Late though I may be - and I'm *way* later than Angie - I wanted to try it, it did sound like fun - and it was. The first thing I submitted was my first post for this blog - since I couldn't think of anything really good I'd written. It came up with this:1) Find something that you have written that you are really proud of - the best of your work. Do an Edit > Copy of it.
2) Go to the website http://iwl.me/ and Paste your text into the waiting box.
3) Tell us which famous author you write like. Write it up in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog, or post it on Facebook. Insert the "badge of honor" in your blog if you can.
Since I wasn't familiar with this author, I googled his name,
"Howard Phillips "H. P." Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction, especially the subgenre known as weird fiction." I do enjoy reading Edgar Allan Poe and Terry Pratchett (among other authors), but I I decided to double check things, and looked around my hard drive for a book I wrote during NaNoWriMo  thinking to copy a bit of it (I wouldn't consider it my best writing, but it's not a blog post). While I was looking, I found a little piece I wrote as an exercise. "The Witchy House" I barely remembered writing it, but I liked it and thought it was good, so I submitted it (totally missing the inference in the title). What do you know?
Well. While I quite enjoy reading these types of books, I also read loads of others. I had no idea that style would show in my blog posts. [By the way, that book of mine? It's in the style of Bram Stoker.]

 NaNoWriMo refers to the National Novel Writing Month. As they say at their web site, "National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30." Try it, it's a great exercise in writing.
