What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Western. Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

And if you're not from the West, you are probably one of the following:
(a) A Pittsburgher - the quiz can't tell the difference;
(b) Someone from Canada (probably southern Ontario) who doesn't have a Canadian accent;
(c) Someone from northern New England who doesn't have a New England accent; or
(d) Someone from Texas or the Heartland who was born after 1980.
You are definitely not from New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Detroit, the Deep South, etc.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

That would be "(c) Someone from northern New England who doesn't have a New England accent" I suppose, though I'm from smack in the middle of New England.

So, at some point after I did this post, the site got tweaked and now there are links to a vanity publisher and a hook to collect email addresses. I trust my friends are savvy enough not to buy into the bull. Some of you are already published, others I know are still hunting publishers, and all of you know that you should be paid for publishing your book and not pay out for it. So for the random passers-by, have fun with the toy if you want (though using it will likely increase the Google search rank of the vanity publisher) but don't supply an email address and don't follow the links.

NaNo '06 - This one was a fantasy novel set on an alien world.

I write like
J. R. R. Tolkien

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

NaNo '07 - This one was a cyberpunk novel.

I write like
Mario Puzo

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

NaNo '08 - This was steampunk with plot flailing issues, it's probably actually two stories all scrambled together.

I write like
Dan Brown

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!


Let's try that again, from the middle of the story rather than my "opening day" writing (even if I do like my opening scene):
I write like
Edgar Allan Poe

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I can live with that, especially considering how the stor(y|ies) developed.

NaNo '09 - Urban fantasy with so many problems I may end up cutting it up into a collection of short stories or novellas to save the interesting bits.

I write like
H. G. Wells

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

"Possessing a rare combination of wisdom and humility, while serenely dominating your environment you selflessly use your powers to care for others.

"Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."

I think this might be the most surprising "personality quiz" result I have ever received.

Well, not quite yet, first I need some input from people reading this.

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] joisbishmyoga:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

I'm making a list using my original characters, mostly from my NaNoWriMo stories. I will include tiny character biographies in the post where I answer the questions just so people have some clue about who I'm writing about.

Assuming I actually get asked some questions.

For the doll folks reading, yes, many of these characters have doll plans attached, though a lottery win might be required to fund them....

It's been a while since I spammed folks with a quiz thingy. So have some personality quiz spam:

Your result for Awakening the Hero Within: Hero Archetype Test...

You are the Destroyer.

67% Innocent, 38% Orphan, 46% Warrior, 54% Caregiver, 67% Seeker, 25% Lover, 75% Destroyer, 54% Creator, 48% Magician, 58% Ruler, 67% Sage and 33% Fool!

Goal: Metamorphosis

Fear: Annihilation
Response to Dragon/Problem: Allow dragon to slay it

Task: Let go
Gift: Humility

Addictions: Self-destructive habits like alcohol or smoking, suicide

The Destroyer is central to metamorphosis. The void that the Destroyer leaves in its wake is more profound and debilitating than the abandonment experienced by the Orphan. The Destroyer often is a person in the prime of life, who has a fully developed identity and a belief in their ability to cope. One is not a Destroyer because of wrongdoing. The experience of misfortune can either cripple or be transformative. Sometimes we succumb to madness or cynicism, but sometimes we can let go of the old and open to the new.

The Destroyer is also the transformer. Rebirth, after all, follows death. At best, a Destroyer can be revolutionary, subverting and destroying harmful and repressive systems.

Shadow Destroyer:

All acts of self-destruction and totally destructive acts are those of the pathological Destroyer. The Destroyer turns us into villains when we refuse to acknowledge and take responsibility for the inevitable harm we do.

I think the results might be a bit skewed by my general level of depression, but I can't actually say it is wrong.

If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Your result for The Social Persona Test (What kind of man/woman are you?)...

The Renaissance Faire Wench (QLAF)

Quirky Liberal Alpha Female

The hardest part about being the Renn. Faire Wench is that people often mistake you for a beta female. This is not so. You might be quite flirtatious, but you are hardly relient [sic] on men. You like to do things the mainstream would consider weird, (like dress in costume, perhaps?). Eat, drink, and be merry, but make sure whoever you date respects you and does not take advantage of your laid-back attitude. (BTW, you are likely the only type who can see That Creepy Guy (NLBM) for who he is, helping him to bring out the Manga Geek (QLBM) inside. This does not mean you have to date one, however. You are quite flexible and can enjoy the company of many of the types.)

You are more QUIRKY than NORMAL.

You are more LIBERAL than TRADITIONAL.

You are more DOMINANT than PASSIVE.

When picking a date, consider: The Lord of the Misfits (QLAM), The Fratt [sic] Boy (NLAM), The Snowball's Chance in Hell (QTBM), The Manga Geek (QLBM), or That Creepy Guy (NLBM).

I made the baked pasta dish again tonight, this time adding a 15oz can of diced tomatoes (seasoned with basil, oregano, and garlic). I baked it for 35 and 15 minutes and it turned out perfect! That little bit more moisture and tomato did the trick.

And for fun:

You Are a Carrot Cake Cupcake

You are a complex person. You have many interesting layers to your personality, though others might not know it.

You are drawn to a cross section of people. You friends play different roles in your life.

You are like a cupcake because you are are deceptively simple. There's actually a lot to you!

There are many ingredients in your life, and you only want them in proper amounts. Being you is a delicate art.

Your result for The Steampunk Style Test...

The Citizen

39% Elegant, 52% Technological, 67% Historical, 40% Adventurous and 23% Playful!

You are the Citizen, the embodiment of steampunk’s everyday side. You realize that there is far more to a rich, living environment than adventurers and lunatic engineers. For every gentleman-scientist or airship fleet admiral there are a dozen or more “ordinary people” who prevent the genre from devolving into a mass of cardboard caricatures, and you take pride in exploring the great diversity of a steampunk world’s population. Your clothing could easily come from any social group or society, and you are equally liable to dress upper, middle, or working class. However, the unifying feature to your fashion sense is that it does not get carried away with “looking steampunk,” instead creating a person who could have just stepped out of the crowd in a novel. Some people may claim that your style is too close to historical accuracy to be steampunk, but fortunately you know better.
