“In like a lion, out like a lamb” Old Saying
Welcome to March - the month which does march toward spring or toward winter depending on where you live.
Digression: How wonderful to be able to write something which can be read all over the world by just pressing a button - huzzah for the internet.
In the spirit of the old saying at the top of this post, I’ve thought of a few fun ways for you to discover your writing style: Are you a lion or a lamb?
Digression: Please remember that I am the creator of the Writing Sheep, so I may have a slight prejudice.
Sheep #1: That’s not a baaaad thing.
You may be a lion writer if…
- You roar through your drafts.
- You're male and have long hair.
- You’re female and you do the killing Hey - that’s me!
- You like to be the boss.
Sheep #1: It’s about time.
You may be a sheep writer if…
- You prefer to write around others rather than on your own. Hmmm...sometimes….
- You are fearful and easily panicked. Isn’t this every writer when they’re facing a blank page? It’s certainly me.
- You are easily led, but can be very stubborn. Yes.
- You don’t like getting your hair cut. I don’t often bother - is that the same thing?
- You need guidance. If you can define 'guidance' as an outline then yes I do.
Sheep #1: You’re one of us. We always knew it. Carry on.
Me: I shall.
Are you a lion or a lamb? Look at the date. March Forth. It's a sign.
