Quiz: What Color Lantern Would You Be? | Writers Group 1



(taken from my attempt at an online writer’s group one year ago today. Enjoy! Sorry about t g e photos not coming thru…)

I’ve been taking quizzes lately. Not on any important matters, but sometimes a writer need some fun! (Of course, writing is fun. If you’re writing what you want.

Have you heard of the Green Lantern? Basically, Hal Jordan find a crashed alien pod containing a dying Green Lantern. Alien dies, Hal takes over.
