This is a fun little widget. My NaNoWriMo work comes up with Mary Shelley and H.P. Lovecraft. My recent writing here produces Anne Rice or Cory Doctorow. So, apparently I don't write like any authors I actually like -- except Mary Shelley.

Neat widget!

My older stuff for Sira gets and even split between Anne Rice and Agatha Christie. Almost all of my new stuff gets Stephen King or Rowling.

For my posts for Daniel Jackson I get a different author for every post just about. Slightly more Dan Brown.


I got a complete hodgepodge of writers from my post results, too. My Musings posts got the following results: Stephen King, Leo Tolstoy, Anne Rice, J. K. Rowling, Dan Brown, and Vladimir Nabokov. My Give Up the Ghost posts resulted in: Margaret Atwood, Daniel Defoe, Dan Brown, Cory Doctorow, and Mario Puzo. Craziness!

What a cool find, Lirssa. Smile

Very neat widget, though I have no idea about the work of James Joyce. Anyone read his stuff?

Familiar with lots of his work, but only read a portion of Ulysses and a few of the stories out of Dubliners. I personally like his writing, but some people find it...umm, I don't know the word. Daunting maybe? He uses stream of conscious a great deal.

I read Portrait of an Artist when I was young. VERY stream of conscious. It's one of those books I've always wanted to reread because Joyce is so well regarded but I don't think a 17 year old forced to read him in school appreciates that!

Whew. The writing in Beware the Seeds You Sow is just off the freaking charts good. It's so tightly written. Really, really great.

And man, Stardust and pockets. I really, really love when I've been following a thread for a while, and then something just pays off. It is so freaking satisfying. And that one was very moving. Just love it.

Thanks to all for the positive feedback. I'm so delighted you all have enjoyed it. I appreciate the patience of all my writing partners as I work through this family transition, and it's been so much fun (and I'm grateful to Jewell for) being the kick off to the bigger SL.

More to come!

Just FYI:

Harvey is still lingering over the house -- lots of rain here, but no flooding around me. All is safe and sound for now. Expecting more rain over the next few days, but drainage seems to be going as well as can be expected.

Hope others who were/are in the way of this storm are fine.

Cheers!

So, yes, Lirssa has died. While the scene was tweaked slightly to go with the lead up, it is as I roughly envisioned it several years ago.

There is no fanfare. A life lived. That is all.

That being said, I do not put any barring against your character learning or not learning of this. That is entirely up to you. In my imagination, the various foster homes learn of this through communications from street kids, but I make no presumption on how or if the news travels any further.

This folder will transform slightly. I am not giving it up to the catacombs just yet.

Thanks for reading, and most of all thanks for writing. You all inspire me.

Carry on!
