Ran some posts through the "I Write Like" converter and got the following results... I write like:
Cory Doctorow (I don't know if he wrote about purslane)
Margaret Mitchell (I chuckled contemplating what she would have written about The Plasmatics... I'm picturing Rhett Butler telling Wendy O. Williams, "My dear, I'm too scared to tell you that I don't give a damn.")
H.P. Lovecraft (oddly enough, in one of those rare posts in which I didn't use HPL word par excellence "outré"- a BBBB fave)
Ray Bradbury ("The Bastard Chronicles" or "Something Bald This Way Comes"?)
David Foster Wallace (I think "I write like" is a jest, although not an infinite one)
Kurt Vonnegut (Frankly, I am flattered, even a little embarassed)
Spider Sense (sorry, Jennifer!) tingling, I decided to test "I Write Like" and popped one of HPL's most famous paragraphs, the opening to The Call of Cthulhu, into the converter, and got:
I write like Arthur C. Clarke.
Stupid "I Write Like"
ADDENDUM: In the "Wendy O. Williams" version of Gone With The Wind, Wendy herself burns down Tara.
CORRECTION TO THE ADDENDUM: In the "Wendy O. Williams" version of Gone With The Wind, Tara is made out of televisions, and Wendy drives a school bus through it, ensuing in its destruction.
