So, I entered snippets of my story, "Your Name Is Eve" from the recently released Clockwork Phoenix 3 into that widget that analyzes your writing and throws back a comparison.
Depending on what I enter, I write like James Fenimore Cooper, Leo Tolstoy, Dan Brown, James Joyce, Mario Puzo, or Kurt Vonneget.
My de Lint-inspired story, "Keys" brings me comparisons to Stephen King, and Mark Twain.
My fairy tale erotica piece, "After the Hunt" evokes Bram Stoker and Vladimir Nabokov, along with James Joyce and Stephen King.
Color me amused. Who knew I was so talented and versatile?
Current Mood: amused
A friend of mine is pretty sure she got JK Rowling specifically--and only--because she mentions Harry Potter in her snippet.
This is clearly a Very Scientific Analysis.
I got told I was 'the bastard child of Stephen King and Elmore Leonard'.
But my nickname among my reader friends is 'Phil' thanks to my first novel. :D As in Philip K. Dick.
I've been seeing all sorts of people post about this today, and I tried a couple of times myself. You and I have a few in common--James Joyce, Stephen King, Dan Brown, and James Fenimore Cooper. I also got Margaret Atwood, PG Wodehouse, and a few others I forget at the moment.
Could anyone link to the widget? My Google-fu is at an all-time low today, and I haven't managed to find it.
It's weird to be reminded of James Fenimore Cooper, it brings back memories of primary school when I devoured his books and wanted to be a forest tracker when I grow up. Weirdly enough, it was also during the war.
Also, it's good to hear from you again, Michael. :) I hope you and Mary are well. The kitties, too.
