First thing I ran into this morning was a neat post by the awesome Cole. She talked about this website that will analyze your writing and tell you which successful writer your style is most like. This is completely appropriate for a Friday, because it's silly, doesn't really mean anything, and is fun to do anyway. I took a snippit of the short story I'm working on and out came this result:
This is too cool for a couple reasons. For one, I am trying to learn to write creepy passages. That's fun for me. Yeah, I'm weird. Secondly, I LOVE Edgar Allan Poe. He was the master of "creep you out" writing. Okay, Stephen King is too, but that's beside the point. Anyway, thanks Cole. This is awesome.
On another note, I've decided to join the fun of WriteOnCon. Elana's post today convinced me that even though I am not a kidlit writer, I can learn a bunch from all the other great writers who will be in attendance. If you haven't registered yet, I encourage you all to do so. It's a FREE conference. And there is already a ton of awesome people involved. What are you waiting for?
Have a great Friday. I hope everyone's weekend is filled with fun, writing, and laughs.
Note: Did anyone notice that I managed to put up a post almost every day this week? Woohoo. This could be a disturbing trend :)
