If there’s one thing I learned from American Idol, it’s that the world is full of people who grossly misjudge their own talent. Some of the contestants who try out are good and don’t know it. Most are awful and don’t believe it. I thought it’d be interesting to gauge the self-perception of writers. Obviously, there’s no panel to determine the truth here, but I thought this would make for an interesting poll anyway.
Every writer has their strengths and weaknesses depending on the type of writing. Just rank yourself on your overall ability/talent as you see it. I think I can guess where most will place themselves. Guess we’ll have to wait and see though!
