Shayara, Jessa's untitled story, a very pornographic passage: James Fenimore Cooper.
Shayara, "My Empire for Ashes": also James Joyce.

Kinky porn, yet.

I just entered "durpty durp" for a few "paragraphs" and it told me I wrote like Harry Harrison. o_O

Heeee. ^_^

Sound about right to me.

I would just like to know why it thinks my explicit but incredibly fluffy romantic stories are like Chuck Pahlaniuk.

'Shayara, Jessa's untitled story, a very pornographic passage: James Fenimore Cooper.'

There are not enough Ws, Ts or Fs for this.

I put in both the intro and the first couple of pages of Young Blood, and it told me I write like Stephen King both times. Could be worse, I suppose. Bonus fact: I've never read anything by him.

Hmm... So I put in my latest LJ entry that was an excerpt from a conversation, and it says I write like Stephen King.

I went back and found my rant entry about why I deleted my Facebook account a few months ago, and guess what? Stephen King. Guess I'm a one-trick pony. And a bit psycho.

Aaaaand then I pasted the above comment in to try for the meta thing, and I got James Joyce.

K then.

And now I just plugged in a long bit of Neil Gaiman and it said that he writes like Chuck Palahniuk.

(Who? Look it up.)

Okay, I need to stop with this and go to bed. Damn you and your Daily Doubles, Trebek.

Heaven help me, it thinks I write like Dan Brown.
13th-Jul-2010 04:24 am (UTC)
Vampire porn: William Shakespeare.
Blog post: Stephen King.
Wonderland porn A: Dan Brown.
Wonderland porn B: Chuck Palahniuk.
Cyberpunk porn: Raymond Chandler.
SF porn: Stephen King.

...do I have any other porn I can put through it... hmmm...

Nope, but I have terrible fantasy that should never see the light of day: Vladmir Nabokov.

Meta?: Chuck Palahniuk.

Um...

I don't even know.
13th-Jul-2010 04:27 am (UTC)
Post on passive aggression? Charles Dickens.

OK then.

It seems that I can plug nearly any chapter of Tales into IWL and it says I write like Douglas Adams.

This isn't terribly surprising; I write glib, humorous, dialogue-driven material.

I plugged in a scene from an unpublished vampire story and got Stephen King. Then I plugged in 4 scenes from Antlered Bird, got Dan Brown for the opening scene, James Joyce for the ending, and Margaret Atwood for all the scenes in between.

I knew that beginning needed work.

I'm convinced it's keyword searching.

PG Wodehouse when I write about Sailor Moon;
Dan Brown when I write about religion;
Lovecraft when I write about Sylvia Plath.

I pulled different paragraphs from a single essay (I think one of the followups to Damned Harp) after becoming frustrated with its results, and got Stephen King on the paragraph with the cussing and (someone else, forget who) on the paragraph without the cussing.
