My code is like Stephen King.  :googily:

My English writing, though, is like Dan Brown.  :whatever:

I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

Zombie story, I got Stephen King.

Movie review from BC, I got Chuck Palahniuk.

Really old Star Trek fanfic, and I got . . . James Joyce.

Speaking of :lol:

I put in the two main paragraphs of the page's instructions, copy'n'paste, and got H. P. Lovecraft.

I'm not sure that page is reliable, but it's fun.

I put in the same sample of writing twice (changed some minor punctuation): First time got Lovecraft, second time King.

I put in a 7-year-old email to Dave.  Got Margaret Atwood.

I put in a paragraph from a work that a friend of mine is editing (for pay).  It is god-awful.  I mean, terrible.  He got J.K. Rowling.  No.

An old LJ post about the time my shoulder seized up and I had to drive myself to urgent care and drove home on Vicodin got Raymond Chandler.

Another LJ post about the medical trials of a short toddler got Stephen King.  I guess it was a little bloody.

Cause you're so beautiful
Like a tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

Fuuuuuuuuck all of that. If I plonked down my manic scrawl I'd prolly get arrested.

I pasted a bio I did for a rescue mag and got Stephen King.   :nuts:

They ALWAYS come back.
I need this done ASAP, or whenever you can get around to it.  Tomorrow is fine.

I write like King, except about religion - apparently, that's straight up Dan Brown.  There was one post that was Margaret Atwood, and the World Cup piece I wrote for someone else's site was Lovecraft.  :eek:
