Camillofan has a link to a site on a recent posting that allows you to type in your name and some other info (if you like) in order to find out what you would be if you were a book in a library. She was amazed that she, a philosophy teacher, came out as a philosophy book. But this thing is good. Look what I came out as:
And just to show that it is pretty thorough, it gave an alternative. Not being pleased with having defined my heart and my job, it had a go at my character weaknesses, with a section that includes these words:
You are very informative and up to date. You're working on living in the here and now, not the past. You go through a lot of changes. When you make a decision you can be very sure of yourself, maybe even stubborn, but your friends appreciate your honesty and resolve.
Faddy, stubborn, always restless. My word, I feel like a book - completely read!
I'm still playing with this. I put in the name of the main character in the novel I have been writing for a while. It puts him at 905 "Serial Publications" (!) and describes him with these words:
You're connected to your past and value the things that have happened to you. You've had some conflicted times in your life, but they've brought you to where you are today and you don't ignore it.
If I ever get this book finished, you will appreciate that this is stunningly accurate. And that 905 is in the overall setting of "History and Geography" for a character who spends a lot of time working on time and place - well, I think I am more amazed that it works for figment of my imagination than I am that it hit the mark for me, Camillofan & Richard Wood combined!
Now how can I find out if it does Lottery numbers?
