"I Write Like..."

These things always amuse me. I paste in the latest volume of "The Fall of the Sea People" and get:-

I write like
Rudyard Kipling

I Write Like. Analyze your writing!

Yet when I paste in my unpublished Victorian historical fantasy I get:-

I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like. Analyze your writing!

And, just for good measure, if I paste in my contemporary short story, "Essence", I get:-

I write like
Douglas Adams

I Write Like. Analyze your writing!

I won't tell you who I get if I paste in my drabble, "Lucy's Omniscope". If you really want to know you will have to try it for yourself.

Now I am sure they are all fun and interesting authors. But perhaps I write like me.

A Jealous Muse

I've been terrible at updating this thing. I discovered that I couldn't simply write the third volume of my five-volume fantasy without also writing the other two, which has taken over all my writing time. This does mean I have built up a bit of a backlog, though, and the remaining three volumes should come out pretty quickly now.

I'll try and update more in 2014 but I'm not going to promise anything. My muse is very demanding and she doesn't really approve of 'blogging. Or social media, or anything, really, that takes time away from her.

Meanwhile, happy new year to all my readers and thank you for your continuing support.
