So, what a fun little algorithm thingy. I write like Margaret Atwood and a bunch of men. There’s my halloween costume!
Atwood: Canadian, novelist, short storyist, other stuffist. (Very incisive style.)
Doctorow: Canadian, novelist, blogger.
King: American, novelist, other stuffist. (I like his tips on writing. His horror is compelling, and maybe I agree with his comments on Stephenie Meyer. Maybe.)
Wallace: American, novelist, essayist. (“Consider the Lobster” is pretty dang awesome. His commentary on Kafka is great, too.)
Nabokov: Russian, novelist, short storyist. (I’m not very familiar with Nabokov, but I do appreciate Russian literature quite a bit.)
These authors are all rather dark, but I trust the algorithm thingy uses keys words and syntax to determine common styles. This doesn’t mean that I’m trying to deny the melancholy or macabre in my stuff, I just find it all very interesting.
