I submitted a creative nonfiction and got Salinger. Interesting. I've always been told David Sedaris, but I imagine he isn't one of the results you can get.

It's pretty depressing how you never come on here Nightshade. Must be some common link. :)

Sorry, just been very very busy. Working 11 and 12 hour days. And on my days off I usually am out running errands or enjoying the parks. Don't spend a lot of time on the internet anymore.

I was once told by a reviewer that I write like JK Rowling. :)

Getting reviewed would be so nice. I envy you.

Reviewers are weird. Focus on character development/romance development for one chapter instead of the main plot, they complain. Focus on developing the plot for one chapter instead of the budding romance between two characters, they complain. Write a scenario unrealistically, they complain. Write a scenario realistically, they complain because said series is set in Japan and the characters' reactions aren't culturally appropriate (apparently, teen pregnancy is perfectly acceptable in Japan as long as the girl is married because it means she can have children?). Write the characters in-character, they complain because their reactions aren't totally realistic. Have the characters react realistically to something, they complain because it's OOC. And finally, my biggest pet peeve...write the most epic chapter in your entire story that features everything--adventure, plot revelation, character development, torture, drama, internal conflict, and a BIT of romance--and the one thing they comment on? The romance.

...yeah. Like I said, reviewers are weird. I'm grateful for them, don't get the wrong idea; they're just...weird. Sorry to get off-topic.
