Writing like a Russian
I just remembered the website I used to analyze that my first bit of writing after I came back had roughly the same word usage as a J.K. Rowling novel. Well, I just put Purity Taken into it and was told I wrote like Leo Tolstoy. Progress, I guess.
And of course, there's nothing wrong with writing like Rowling. Millions and millions of people enjoy her books. It's just that it represented a step downwards for me, at the time, but it looks like I've moved a bit back up again? War and Peace is considered a classic, so I'm going to assume it's a move up.
