Mini-Quiz: Major Routes to Professional Writing

by Ron Kurtus (8 January 2008)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is an advantage of being an employee over a contractor?

You don't need a college degree

You don't have to think much

You have income stability

2. Why do some writers go in business for themselves?

They enjoy the independence and variety

They really hate writing but enjoy business activities

So they don't have to work very often

3. Why is writing a book considered speculative writing?

They are taking a chance on whether they can actually write a book

They are taking a chance on whether they can get it published and sold

It is a common expression for those who don't have jobs

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
