While there are still a few topics in the genre section that I need more time to think about and research, I feel the need to take a break from it and move on to another section of major importance—Types of Writers. There are many types of writers—each separated by their motivation for writing. It is important to know what writing groups you fall into, so that you know your strengths, weaknesses, and can devise strategies so that your motivation can meet with your medium in order to create the best possible story. Today, I'm going to list the types that I will be later discussing, as well as giving readers the chance for input, in case I forget any of them.
