anyone lived in a pretty how town

I like e e cummings a lot. The titles of the My Blood Approves series are all taken from the poem "since feeling is first" by e e cummings.

So I really like this video because it reminds me sort of e e cummings (particularly the poem "anyone lived in a pretty how town, ") and it's a little steampunk-esque. So it's fun and pretty and enjoyable to me. As such, I'm sharing it with you.



And I analyzed my writing on some website by copy and pasting five chapters from Ascend, and it says that I write like one of my favorite authors. And it's since it's on the internet, it's completely true and accurate. That's always fun, right?

  1. Can't analyze mine-I'm afraid it would say I write like a fifth grader or something equally nasty.

  4. EEkkkk!!! I wouldn't be able to look, I'm so hard on myself, I would tremble and pee myself before the answer came to me.... peeking out between my fingers, like a child watching a movie too scary for them.

  5. The first five chapters of the novel I expect to release later this month, "Shackled", garnered me Leo Tolstoy!

  6. Thanks for the writing tool. It is an amazing find. Software like this is something that helps to reinforce the talent in all of us. The knowledge that we are able to analyze our writing objectively on demand is a very helpful way of inspiring confidence.

  8. I also love e e cummings, especially that poem. There's something so lovely about the rhythm the words make and so cool about how it makes sense even though the words seem out of order.
