I Write Like

I wanted to check this cool, cool analyzer that based on a text can determine what sort of author I emulate. Here are my tries.

1) "Drumming" - Should sound Victorian... Should sound like Austin. In reality I write like

I write like
Stephen King

FAR away from the intended tone and voice, though it has some horror moments.

2) "Cosmi Love" - Should sound like a fairy tale. Simple and airy.


I write like
Ian Fleming

Ian Fleming. Gee, I can live with that. :D

3) "Crimson Cacophony" - No idea. I have no expectations.

Can you spell unexpected. Man, really? Not bad, eh?

4) "BITE" - Horror fairy tale. I assume Lovecraft?


I write like
Anne Rice

Nope. Anne Rice. I am not complaining.

In conclusion, this was fun. It's totally random and the analyzer is statistical than anything else, picking on words and phrases these authors used and it does not testify for quality. What I am pleased with is the diversity with which I tell the stories. Sure, the topic dictates what words I will use, but at the same it's reassuring to know that I am using words with a focus and idea of what I want to achieve. It shows diversity. I need a post on this.

Yeah, I heard a news story on this but it didn't give me any result when I pasted in part of my writings.

Frankly, when I found out the site was just a ploy to advertise vanity publishing services, it kind of turned me off to the whole thing. :)

Like most discoveries I make, this one is rather late, but to be honest the ego boost is quite pleasant. The tickle it brings to be compared to such grand names is intoxicating and it is stated by an un-biased arbiter, a machine, so it makes it count, because the machine has no ulterior motif.
