Well, through Lisa Vooght of Flash Fiction (yes, she appears a lot here because we’ve become really good friends on this newfangled internetty thingy). She had writing analyzer site on her page entitled I Write Like.
So, I was curious. I write fiction on Tale Spinning. There have been a couple of interviews (some printed; more to come) where I get asked about my style. The best answer I’ve had is: I’m a creative chameleon. I think it fits me best, at this point. Writing what interests me at the moment, and playing with genres and styles, has left me open when I’m asked that question. Lisa asked me to take some of my work and put it in the analyzer.
So…to maybe answer the question of I Write Like…
Neil Gaiman The Kistune-Mochi and Tora Baku
Chuck Palahniuk The Unfolding Doll: A Tale From the Abysmal Dollhouse
Kurt Vonnegut Bridge and Troll Authority
William Shakespeare Sonnet: Unto Forever
Gertrude Stein Lev’s Love
Anne Rice The World That Holds Love
That is some combination of writers. I’ve linked the stories I chose to analyze so you can make your own mind up. This was a fun exercise for me. The links are below. Let me know if you agree or not.
