This is a bit of fun, go to the website and enter a few paragraphs of a story. It will then examine it and tell you your style. Not very scientific I'm sure but good for a laugh.
My results were-
Sci-Fi Short= Dan Brown
Ghost Story short= J.K Rowling
Zombie Novel first part of chapter 1= L. Frank Baum
Sea Monster short (set in 16th century)= Robert Louis Stevenson
HA! It says I wrtie like Stephen King! I wish! This is really fun.
It said I write like David Foster Wallace when I put in my Sci Fi piece. I'm blown away, I love his work.
When I put in one of the zombie stories I have written for the Library of the Living Dead, it said I write like Douglas Adams.
I've tried a few different stories and each time came up with someone different...so perhaps I can't be pigeon-holed, which is fine to me!
lol...it said I write like William Shakespeare..must be the accent! HAHAHAHA
well..after typing in Tennyson it said Margaret Mitchell....John Donne came up Daniel Defoe..hahaha the bible came up as Ernest Hemmingway....who in turn came up as Kurt Vonnegut...so I'm tempted not to take it to heart..hehehehhahahahah good fun though!
I got Stephen King more than anything else when I started plugging in some of my stuff, but I also got Dickens, David Foster Wallace, and Dan Brown for different pieces I plugged in, heh.
I'm Margaret Mitchell, I'm inclined to agree with GB. Must be our accents.
James Joyce -- the man who guaranteed I will never eat kidney!
Based on 5 different excepts I got three names: Margaret Mitchel, Stephen King, and David Foster Wallace.
Dialogue heavy scene = Dan Brown
Sex scene involving a werecat = Stephen King
Attack of a giant robotic penguin = Magaret Atwood (wait, what?)
Madness and insanity are sometimes classed as variations on a theme. There are some who, in fits of madness, do terrible things, others who in the grip of insanity do things ordinarily abhorrent to their nature. Normally there are factors for such mental breakdowns. The common belief being that the mad person does not know they are mad. This however was not the case of the Father Lewis, who knew that he was not fully compis mentis. But to do Gods work in this filthy world certain principles had to be erased. Certain morals would have to lie by the roadside, rotting like everything else in this forsaken Eden.
Doesn't really sound Shakespearian does it? lol
You said forsaken. Definitely Shakespeare.
Damn! Ya got me! Forsooth 'tis a goodly cop!
Dark contemporary piece - Stephen King
Contemporary piece - Douglas Adams
Surrealism piece - James Joyce
The most recent WIP - Cory Doctorow
I got Neil Gaimen when I used my Letter from the Dead: Shit House Poet
I just put in my Letter (the one where pretty much every word is intentionally misspelled) and it came back James Joyce.
I ran three little pieces I started thought and came up with this. First, Oscar Wilde. Second, David Foster Wallace. Lastly, Margaret Mitchell. I wondered of it was just random, so I ran the same piece through three times. It came out the same every time.
hahaha my 1950's-set superhero story is apparently written in the style of JAMES JOYCE!
My Fearology 2 sub is like WILLIAM GIBSON?! wow
and my Jonny Cave stuff that appears on New Bedlam is like DOUGLAS ADAMS
