I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!
I pasted in two different sections of my NaNo novel, and I got the results of Kurt Vonnegut and Chuck Palahniuk. I'm a little surprised, and kind of impressed -- especially considering it's a sci-fi/romance! :)
It says I write like Stephen King.I don't think so, but I'll consider it a compliment. :)
I did this a while back. Depending on the excerpts, I kept getting Neil Gaiman, J.R.R. Tolkien and Ursula K LeGuin. The results were consistent. Fun stuff.
Like Robin, I write like Stephanie Meyer. When will my mega-royalty check be arriving?
Apparently my novel is like Dan Brown (I don't like his writing, so this was just too ironic) and my blog is like Arthur Clarke (I've never read any of his work, only seen the movie Space Odyssey). This was funny! Thanks for sharing!
I tried sample from three different books and got three different answers. Totally unedited piece I just started: Margaret Atwood. Finished suspense: Neil Gaiman. Finished UF: PG Wodehouse. :shrug:
I write like Shakespeare. Which probably means I learned my English by reading Hamlet and Macbeth (which I did, among others) and that I'm woefully out of touch with modern colloquialisms. ;-)
Alternately, it's James Joyce. No idea what stylistic idiosyncrasy triggered that one.
Hmmm. Apparently I don't write like anyone but myself. The program didn't work for me though I tried three separate samples. Figures...
tried samples from the two published books: palahniuk. Which I've never read, but yay for consistency, I suppose. And a nice balm to the dudes who've mocked my work as "second rate george romero knockoff" lately.
Apparently, I write like HP Lovecraft. I'm not sure I like that...
Apparently I write like Rudyard Kipling. Interesting!
That's really freaky. I tried several stories from two of my universes and one seems to be consistantly written like Rudyard Kipling, and the other consistantly like Anne Rice. Apparently I change style from universe to universe. For me, the most interesting part is that I've never read anything by either author.
Wow! I am totally flattered to find out I write like Stephen King. Stephen King! I've only read one of his books and it scared the life out of me, so I never read any more but just about everyone I know loves him.I have often said on your blog that I can't write for toffee, prefering to read but after this I might just re-visit the book I took my paragraphs from. Oh I can feel my head swelling .... I've never read Anne Rice either but I'd say you write like Lynn Viehl, one of my favourite authors.
