Apollo
God of Music & Poetry

With the laurel wreath of writing knowledge crowning your head you continue stroking the lyre of words in you heart.

 

Hera

Although a writing virgin, you eagerly enter the novel wilderness, hunting down the requirements of your genre.

Dionysus:
God of Wine
Words are your party! Chapters your orgyOften drunk on your own word count, you are prone to plotting madness and character chaos.

Aphrodite
Goddess of Love
Your desire for writing is matched only by your love of the beautifully crafted sentence, the sensual turn of phrase, and the nude truth in words. Wearing the magic girdle of imagination, you laugh at plotting problems and smile at naysayers, for you are, after all, the very embodiment of writing pleasure, be it first draft, rewrites, or edits.
