You Write Like…

So, it’s late, and I have a rapidly approaching deadline, think somewhere in the neighborhood of a few hours.  I’m a third of the way through, wishing I could magically be done, and what am I doing?  Why, I’m taking silly writing quizzes online, of course!

I found a really nifty writing style analyzer, that I hear is fairly intuitive, that will take your writing and compare your tendencies with other, more famous writers, and tell you who you’re most like.  SO… I posted the first chapter of the third Autumn book, “Autumn in the City of Light”, and this is what’s told me.

I write like
Arthur Clarke

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

Now, as a life-long classic scifi nut, I’m truly, TRULY happy with this result (because we all know how reputable and accurate internet quizzes are!).  It could have told me I write like anyone… Doctor Seuss even!  But I got the late and great Arthur C. Clarke.  What a treat!

For those of you who aren’t as familiar with this master of scifi, he’s one of the “big three” of classic science fiction, penning such classics as 2001: A Space Odyssey (which, GASP! I happen to like even better than the movie!) and a major influence on the kind of writing I do now.

So, now that I have a little boost in my step from being told by a completely unreliable source that I have small similarities to one of my heroes, I’m heading back to work with a Venti Iced Non-fat Raspberry Mocha and a Krispy Kreme donut in hand.

Much love,
