Christina Katz: Meaningful Platforms (Continued)

Christina is giving attendees a pop quiz of 10 yes-or-no questions every author needs to ask him or herself in building--and assessing--his/her platform. Here are a few:

Are you able to view yourself objectively? (Can you assess how ripe you are for authorhood, like an agent or editor would?)

Do you write for a very specific audience that is quantifiable and describable? (Do you know things about your audience? Do you know how many there are?)

Are you calmly passionate about your work, and able to work at it consistently and cheerfully?
