i write like …

thanks to neatorama i found this link that compares your writing style to various famous authors. i’m sure it is about as accurate as i am at picking the ncaa basketball tournament winner each year (i always come in second in my tournament bracket pool while never having the final two teams right) but i still thought it might be worth a try. in order to be accurate i posted multiple entries from my blog into the analyzation page and it consistently said i write similar to two writers. they are:

I write like
Stephen King

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

and …

I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

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

this is great because i like both of them though they both sometimes write things that i am not comfortable with. there have been a few times where i have reached the point in some of their works where i choose not to finish a book because i was pretty disturbed by the material (“haunted” by palahniuk is one of the book i just stopped). yet i am still drawn right back to additional works. in fact, i absolutely love the book “fight club.”

so if these test are accurate i probably offend some of your guys pretty regularly, maybe even scare you, but you still find yourself coming back for more. i can live with that.

  1. I just tried it. My style is like Chuck Palahniuk. Never heard of him, but I’ll bet he’s awesome.

  2. And I wonder whether there’s even an algorithm, or if it’s just a randomness generator……
    I’ll have to read some Chuck.
