It has been over seven months since I last wrote for this blog. Shame on me!
Tonight, I have decided to post an article in response to Randy Seaver’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun. This week’s assignment entails the use of the website “I Write Like” to analyze your writing:
1) Find something that you have written that you are really proud of – the best of your work. Do an Edit > Copy of it.
2) Go to the website http://iwl.me/ and Paste your text into the waiting box.
3) Tell us which famous author you write like. Write it up in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog, or post it on Facebook. Insert the “badge of honor” in your blog if you can.
I chose a few of my most popular articles for this assignment, starting with “Adam Adams, Free Black, Revolutionary War Soldier” (African-American Genealogy Examiner) which won second place in the ISFHWE Excellence in Writing Competition, Category I – Newspaper Columns.
A ‘reasonably exhaustive search’” (African-American Genealogy Examiner)
