Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Match dot huh?


My dreamboat


Here’s a quiz that tells you which classic author is your soulmate. Turns out I’m a fine match for Anton Chekov. We’re going to get a place together in the country and take long walks.

I was kind of hoping for a chick, but I don’t think Jane Austen and I would have much in common, and Emily Dickinson seems a bit standoffish.

Take your shot, and report back here with the results.

  1. It’s Oscar Wilde for me. Some good times, for sure.

    Langston Hughes. Never read anything. Does this make me a Philistine?

      No, but you two should have a great time getting to know each other.

    I got Ernest Hemmingway. I like the results.

    I got Virginia Wolfe – wish I’d have known Hemingway was in the mix – might have tried for him.

    You got: Henry David Thoreau

    “You want a man who’s simple, self-sufficient, and hardworking. A man who loves nature and flouts public opinion to create his own movement. A man who doesn’t even have a Twitter or Facebook. The two of you can live together, out in the tranquility of the woods, with no Wi-Fi, no electricity, no human contact whatsoever…actually, maybe you should retake this quiz.”

    I like that last line because he seems more like my ex husband who lives alone in the wilderness, and is gay, than my current husband, who is a rocket scientist.

      This is screwed up. I did a retake and selected totally different answers except for two. I love my computer as a writing tool, and I can’t give up on Tom Hanks. Got the same Henry David Thoreau.

      So sometimes it actually IS rocket science…

    Henry David with my first pass. No offense to the man, but he’s not really my cup of tea. Tried again and got Jane Austen. Much better. (Darcy be d*mned.)

      Henry doesn’t seem the marrying type anyway, and that’s all Jane can think about. Sounds like you got yourself a love connection!

      PS — Sue got Henry too!
