... Yes, I did try out some of my attempts at writing on that "who do you write like?" machine that everyone else is having a go on.

I got Dan Brown. (Said in the same tone of voice in which Charlie Brown would say "I got a rock.")

If it helps? I got Stephen King. I'm sure as hell not prolific, but hey, if long-windedness results in movies...

For what it's worth, what little I've read of your writing, I've enjoyed. And Stephen King's not a bad writer. I've enjoyed the book of his that I've read, and by all accounts he's got a sound knowledge of what scares people.

I tried a couple of my other nanowrimos in the machine and got Ian Fleming and Margaret Attwood, but it would have to be the story I wanted to write and actually put a lot of work into that got the lowest result...

Funny, that Nano piece I posted a while back? that was from last year's attempt, and that's what gave me King... maybe it's telling me something...
