Nothing to do with Genealogy, but . . .

. . . It's intriguing, all the same.

I write like
Kurt Vonnegut
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I participate in a private mailing list of people I've known in cyberspace for over 30 years, some of whom I've actually met face to face, and from whom I've experienced kindness and true friendship.  One of them took this little test.  So I thought I would, too.  I entered three paragraphs from my blog a couple weeks ago about the doctor in St. Augustine who committed suicide in the first decade of the 19th century.

And the badge above is what I got.  So I write like Vonnegut, eh?  Well, well.

Well it says that I write like Stephen King and I am not sure if that is saying much. I can see it now, "Christine - The Runaway Ancestor"

Karen! I write like Kurt Vonnegut too. Only the text I entered was a little different than someone committing suicide - it was my humorous posts about Samford.

Hey, Thomas -- you really oughta write that!

It says I write like Margaret Mitchell. I'm getting a big chuckle out of that because my grandmother's maiden name was Margaret Mitchell!

I write like Arthur C Clarke! As you say, very intriguing :-)

Oh, Jo, my goal is to write like Arthur C. Clarke! He is in my pantheon of writer-gods. If I can just get beyond Vonnegut! :-)
