I will go down in history as a maker of fine cheeses, destroyer of Kings, creator of Realms, and... oh, real life, got it.

In all seriousness, I circle between artist, writer, fighter, musician, and a whole lot of other things that meld together in a cooking pot to make the trash that is me. I think I would most like to be known as someone who stands for what they believe in though. No point in keeping all my emotions bottled up if I don't use them to defend myself. (Lordie I'm a mess)

I think I would prefer "Artist" or "Extreme Fangirl" haha, considering I draw and create characters more than actually write about them, I think a Drawer or something more in a sense of traditional pencil-to-paper art.

I like "artist" because writing is an art but "writer" is the best choice. I write poetry but I'm also a novelist.
Even if I'm slow I will walk with my own feet, because I know this path is mine to take, I will never lose my dream.

Something between a writer, a musician, and a procrastinating YWSer! (I'd call that crazy!)

I think writer describes me best as that is what I do. Though I did think of poet and as soon as I have enough points you will see why.

I like artist. I write poetry, shorts, and attempt novels, play various musical instruments, am in love with my camera, dance a little, and occasionally draw. I think they all fall under the category of art. Although I'm really leaning more towards Dreamkeeper or some such. ;)

Honestly, I'm a dabbler. I dabble in writing, drawing and video-game creation.

I love that Pat Buchanan lives on. Some jokes never die.

I like to think of myself as Pat Buchanan. Because I can be anything I'd like to be. So I'll aim to be Pat Buchanan II: poet and successful YWSer.

I like to think of myself as 45th President of the United States. Though, I like Pat Buchanan. Pat Buchanan has said some really great things about me. Great man, Pat Buchanan.
