"E"

The letter “E” sneaks up on thee… from all sorts of places…

Do you see it?

Also, “E” is for Ellie Lambert… don’t miss my interview with her over on my author site!  Here’s the beginning:

I sat down with Ellie the other day now that some of the excitement and chaos of the events recorded in Flight of Blue have settled down just a bit for her and her friends.

Kai’s Aunt Ginger dropped her off at a favorite local hole-in-the-wall coffee shop.  She showed up in a emerald green t-shirt, jeans with a big hole in one knee, and black flip-flops.  Her toe-nail polish matched her t-shirt, and her curly hair was giving her ponytail holder a hard time.

We sat down with our drinks, I with my black coffee, she with an iced dirty chai latte.  I noticed her choice of drink and scrapping my carefully crafted questions for a moment, asked her about it.

Me: So I noticed you got a dirty chai latte. I didn’t think you were the type.

(She deadpanned me at this point)

Ellie: It’s just a shot of espresso in a normal chai latte.

Me: Oh.

(I cleared my throat, and dug around in my bag for a moment looking for the pen that I’d already put on the table).

Ellie: Are you looking for this?

(Hands me my pen).

Me: Oh, er, thanks! Okay, let’s get started.  So, Ellie, tell me, who is the most important person in your life?

I write like…

I write like
Arthur Conan Doyle

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

So Jody started this by putting my last blog post, Juxtapositions, into the I Write Like analyzer.  That spit out Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Then he put in the post on The Little Howard, and it came up with David Foster Wallace. Yeah, never heard of him.

I got in on the action and put in my Epiphany post from January and came up with Dan Brown. Okay, that’s pretty cool right?

Then one of my opening posts on the blog Adventures in Life after the Jump and got Cory Doctorow. Who? but then a few hits later, I landed him again for the post Meet Sophie.  Guess who I’m checking out of the library next… (Update: I landed him a third time for This is a Post)

Then Today’s Randomness and got Arthur Conan Doyle.  Excellent!!

Even more fun, perhaps was landing James Joyce for A Fun Weekend, but then it is sort of stream of consciousness without the pictures…

And then finally, a woman author! I rated as Margaret Atwood for my Considering Lines posts from a few weeks ago.

Then for Jody’s and my brief conversation posted as Superpowers, I (or we) got Stephanie Meyer.

Perhaps what is more interesting is that Husband put in about 10 different things, including papers and sermons, not just blog posts and got H.P. Lovecraft every time, until he tried his senior thesis from college and got James Joyce.  So he’s apparently quite consistent in his writing style, whereas I am all over the map scoring sci fi writers, mystery writers, literature and so forth from across two centuries.  What does it mean??
