I found this on one of the Nano forums -- it's fun. Apparently I write like L. Frank Baum.

Life is like a camera. Just focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't turn out – take another shot.

Asimov, King, Joyce, Wallace, Lovecraft, Palahniuk. Cut out sections of your piece and the author mysteriously changes quite often.

Dan Brown.

Oh dear lord.

I tried with a different section and it gave me Ray Bradbury, and for poetry, it said Lovecraft. All in all, I don't know how accurate this all is, and why it seems to think I have anything in common with a mystery writer. xD

I wonder what would happen if you put those actual author's writings in there...

Just write -- the rest of life will follow.

Would love help on this.

I entered the first paragraph of Chekhov's "The Lady With the Little Dog" and it labelled it as Tolstoy. :?

In other news, it seems I write like Stephen King.

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
