Congrats to Jeremy Blachman on his book deal. I found out about it today from a friend. She was incredulous that there had been any significant mystery about the identity of Anonymous Lawyer, since in her opinion the writing styles of that site and Blachman's eponymous blog were obviously similar. Then again, she's a writer herself and is tuned in to such things.
She also commented that both blogs had a voice that is very close to Blachman's manner of speaking. This made me ask if I, too, write like I talk. She says yes. Is your writing style the same as your conversational style?
