|Post subject:||Survey of Fantasy Writers and Readers|
I have been asked to advertise a survey of fansasy writers and readers, being conducted by a aboygoesonajourney.com
Â· It is a non-commercial and blind survey; participants do not need to register or provide their name or email address.
Â· The questions are based on a number of varied assumptions and stereotypes people have about themselves as fantasy writers, and about how others view them.
Â· If you wish to view the survey to make sure the questions are appropriate and relevant, the link is
I am very interested to see the results when available.

I'm the one to blame for this survey
Basically, in my internet roamings, I've seen and heard lots of assumptions and theories about 'what makes a fantasy writer' in habits, personality, clothing, music. Some of these things don't really seem to connect at all.
The patterns I did seem to notice from people's postings were that people on one forum were more likely to have author loyalty than another forum, that fan-fiction seemed to be on the rise and that the majority of people on various sites had grown up around other readers of fantasy.
I have a list of things that I had assumed about fantasy writers (or got annoyed about) and this survey is proving quite a few of them wrong, although the one about most fan fiction being from Harry Potter is fitting well.
The survey will end the 20th of December 2007, and then I will analyse and present the results against general assumptions and we can all have fun discussing *cougharguingcough*over it.
If you have any comments, feel free to post here or email me at email@example.com.
Thanks for participating! [/b][/u]

Just an update.
So far the survey has had over 230 responses!
Unfortunately in the past week, I changed the website software and had some hard times trying to get the survey running up again. Because of this, the url has changed to
http://aboygoesonajourney.com/index.php ... &Itemid=46
Also I have decided to run the survey now till the 10th of January. If you had trouble getting there in the past week - I'm sorry! Please try again now

Well it's been a long few months, but I finally have fought through the problems caused by updating and the family drama that is Christmas and other holidays, and have the survey results!
Thank you all for participating!
