most of you already know the muse and her whimsical blog about books / art / travel.
so i'll tell you a few reasons why i particularly think she's brilliant:
she's my kind of flea market shopper: these are gems she picked up while in Paris & sometimes she sells them here.
books : when Tina was moving, she posted about needing homes for some of her beloved books. She would send you a box full, and you could just pay the postage once it arrived on your doorstep. (Seriously? i couldn't believe it-- i had offered to pay more but she explained that she would rather her books went to a loving home) above: me & Everyday Matters by Danny Gregory.
this post broke my heart.
Mr. Darcy? oh she's on a first name basis with Colin Firth.
and lastly, the muse points us all in the direction of brilliant sites : I write like... , where as Tina explains, "you can enter a few paragraphs of your prose to find out if you write like Hemingway, Chuck Palahniuk or even Bram Stoker. (There are a bunch of other authors ranging from Stephen King to J.K. Rawlings)."
(even Max emailed me this link saying i had to do it which was beyond cute to me)
though I wanted to fairly get Austen, i happily write like Margaret Atwood: Canadian author, poet, critic, essayist, feminist and social campaigner.
Who do you write like?
