Oh My!

I found a blog quiz over at Polona’s, Scabiosa Trenta and grabbed my Menehune Mushrooms story to check my writing style. This is what I got:

I write like
J. D. Salinger

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

Whoa! I feel my head expanding even as I type this! 😉

And then I ran Mina and The Carousel through the checker and got this:

I write like
Stephen King

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

And how did Strawberry Fife fare?  The checker says:

I write like
Margaret Atwood

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

I’d like to think that means I am very eclectic, but I think it means I have a diverse vocabulary and subject matter. Especially since Days of Wine and Murder earned me this dubious award:

I write like
Stephenie Meyer

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

  1. I used an excerpt from the novel I’m working on (the one I’d posted on my blog before) and it said I write like William Shakespeare. Does this mean only a select few can understand it? haha!

  2. i would say that means you have your distinctive style which does not copy any of the famous authors. and i find it enjoyable 🙂

  3. With three different tries, I got David Foster Wallace (not familiar with him), Oscar Wilde, and James Joyce. I’m going to have to play with this a bit more when I have time. I wonder how they make these determinations.

  4. My first entry compares my style to Margaret Mitchell. Talk about head swelling! Ha – can a Pulitzer Prize be in the making – I better start writing a lot more than I do. 🙂
    I’d have to say though that I’d be more like Margaret than George Orwell – I would never write like him. I must have had an off day with that selection.

    From the comments I’d say each of us including you has diverse writing talent and the ability to hold the interest of our readers.
    Of course I’m here after Doug and suspect he’s 100% accurate but for these precious few moments in my mind I will be entertained with the notion that just perhaps I could be the next Margaret Mitchell. 🙂 If only for a few moments……
