Mini-Quiz: Process of Becoming a Published Fiction Writer

by Ron Kurtus (revised 2 June 2010)

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



1. Why should you examine the market before writing your story?

So you know who your audience will be

So you can aim for making a lot of money

It is nice but usually not necessary

2. Why should someone proofread your story?

So they can recommend you to a good publisher

To make sure no one else has written the same story

They might catch grammatical errors that you missed

3. What is the purpose of a query letter?

To introduce you and your story, as well as to see their interest

To find out if they are still in business

To give them your email address

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