I Write Like...

Apparently, the software thinks that I am David Foster Wallace
. I got seven
results saying that I write like him.
But then I also got:
- 3 Dan Browns
- 1 Mary Shelley
- 1 Stephen King
- 1 Douglas Adams
- 1 William Gibson
- 1 Oscar Wilde
That link is just for fun and entertainment, but it's interesting in some respects. I got David Foster Wallace for each of four different sections from my fanfic, "The Cloak". Nice and consistent. However, when I analyzed the Darth Vader diary paragraph from the Prologue of that same story -- which is very different in tone -- it told me I wrote like William Gibson. Huh.
The other three David Foster Wallace pieces along with the Dan Brown trio, plus the Mary Shelley and Stephen King samples were from non-Star Wars SciFi short stories I've written (or started).
The Douglas Adams was one of my favorites from a few years ago: Star Wars re-told as a fairy tale. I still crack myself up re-reading that.
Another of my favorite TFN viggies, "The First", was labelled like Oscar Wilde
Thanks, TKL. That was fun.
The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.

Oh boy, Lex.
My earlier Star Wars works got William Shakespeare and Cory Doctrow.
For To Suffer and Be Strong
I got Cory Doctrow. So sci fi... that's good.
For the beginning of The Great Escape
, I got the ever-popular result of David Foster Wallace.
Then I ran one of my recent press releases and I got Arthur C. Clarke. So apparently I write news in the form of science fiction as well.
I still want Blood Oath.
