I didn’t know who Cory Doctorow was. Truly. I guess if I have to compare myself to an author I’ve not heard of it’s better than realising that my work is ripped off from someone I regularly read.
Then I did the stupidest thing ever. I decided to analyse a different chunk of the same book. My NaNoWriMo book is in alternating voice; sections dealing with Jess are in first person while the sections about her mother Linda are in third person. The Jess section apparently sounds like Cory Doctorow. The Linda sections? I want to puke.
