Quiz: Tell Us Your Favorite Kind of Book and We’ll Give You a Writing Prompt

They say you should write what you know, but we also think you should write what you love to read. After all, if you’ve only ever read thriller novels, chances are you’ll find it a bit challenging to write a rom-com. And if you’re a fan of all things fantasy, you’re going to know exactly what tropes already exist in the genre so you can put your own creative spin on them with your own story. Even if you’re itching to jump into a new genre, it’s always helpful to read up on a few books from authors who’ve already mastered it, just to make sure you’re not reinventing the wheel.

What kind of books fit your current reading mood, and how could they inspire your own writing? We’re here to help you figure that out. Take our quiz, pin down what type of book you’re vibing with right now, and see our suggestions for new YA books you should check out along with a writing prompt that will (hopefully) jump-start your writing. Sound good? Let’s get started!
