Fiction Friday: I Write Like....


Stephanie Meyer.

That's what it said: Stephanie Meyer.

If you have zero idea what I'm talking about, check out the NPR story here.

To find out who you write like, submit a writing sample here.

Update: I just submitted another sample (the Gladwell post below) and now it says Ray Bradbury.



This may sound strange, but I'd much rather be like Ray Bradbury than Stephanie Meyers.


Update #2: Using the zucchini post (below the Gladwell post), it now says Margaret Atwood!

Yay!

Hmm. Is it possible I have a consistency issue in my writing?

I used the beginning of my first book, the beginning of my second book, and part of a blog and got Stephen King, JK Rowling, and Oscar Wilde.

Frankly, I think it only looks at certain words and phrases!

You are multi-talented, multi-personality. Yet one of a kind.

Mine said Jeanne Raisin :) kidding...

Hmm, funny concept. Pretty sure it's only looking at words, and maybe sentence length. I'll bet you write just like...you!

SkylersDad said...

Ha! I got Steven King!!

I submitted a blog post on one of those generators and it told me "Steven King"

That spooked me enough to not try again. ha!

Consistency is overrated :p I'll do the test when I get home tonight.
