I invited around 70 writers/bloggers to write a piece about whether or not they're typical of their sign, and how its traits affect their writing life ~ if at all...

Another mercurial Gemini today: young writer, lover of old books and one of the Novelistas group, Haydn Lee, who writes 'a pastiche of mystery, horror and psychological exploration'. She's had a few pieces published in anthologies and the (now sadly defunct) UK Young Writer magazine.
Tell us about how being a Gemini affects your writing life, Haydn!
I create my characters first, taking inspiration from everyone around me. Although I’m not at all talkative around strangers, I love watching people and am fascinated by their quirks. This demonstrates the typical Gemini’s curiosity for the world around them. I read voraciously from all genres, again showing my Gemini curiosity and a wide range of interests. One day you’ll find me reading Proust, the next a biography of a 1950s movie star. I’m versatile in writing many genres as well: stories, plays, poetry, and odd scenes from imagined film scripts."
