I Write Like…

I write like
Edgar Allan Poe

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

I inputted the last series of CantoMundo write ups and this is what I got. Ok, note to self, time to actually read some Poe. Yeah, I know the hits but reading a broader range of his work couldn’t hurt, especially since Poe is a Bronx poet. ;-)

Shout out to Scott Keith for putting me on to I Write Like.

Ok, who do YOU write like?

Author: Oscar Bermeo

Born in Ecuador and raised in the Bronx, Oscar Bermeo is the author of the chapbooks Anywhere Avenue, Palimpsest, Heaven Below, and To the Break of Dawn. He lives and works in Oakland, CA.

  1. I got Stephen King — which is really weird. Anyway, why do I get the feeling that this site only has white male authors in its database?

    On Stephen King: I’d love to write like him. His ON WRITING was one of the first books I read about the daily work, grind, and joy of revision, submission, and publication.

    On white male authors: Yeah, it sure seems that way. I had been hoping my writing would be more like Oscar Villalon or the like.

  3. @Luivette Resto Thanks for visitin’ the blog, hermana.

    The litany of white male writers continues. I may just have to make up my own list with: Judith Ortiz Coder, Isabelle Allende, Junot Díaz, Luis Alberto Urrea, Sandra Cisneros, Dagoberto Gil, Daniel Chacon, Rigoberto González, Julia Alvarez, Gabriela Mistral, Piri Thomas and Eduardo Galeano.
