How Much Do You Know About Jane Austen? // Quiz

Jane Austen: author of some of the most famous literary works in history and thought of by many as the greatest female writer of all time. She was only twenty-one years old when she finished her most well-known novel, Pride and Prejudice.

I’m sure we ALL know the storyline to at least one of her books, but how much do you know about Jane herself? Though she lived a short life, her accomplishments go far beyond her number of years. Her beloved characters and way of writing make her novels highly celebrated in the world of literature, and I admire her and her writing, being a writer in the 21st century myself. I’m sure she never knew how famous she would become within the next two hundred years, but I think she would be very pleased!

Quiz // What Story Should You Write Next?

As writers (and I suppose as well as regular human beings), we often have trouble deciding what we should focus on next. . . when there’s that urge to start something new, regardless of our other projects. Maybe you just finished writing a novel you’re very proud of, or perhaps you’ve become bored with your current work-in-progress and desire a change. No matter the instance, sometimes we need suggestions on what do to next (we can’t think of everything ourselves, although we all wish we could).

Hopefully this quiz that I’ve had so much fun creating will give you some inspiration and ideas on where to focus your writing in the immediate or distant future. There are five different endings, so if you’re not happy with the first one you get, just try again. Have fun!
