    No wonder I feel like I missed my calling.


    Any other potential novelists here?

    I put in some stuff I wrote a year ago and it says I write like Dan Brown.

    I put in some stuff I wrote in June, and it says I write like David Foster Wallace.

    Not surprising, since my style has changed. I wouldn't say it has improved, but I have adapted it to what my work requires. So it fits the job better.

    However, I put in some stuff I wrote a couple of weeks ago, and it says I write like Ursula K. Le Guin.

    It seems to be all over the map.

    I had an idea for a movie script last night. It would be a sci-fi movie set in 2020.

    I plan on starting a non-fictional book later this year. Wish me luck.

    Oooooh! I have a memoir coming out next year, so I pasted in a couple of chapters to see what it said. Apparently I write like Douglas Adams!


    Which is awesome and flattering, because I adore him, even though I don't see the resemblance, myself

    here's a nice song by Jimmy Buffett that was inspired by Mr. Twain

    Douglas Adams! That's great!

    Mario Puzo

    Apparently, the constant struggle between squirrels and rabbits reminds the program of Sicilian Mafioso.

    Hm, out of curiosity, I did the rest of my book in sections. I get three recurring authors: Douglas Adams, David Foster Wallace, and William Gibson. I'm not familiar with the other two, though...guess I have to check them out.

    For fun I did a couple sections from WT literature- One guy wrote like Kurt Vonnegut and the other like James Joyce- I guess writing like someone doesn't automatically give you good ideas to write about.

    I submitted two different samples and got: Dan Brown and then H.P. Lovecraft. LOL!

    Well i had a dream that i was back out in FS,

    and everyone in the car was told to pop a happy pill (anti depressant)

    so the HH could see that we were the happiest people

    on earth. I'm not a writer but that's some good stuff

    to put in a book.
