I had no idea what I wanted to post today so I slipped into stream of consciousness mode. What a zoo it’s been around here. Zoo. Right, animals. Animal. But of course, the Muppets.And I landed here:
Which Muppet writer are you:Miss Piggy
You are destined for stardom. New York Times Bestseller list here you come. You’ll shove your way to the top. Funny thing though, you often shift from an overly charming confident scribe to a fury-filled diva in a matter of seconds. “Never Before.”
KermitYou greenie, you. As a newbie, you still care enough to be conscientious with a side of timid. You go for laughs, but in that sweet, innately likable way. I know you’ll find your connection in the industry. Why? Because you believe. “The lovers, the dreamers, and me.”
Fozzie BearAs a humor writer you often end up the butt of jokes. You’re the target of ridicule when your funny flops. Though even though your “Wocka Wocka” isn’t always Ha Ha Ha Ha, you remain loyal to other green writers like Kermit.
You celebrate chickens everywhere. You root for the underdog, seeing intrigue and value in the little guys. You aren’t afraid to write your passion. Even in your bluest of blue days you remain optimistic and hopeful in the industry. You’ve a good head on your shoulders, Gonz, and a mighty interesting nose (for marketing) to boot.Beaker
Oh woe is you, Beaks. Mee Mee Mee Mee. Your work has been rejected, turned down, blown up, ignited, and utterly destroyed by critique partners and editors alike. You view your role as merely a shy assistant, afraid to bravely step out and claim your voice. You attract negative consequences. No wonder, Mee Mee Mee seems like a pretty selfish expression, Beaker. Gotta work on that.
Rowlf the DogWith your dry wit and your go with the flow, laid back attitude you know how to jam out a mighty fine novel. You’re cool, calm, and collected. And you know how to groove with the changing publishing times.
Statler & Waldorf (old guys from balcony)This is your left and right brain at war. Your editor self fighting with your creative, free-flowing self. You heckle. You throw mental tomato zingers. You’re downright disagreeable. And to think, this all takes place right inside your own brain matter.
AnimalOkay, I kinda love you, Animal. You write from the gut. You’re outrageous, and not at all one to feel compelled to write to the market. Heck, you’re a wild one with intensely unique methods of expression. Like I said, I kinda love ya!
And now I want to know…which Muppet writer do you identify with most? Least?
