I don't know about you but I grew up with the P word. I daydreamed constantly, aka Procrastinating, so naturally I became a writer. I didn't know what I was doing then, but now I call it incubating and put up a "do not disturb" sign on the back of my laptop! So today I was Procrastinating, um, incubating, also cover for "gathering pertinent information for my next project" and I happened upon Nathan Bransford's blog starring a double rainbow. Not bad for inspiration.
As I skimmed the comments I came across another way to spend valuable time and quickly decided to share this little gold mine. It's called I Write Like... Of course I entered my prose and here's the results:
First I entered my Writer bio from this blog and I got Dan Brown. Cool. I just finished reading Angels & Demons. Love the adventure suspense and he has a helluva story going.
Then I entered a blog post and I got David Foster Wallace. I've not read anything by him so I have some research to do. His essays reviews sound pretty wild. Do I write wild? Introspection is definitely fodder for Procrastination but not nearly as fun as daydreaming.
And then I entered a few paragraphs from my novel that is contracted and unedited at the moment. I wrote the prologue like Dan Brown, that's twice now for Dan. I'm on a roll. And I wrote the first chapter like Mario Puzo. Mario Puzo! Well now, I have some stories...
Champagne and caviar all around! (This rocketed my ego to the stars.)
Please post who you write like!
