Who do You Write Like meme  
Ok, this is a funny meme - I've tried it with five pieces of mine and got Chuck Palahniuck, Daniel Defoe and James Joyce! The only one that doubles up is Edger Allan Poe. I think I'll keep him! He's a touch misogynistic, among other things, but I'm going to hope that's not what I share :)


I write like
Edgar Allan Poe

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

Who is this Chuck Palahniuck guy whom we all apparently resemble?
Kalypso: Jarrierekalypso_v on July 13th, 2010 07:22 pm (UTC)
Ah... Fight Club, apparently. It seems improbable.

That's rather what I thought about it as well - I think when it says you write like Chuck Palahniuck it just means 'modern' :)

Perhaps he does a lot of dialogue? The piece I fed in was mostly that.

-->He's a touch misogynistic,.. <--

you are right Valderys :) , but I like some books from Edgar Allan Poe.
He wrote with a sort of intelligence, kinda crazy, but if you reads between the lines subtle.

I like that about Poe too - I saw an experimental drama piece a while back based on loads of Poe's short stories and I have had a fondness for him ever since. It was great - the audience wandered, masked, through a huge building all done up as in his stories, and they were acted out at random times as you wandered through - no-one got quite the same experience. I loved it!

He was a good writer, scary as hell!

And I have a fondness for the angsty, if not the macabre, so it sort of fits... :)

I got Chuck Palahniuck and Daniel Defoe too... that was with poems. I did put some prose in as well, but I am not even going to admit who it said that was like. I am actually offended by the comparison!

I am unconvinced, to say the least!
Valderys: Macauley Connor - intellectual snobvalderys on July 15th, 2010 02:06 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, I'd agree with that - a bit of fun, but complete bollocks, frankly! Because, really, I write like James Joyce? I find that more than a little preposterous! :)

Quite. I'm sure you use more than one verb every forty-odd pages for a start!

Some of the results I have heard of since (a recipe for blue-cheese sauce in the style of Charles Dickens apparently) has made me wonder if it's not just completely random. In the context of my own result, I find this quite a comforting thought! Possibly Daniel Defoe and Charles Dickens might find similar comfort.

I tried it with five pieces of mine. The results were Jane Austen, Dan Brown, Margaret Atwood, and the ubiquitous Palahniuk, whom I have never read (bis).
Valderys: Macauley Connor - intellectual snobvalderys on July 15th, 2010 02:08 pm (UTC)
Well - Jane Austen and Margaret Atwood are very nice - but Dan Brown? Really? That's not as flattering as you might want! :) And while I liked the film, I've never read Fight Club...
