    That's a popular quiz; I keep seeing it all over Facebook, Twitter, LJ, and elsewhere. Apparently I write like Poe! :scream:

    I tried three different snippets from blog posts, and apparently I write like David Foster Wallace....(off to wikipedia to see who the hell that is)....who apparently got such a kick out of writing he committed suicide at the age of 46....good to know I've got a few good years left! ;)

    David Foster Wallace for one

    William Gibson for another.

    I always considered my work more like JD Salinger. Granted there is little to no relevance in this process as exhibited above.

    Two paragraphs equated to Stephen King and two different paragraphs to David Foster Wallace. :rofl: I think there's a limited amount of choices.

    It's according to the passage and the translation. I used Revelation 21:1-4, and got Kurt Vonnegut for NIV, Dan Brown for The Message :lol:, James Joyce for both the NLT and KJV.

    Depending on the excerpt, I write like:
    1) David Foster Wallace,
    2) Cory Doctorow, or
    3) Dan Brown.

    I'm still laughing over the results for the Bible. Bram Stoker? :D

    I got James Joyce 2x and David Foster Wallace.

    I'm not really found of either James Joyce or David Foster Wallace, so I'm going to choose to believe it's because those are the defaults, and my writing is so profoundly originaly (and profound), it had no where to go besides factory settings. :p

    I used two creative writing excerpts that I wrote and I got Stephen King, then I used an English essay I wrote and I got Chuck Palahniuk. I then used a short Poli-Sci homework assignment and got Cory Doctorow. Then I used a longer Poli-Sci assignment and got David Foster Wallace. I'm gonna analyze all of my papers now to see who else I am.

    LMAO. I posted 3 paragraphs from an old Harry Potter fan fiction I wrote and I got JK Rowling.
