This was challenging and inspiring. I really enjoyed taking the survey. However, I could not save the results of my profile, there seems to be no option for that. Other than that little disappointment, I found it to be fun.
I agree. It was an enjoyable and stimulating challenge. It will keep your grey matter in the pink and you'll come away learning a little bit about yourself and your writing. On the last page you can give them your email address and they'll send you a copy of the report when the study is concluded.
This is an interesting exercise and I participated, because I don't write much fiction and was curious. It gave me my first taste of writing flash fiction and I like it!
The experience has encouraged me to read more of the fiction on HubPages as well.
The writing profile provided at the end of the survey turned out to be much more accurate for me than I had expected, so I highly recommend participating in this study. It is challenging enough to be engaging and does not take much time.
I think the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania is on to something good!
I was happy to come across this. I participated last night before I went to bed, and it was a really neat experience. I have never taken a creative writing class. So, the information given was great to receive. I like the idea of all writers having a thinking, giving and healing component in writing. -pretty cool, and I agree.
I did the survey, and I agree, it was thought provoking, and a good creative exercise, and I hope, hope, hope I win a prize! Should we all post our flash fiction stories here? Would that be allowed? Or any other ideas for sharing those? I am curious to see what people did with that.
I like the idea of posting the flash fiction stories at a Hubpages board. If someone does this, please provide a link here. Also did anyone save the photo that was used to stimulate our stories? That would be helpful to see.
I did not even think of saving the image. Darn ! My photo was a man standing in the middle of a city street with hundreds of shoes scattered all over the street. I thought of the shoes as memories of the people he had known along his path to success. What was your photo and what impression did it give you?
Yes it looks like we all had the same photo. When I started reading the stories everyone wrote, I noticed how all the stories seemed to follow a pattern, almost like following a storyline. I don't think they and this intention, but a full length story can be put together from all the various flash fiction blurbs. Very interesting outcome.
This "Inner Writer Study" was a very educational experience. It didn't take much time at all, and I ended up being creative with a flash fiction story.
This is something I never actually experimented with before, and yet, I found it easy with the method they taught - starting with thinking of a goal based on an image, then writing a short story leading to that goal. I posted my fiction story in the other forum.
I thought it was an interesting and enjoyable exercise. My writer profile was accurate, too. I especially enjoyed creating the flash fiction story. I'm going to try writing more flash fiction - it's fun!

Does anybody know of a good and affordable online Masters of Creative Writing Course they can recommend? I'm ready to do my masters but don't want to do it in education, would rather do it in something I love.
This one is going to be fun! What I've observed on the forums is that there are a few, kind of unwritten cliques of hubbers who consider themselves 'experts' in almost everything and kind of try to 'educate' newcomers...
