INSPIRED BY ........

Many thanks to Vicki over at THE WOLF'S DEN who it turns out WRITES LIKE ......

Curious to find out just who I wrote like, I visited a site called I WRITE LIKE, entered the following paragraph

Something I'd thought about for a lot of years, it was my late Nana's insistence that we were related to the Rowntree family that finally decided me. That, and the very first episode of Who Do you Think You Are - A BBC tv programme in which 'celebrities' trace their family trees.

Now as lots of you are aware I love (with a capital 'l') my chocolate. So much so that people have been known to joke that it is chocolate that runs through my veins, that when I cut myself I bleed pure chocolate - imagine then how excited I was to think that Nana could be right and I might indeed be related to JOSEPH ROWNTREE, founder of the chocolate dynasty.

to be informed that I wrote like .............

STEPHEN KING.

Hmm, not too sure just how they work that one out.

So, who do you write like? Go check out the above link and let us know.

Also inspired by another blogger, many thanks to Traci at 38 AND GROWING for her SEVEN LINK CHALLENGE which prompts us to post seven things with regard to our blogs. (My answers are given in red and can be viewed by clicking on the links.)

  1. Your first post. HELLO.
  2. A post you particularly enjoyed writing. EVERYBODY SAY "CHEESE."
  3. A post which had a great discussion. CHILDREN, GROWING UP TOO SOON?
  4. A post on someone else's blog that you'd wish you'd written. Oh dear, so many to choose from but in the end I'd have to say Jenn's ST.JOSEPH'S SCHOOL OF NURSING firstly because of her wonderful tribute to her mom and secondly for the beautiful cake (pictured right) that she made.
  5. A post with a title you are proud of. SPLAT.
  6. A post you wish more people had read. AS MY NANA WOULD SAY.
  7. Your most visited post. CANNY GOOD GRIEF, SHE'S USING AAL THOSE FUNNY WORDS AGYEN. WHAT'S SHEH TAAKIN ABOOT?
A great theme don't you think, quite nostalgic. Why not take your own walk down memory lane, I'd love to read what you come up with.

And finally, inspired by all the competitions out there, if you haven't already done so please check out my Competition/Giveaway Page by clicking on the link at the top of the page.

A fine selection of posts.

I write like P.G. Wodehouse - and James Joyce! As I used paragraphs from my cosy mystery, Wodehouse may be reasonably correct, but Joyce - I don´t think so.

Have I told you one of my characters is called Jesmona Rowntree? (Probably one of your relatives as she has a great sense of humour ;D)

Oooh, wish I wrote like Stephen King.

Am off to check out some of those links.

I wish that I could write the kind of stuff that Amp Saowaluck sings, but I can't. And I know that I'm no Stephen King. But I enjoy what I do.

Thanks for a thought provoking post.

All the best, Boonsong

Great post! I've heard about this site, and it sounds like fun. Said that I wrote like Cory Doctorow, which is a little awkward because I've never read his books. Is he even a he, or a she? :o

Heard that several people got Stephan King, so they thought that he was the default answer. Tried several other passages, but it kept insisting I wrote like Cory Doctorow. Need to go read Cory, I guess! :)

I think they might've connected you to Stephen King because of the word "bleed" and "dynasty". LoL Just a guess though.

Apparently, I write like "Margaret Mitchell".

David Foster Wallace. I had to Google him.

Kelly said...

This was great fun!! I used something I did for a writing site some years ago and it said I wrote like Arthur C. Clarke! Can't imagine how it came up with him, but I'm okay with that.

Jenners said...

That is a cool little meme.

And I write like Stephen King too!

Steven King? Must be in the cadence. I don't have time today but that sounds fun. I want to find out who I write like and would also love to work with the other exercise. That will involve me learning how to add links to other posts. This could be interesting. And fun- I really want to learn more about how to put my blog together. Thanks!
