted you to know there is an award for you on my blog.

  4. Dainty Darlings said,

    “What is the most important element of a novel and why?” is like asking “what is the meaning of life?” This is a good question for another blog entry.

    • Cassandra Jade said,

      Definitely a question that opens up a lot of opinions and a lot of discussions. Particularly when all the elements are essential to creating a novel. Thanks for the comment.

  5. Dainty Darlings said,

    oops, I did it again. I wanted to link to this blog instead! Darn wordpress!

  6. Margot Kinberg said,

    That’s a really interesting poll, Cassandra…. I think that’s one reason I so much like being in an online community with other writers; I learn from all of you : ).

  7. Corra McFeydon said,

    I always want to know what makes people certain they’re writers – because I am uncertain.

    • Fiona Skye said,

      Ooh. That’s a great question. If Cassandra doesn’t cover it in one of her up-coming blogs, I’m going to steal it for my own!

      • Fiona Skye said,

        Heh. I stole it anyway.

    […] Certain You’re A Writer? Cassandra Jade, blogger of thought-provoking questions, has another poll over at her site and one of the questions that was asked (not on the poll, but in the comments) was […]

    Newcomer here. I’m trying to make my way in the biz, so all of these are great questions. Thanks!

    Definitely “how do you know you are a writer”. I don’t buy all that ‘writer’s just write’ stuff – but that may be a personal bugbear! I think you can write in your mind as well, but it has to hit paper for others I guess. I am interested in the mechanics questions too like how, when and where do you write and do you need a special pen and yellow legal pads etc 🙂

    Interesting to think of the answers I would give to each question, sort of shows me where my head is right now. Thanks.

    Is it a bad thing that either one of those topics is likely to inspire me to hour-long rants? 😉 Great poll, thanks!

    • Cassandra Jade said,

      Not really – though if you would like you can add a rant when I ask writers to help answer some of these questions throughout the year.

  12. kitdunsmore said,

    The questions I want answered most always have to do with process. “Where do you get your ideas?” is only the tip of the iceberg on this… I want to know how other writers work – their writing schedule, tricks for getting moving when they get stuck, how they tackle writing an entire novel, etc. – because I am still trying to find my own best way to work.
