10 Ways To Know A Story Was Written By Me - and Blog Party Continues

Woo hoo! Fabulous Blog Party / BBQ / Labour Day Weekend Fest going on over at Karen G's. Sign up and visit lots of blogs to 'find a bunch of awesome new followers'!

A propos of the word awesome, click here to join The Society for the Appreciation of the English Awesomesauce, aka Lord John Grey. I've even made a badge :-)

And Kait's next installment of Forsaken by Shadow is up, here!

And now, to business. Writerly, business that is. Susan's got a great post on 10 Ways to Know A Story Was Written By Me.

10. There's a Tolkien reference in there.

9. Someone quotes a line of poetry at some point.

6. Lots of grinning. 'Nuff said.

5. There's at least one paragraph of expository omniscient writing.

4. Cats.

3. The sea figures prominently.

2. The themes generally involve a journey of some kind.

And the number one way to know I wrote the story:

1. There's at least one word in another language, if not ten...

Thanks Michelle and Karen!
Oh no - knitting! I haven't knit a stitch all week in favour of writing. Guess that's somewhat of a good thing, no?

Does that mean you know a lot of languages? Cause if that's true, you're stories will be great!

I know a handful. I really wish I could learn more Welsh but it's not popular enough for anyone to offer, you know, free night classes downtown or something :-)
