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

    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.

    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!

    Bah, this is hogwash. I just entered an excerpt from Stephen King's Misery and got David Foster Wallace.

    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.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    I heard that someone put in a passage from Great Expectations and got Jane Austen.

    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.
