Having a bad day? Rain and/or heat got you down?
Before you hit the bottle or kick the dog, get a low fat, no calorie, environmentally friendly, completely ridiculous pick-me-up at I Write Like (http://iwl.me/). It’s free, it’s fun, it’s completely unscientific.Just cut and paste a few graphs of your writing and discover your literary DNA (just don’t take it too seriously). Here’s mine:
I pasted in a portion of the blog post “What is a Family” for this head-swelling analysis. Later, I dropped in a a few sentences from another post and came us as a dead ringer for Dan Brown!
After some thought, I decided I’d prefer to write like James Joyce but be as rich as Dan Brown. Wouldn't you?
Unfortunately, they don't tell you how to do that on this blog..
After you’ve had your palm read – so to speak – check out the I Write Like newsletter, complete with interesting quotes from some of the great writers of the last century, including this gem:

— Margaret Atwood
So, keep writing, just like whoever, and yes I said yes I will Yes.
