You love to be in the middle of the action and most of your novels are fast-paced with strong ambitious characters. You are never scared to change genres. However, as a deep thinker, once you pick one, you tend to stick to it.

TAURUS: The materialistic writer par excellence
You are efficient and tenacious. You are not easily deterred by rejections. You are as stubborn as one can be and in this case, it might prove to be beneficial to you. You have a well-laid plan for getting published and you don’t let any obstacles stand in your way.
One piece of advice: don’t squash all those romantic tendencies out of your writing. Practical can sometimes end up being plain boring.

GEMINI: The Great Talker

But, like your best friends, the Aquarius, sometimes you tend to take dramatic stands on issues and you lose your grand exuberance and optimism. You are at best when you play with words or find a new way of saying something. You are a great romance and erotic writer, flirtatious with bisexual tendencies.
Famous Gemini writers: George Orwell, W.B. Yeats, Thomas Hardy
CANCER: The Seeker of Beauty
You are the overly sensitive type. Driven by the heart, you have more feelings to sort through than everyone else. The problem is you are afraid of letting them out and when you do, you come out as harsh. For your, writing is the perfect way to explore all those vulnerabilities, to dive straight into your tumult of emotions. This might lend your work a note of sadness, a noticeable darkness with a penchant for rigid moralizing. And that’s okay .
Famous Cancer writers: Alice Munro, Emily Bronte, Ernest Hemingway.
LEO: The Mighty Giant

Famous Leo writers: J.K. Rowling, Dorothy Parker, Danielle Steel.
VIRGO: The Perfectionist
You live for the details. Your editing skills are some of the best. Remember, your first draft does not need to be perfect. So, let your imagination go wild, let the words flow, and stop checking the grammar. As you are analytical to the extreme and you will dig deep to locate information, you are drawn to non-fiction, political, mystery and crime novels. You are resilient and have the patience to go over the same chapter as many times as it’s needed.
Famous Virgo writers: Agatha Christie, Stephen King, D.H.Lawrence.
