I thought I might try that 'I Write Like' thingumajig that's doing the rounds with a passion right now. Plugging a little of my novel in and finding that I apparently write like Stephen King (which, lawks a lawdy, I don't, nothing like!) I found myself merrily sticking in random bits of fics wot I wrote and it seems, going on samples of Chasing Rainbows, Wind Whispering, A&O, I write like HP Lovecraft (cool, if unlikely). The Sentinel Affair and Angel Dust both threw up the unusual choice of Mark Twain (Angel Dust? Mark Twain?? What the...? O:!). A Child of God came up, like the novel, as Stephen King and Blue plus a random ASJ fic, Jumping Frog (which is named for and references a Mark Twain tale) apparently remind said meme of Chuck Palahniuk.

But best of all, I put in a random bit of typical blather from my LJ and got:


I write like
James Joyce

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!





Personally, I think that meme's been drinking.



How are you all, btw? Long time, no whateveritiswedohere. I hope you are all happy and well.

I dunno. I think the James Joyce one makes sense. Made me chuckle at least. :-D

It's certainly come up with some... original comparisons all over the place :)

Hee! It's a bit addictive, isn't it? Stephen King appears to be quite a popular one...

I think Stephen King is the fall-back. [livejournal.com profile] tazlet got William Shakespeare, and [livejournal.com profile] sara_merry99 got Margaret Atwood when she put in some academic work. I was King, James Joyce and Lovecraft. The Lovecraft was for a bit of steampunk I'm fiddling with. It's not my usual. I think the Joyce was more a comment on my punctuation abilities than anything else. *g*
