Jack London? Very cool.

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

Fellow Elevensie member Randy Russell had this fun test on his blog. I tried it with two different ms and both times came up with this. Give it a try - it's good for your ego.

Thank you for all the cover love comments on the art for DOGSLED DREAMS. I have the best commenters!

Dammit, I got Stephenie Meyer. I quit.


Your list is thorough, I like it.

Marcia said...

Oh wow. I analyzed four book chapters. I got: William Gibson (I don't even know who that is), Nabakov, Margaret Atwood, and James Joyce. I won't be posting a little banner on my blog, I don't think. Fun, though!

Caroline Starr Rose said...

Jack London -- how appropriate!

What did you think of the Hatchet series? I adore it.

Anne R. Allen said...

Like Marcia, I tried a couple of different chapters--openings of two chick lit novels. One came out as William Gibson (inventor of cyberpunk) and one was James Joyce. Do you suppose this means I write literary cyberpunk chick lit? Interesting genre mashup. It's fun though.

Hmmm...apparently I write like someone named William Gibson. I've never even hear of him but now I suppose I'll have to read something of his!
