Five Questions About Branding
All About Me: Tomorrow you'll write your autobiography (or someone else will write a biography) with a focus on your writing life. What's the title?
If I write it, Cacoëthes Scribendi (read the poem on Bartleby.com)
If someone else writes it, That @$!* *&$!@# @*&%$#!
Catalyst: Your writing triggers a new literary movement. What will it be called?
Symbolic: Your marketing department asks your for something animal, vegetable or mineral that they can convert into a logo and put on all your books. What do you choose?
What else? Cheetah
Tag Phrase: A book buyer wants a brief tag phrase to identify you in their catalogue (i.e. Stephen King is frequently touted as "Master of Horror".) How do you tag yourself?
Jill of All Genres. Ha. No, probably stick with Paperback Writer.
There Can Be Only One: Your publisher asks for one word to define all your writing work. What's your word?
Amaranthine (only because they probably wouldn't let me use αμαράντινος)
Now it's your turn to define yourself: what are your answers to the questions? Tell us in comments.
