I write like...

I ran a chapter of mine through this analyzer and got this result:

I write like
Anne Rice
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I'm sort of ... stunned.

Especially because it was Captain Devlin's Captive, not Vampire Close.

So then I ran a chapter from a non-fiction book I'm working on

I write like
H. P. Lovecraft
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!


I could only hope to write like him.  That would be so cool.

So, if you try it, let me know in the comments what you get!!!


  1. I don't know if I would admit to writing like an insane man who was only truly appreciated after his death.LOL LOL

  2. I tried two different chapters (one toward the beginning, the other toward the end) from Destined to Choose. The result from the early chapter said I write like Kurt Vonnegut; the result from the latter: Stephen King.

    I'm going to try a few more, including from the new book, just to see. Interesting that both results are male authors. I wouldn't mind at all being compared to either of them. :-)

  3. Oi! Lovecraft is my hero, dammit!!! :)

    He wasn't insane....just really quiet and misunderstood. I can relate. ;)

  4. Oooh!!! Vonnegut!!!! That's a good one.

    Not to say Stephen King isn't, of course. :)

    Another friend of mine got Stephanie Meyer and she was SOOOO hurt. I'm like, but hey, it means you're really popular and commercial! Look at it that way! :)
