I write poems like James Joyce, according to this writing analyzer
That's a popular quiz; I keep seeing it all over Facebook, Twitter, LJ, and elsewhere. Apparently I write like Poe!
I write like
Stephen King. And I don't read most of his stuff. Go figure.
I tried twice - first was James Joyce - second was Douglas Adams. Have to admit I've never heard of Douglas Adams.
eye've bean tolled thaht I rite lyke taht potsre on FSU naymd Pani?
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!
Robert Louis Stevenson
Bah, this is hogwash. I just entered an excerpt from Stephen King's Misery and got David Foster Wallace.
I just typed in a few verses from the Bible. This is what I got.
I write like
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. I think there's a limited amount of choices.
Author of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- a really funny writer.
I heard that someone put in a passage from Great Expectations and got Jane Austen.
H P Lovecraft. Go figure.
The Bible = Bram Stoker......
My reports are Dan Brown but the fiction I attemped years ago is like Margaret Atwood, LOL
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 , James Joyce for both the NLT and KJV.
Second time I was Bram Stoker
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?
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.
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.
The two fiction entries and a post: Kurt Vonnegut
A sales letter I wrote: David Foster Wallace
Grading comments to student: J.K. Rowling PML!!!!
Biographical excerpt came up Stephen King.
Business stuff Cory Doctorow.
I write like him too -- at least when I'm writing a cover letter for a resume! I need to find my master's thesis...
I used my most agitated long post ever. I got Dan Brown. Someone sells books writing like that?
I didn't even like Fight Club!
