What kind of Writer should I be?

You Should Be a Science Fiction Writer
Your ideas are very strange, and people often wonder what planet you're from.
And while you may have some problems being "normal," you'll have no problems writing sci-fi.
Whether it's epic films, important novels, or vivid comics…
Your own little universe could leave an important mark on the world!

What Type of Writer Should You Be?

                                                                     HG Wells

Well, the result certainly wasn't what I expected. I have always thought of considering myself as a struggling poet who has, thus far, produced only two poetic works… TWO mind you and a fiction/non-fiction writer of sorts. Hmmm… this will probably give me the encouragement I need to start writing sci-fi since I haven't attempted at writing one before. Who knows? Maybe I do have a spark of H.G. Wells (pix above), a little bit of cells from Issac Asimov and a dash of Orson Scott Card in me!

    Hee-hee. Guess who else got the same result! I wonder what Kib’s will be.

    P.S. Sci-fi isn’t just about high-tech stuff. Most of them, I notice, raise important questions about life in subtle ways by taking what could be to a certain extreme.

    Star Trek – Can different races work together albeit intergalactic species?

    Ghost In The Shell – What would we be if we could be altered like machines? Would we still be human?

    Matrix – Are machines controlling us i.e. entertainment and stuff?

  2. Sigh, Sam… always the philosophically inquisitive one, aren’t you? 😉

    It is quite through in fact, that sci-fi is not all about hi-tech stuff and a lot of it has to do with the studies and insights into the nature of human beings as a whole.

    For example, like you mentioned, sci-fi raises important questions about whether we’re the only beings in the galaxy, how we humans perceive others who are intergalactically different from us and the symbiotic relationship of us humans with machines.

    On another note, considering that we Malaysians will be sending off one of our own to space in a multimillion ringgit project, it’ll be great fodder for future sci-fi writer wannabes.
