Fantasy writers

So. You think you're a fantasy writer? See how you fare on the The Fantasy Novelist's Exam. I'll be interested to hear the results.

Snort. Does two yes's out of all those questions really count? Sheesh. You're hard to please.

I have no clue when the hay baler was invented, but were it to be important in some way to my novel, I would LOOK IT UP.

I don't think that writing the first book of a planned series (providing it can stand alone as a quality work) should count against one.

And, goodness gracious -- if you're doing work-for-hire for Wizards of the Coast, you've already been paid part of your advance in all likelihood, so abandoning your work would be breach of contract!

. . . Should I point out the rest of the flaws?

Hmmm... I passed! All the same, I can readily conceive of using quite a few of those plot devices without feeling in the least bit guilty. *grin*

Hey, *I* didn't write it, I just found it amusing and thought I'd share.

I see though that there are a few cliches I missed while writing my fantasy spoof for Nano last year. Maybe I'll leave the exam open in front of me when I start revising, so I'll know what to put IN.
