Saturday Night Genealogy Fun


Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings offers us the following challenge:

Your mission this week, should you decide to accept it, is to:

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.

My response:

I chose my story The Keeper and the Egg.  I posted it for the letter M for the A to Z Challenge on 15 April 2017.  It is something that I wrote 14 years ago dealing with relationship struggles and loss.

That name certainly never entered my mind!

The following is a snippet of the description of J. K. Rowling found on the I Write Like site.  Click here to read the full description.

“Joanne “Jo” Rowling, (born 31 July 1965), known as J. K. Rowling, is a British novelist, best known as the author of the Harry Potter fantasy series.”

I also put in my first Wordle poem, The End of Me, that was posted 2 August 2016, just to see what would happen.  I’ve never heard of this writer. Have you?


The following is a snippet of the description of Harry Harrison.  Click here to read the full description.

“Harry Harrison (born March 12, 1925) is an American science fiction author best known for his character the Stainless Steel Rat and the novel Make Room! Make Room! (1966), the basis for the film Soylent Green (1973).”

This was an interesting post idea, I thought.  I would love for my writing to be as well-received as J. K. Rowling’s writing is.  Since I have never heard of Harry Harrison, I know that I will have more reading ahead of me to learn more about him.

Have a blessed night, y’all!
