I write like…

I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

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

Which is pretty awesome, but I don’t think it’s really true… The text I used was Through the Wind, my latest FMF endeavour

  1. I found out that I write like Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Cory Doctorow, J.D. Salinger, Vladimir Nabakov, Stephenie Meyers, Bram Stoker and Kurt Vonnegut. It just depends on which story or poem I used. Anne Rice came up most often (four times). I think it does sometimes work. My vampire story I tried to write in a Bram Stoker style and that is how it came up. And the one that came up as being like Kurt Vonnegut makes sense too. But, on the negative side, when I put in three lines of the word “fuck” it came up that this was in the style of William Gibson. I haven’t read any of his stuff. But is that even a style?

    • I had Cory Doctorow on my novel exerpt, but everything else I put in was Chuck Palahniuk. I don’t quite know his work, so I’m tempted to go to the English bookstore and get me a copy of one of his novels. It made me a bit curious. I also don’t know if it’s true, btw.

      I don’t know if writing like Stephenie Meyer is a compliment… but she’s very successfull at what she does, so.. I’m dying to read some of Anne Rice’s work.

  2. I don’t even know who Cory Doctorow is, but perhaps I should find out since three of my stories are in his style.

    I’ve only read one Chuck Palahniuk novel – “Fight Club” – but that was awesome, so I’d take it as a compliment if the machine says you write like him.

    Strangely the story of mine which was supposed to be in the style of Stephenie Meyers is called “The Awful Truth”. :oP

    I’ve never read any Anne Rice, but I wasn’t that keen on the movie of “Interview with a Vampire”. “Exit to Eden”, however, I quite enjoyed.

    • Maybe you should do a little research on him. And let me know, cos I have no fucking clue who he is…

      I should read Fight Club.. And watch the movie. It is positively criminal that I’ve done neither. And I write like this guy, apparently.. I confused him with Bret Easton Ellis till last night, so you know what a clutz I am..

      Hope that’s not a clue to something :p

      Didn’t see Interview.. but do remember running out of the cinema during Queen of the Damned when I was young. And for that matter, running out of Planet of the Apes when I was even younger..
