No merchandising for you, Mister.

Okay, here is all I have to say on the subject.

At the 3 day music festival where I volunteer the week before Pennsic there is half an hour between acts. Getting the musicians' merchandise in and out, things sold, etc., in that half an hour so that one band could get its stuff gone and the next could get its stuff in was a nightmare. And it meant if you didn't get it right then, you couldn't get it, since it disappeared when the band left.

So they set up a booth that sold all and only merchandise for the bands. It is staffed by volunteers. The event makes no money from it, it all goes to the artists. The bookkeeping is a bit of a pain, but otherwise it works fine--the artists get their money, the patrons get their music, and logistics in the venues are better.

Just a thought.

So, I did the "You write like" meme.

I submitted 4 samples. Like everyone else I got a "Dan Brown." I think it defaults to that if you write short paragraphs with lots of action verbs.

But for the others I got:


I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

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




and


I write like
Lewis Carroll

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




and


I write like
James Joyce

I think I'll quit while I'm ahead.
