Myself as a writer

So I tend to think of myself as a writer, right now mainly a hobbyist or amateur. However I wouldn’t be against the idea of becoming freelance or partime in the future.
On a related note, I took a survey for writers a year back online. I saved a lot of the content to my computer because answering those questions enlightened me to new possibilties and reflect on what I can accomplish as a writer. So I wanted to share my answers to the questions (though I skipped the Horror writers section) to give a sense of the type of writer I see myself as.
