The Events Leading to This Quiz...
"Writing a quiz for your enjoyment takes a lot more work than you would expect. Here's a quiz on the work involved to make this quiz."
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
This quiz happens to be an author's challenge, a title I found that was challenged by kyleisalive. I liked the title, so I began to think. I didn't want to just take the title without a solid idea. Which of these would NOT be a reason I wanted a solid idea before accepting this quiz title?
So I didn't have to keep changing categories as I got new ideas
So I didn't need to edit my quiz after I wrote it
So I knew how I'd work up the quiz, making it easier to write
So I didn't give up and delete the quiz
Now that I've accepted the quiz title, I need to choose a category. I originally chose thematic fun as my category. But there are many subcategories in the thematic fun section. What is the BEST subcategory to put my 10 question quiz into?
Thematic 10 Questions Easy
Thematic 10 Questions
Leave it in Thematic Fun; the editor will put it where it needs to go
Leave it in General; the editor will choose Thematic Fun for you
Uh oh, now that I've written a few questions in the quiz, it's looking like this would work better in a different category. Is it possible to change categories?
Usually, I try to save my quiz after every question. There is a very good reason for doing so. Why do I save my quiz so often?
So the editor can edit one question at a time
So I don't lose any of my hard work
Because if you don't, the question will disappear
Because if you don't, the editor won't accept the quiz
It is always a very good idea to check your quiz for spelling before you submit it to the editors. I, personally, like to edit my quiz after each question. If I were to edit this quiz correctly, I would have realized there was a misspelled word in this vary question. Normally, I would have changed this error before I submitted the quiz, to prevent getting a correction note, but for the purpose of this quiz, I have left it in there. Can you find it, and type in the correct spelling of the word?
While writing this quiz, I could not think of a good question for this very question. I had no idea what to write, and it took me a while to actually come up with something to put in here. What have I just experienced?
This quiz writing is hard work. Now that I've finished my quiz, I'm ready to submit it. Since my quiz is a Quizmaker Tuneup in the General category, and since I am not an editor, who will eventually put my quiz online to be played once it is ready?
An editor from the General category
I can put the quiz online directly
No one; it's been online and being played this whole time
After I submitted my quiz, I had to wait for it to go online. Though it didn't take very long, it felt like an eternity. When you're waiting for a quiz to go online, even 3 days seems like forever. As I waited for the quiz to be checked by an editor, I went in to the quiz and clicked save. What happens when you do that?
It is automatically put online
The quiz goes to the front of the queue, so it goes online faster
The quiz goes further down the queue, making your wait longer
It is taken out of submission and you will have to resubmit
An editor finally checked my quiz, but instead of putting it online, they gave me a correction note. They told me to carefully check my quiz for apostrophe and spelling errors scattered throughout. In addition, question 7 needed a bit of reworking to make more sense. I fixed question 4, and found all the apostrophe errors, but I could not find any misspelled words, and my spellchecker couldn't either! What's the best thing for me to do now?
Resubmit it; maybe the editor made a mistake
Rewrite each question to make sure there are no more errors
Delete the quiz; obviously I can't write
Kindly ask the editor to point the errors out for you
After I finished fixing all the errors in my quiz, I resubmitted it to the editors. This time it was checked within a day, and it went online. I got a note in my mail from the editor saying it went online, and they sent me a nice note saying that they really enjoyed the quiz, and it was a pleasure working with me. What would be the best response to such a note?
Finally, I thought you'd never put the quiz online!
Delete the note and then the quiz
Thanks, but I'm not a good writer, it was you who made it good.
Thanks for putting it online, I enjoyed working with you too.
