I write like
Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe
I Write Like by MÃ©moires, 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?
urgh, i apparently write like james joyce.
Maybe because you also write about good whiskey?
Funny! I appear to have strains of Joyce, Chuck Palahniuk and H. P. Lovecraft…?
Wow, I can’t even imagine how much whiskey, soap and Cthulhu it takes to get to that level of writing.
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.
Vladamir Nabokov, dude. Better get my memoir chops a-crackin.
Bring that new memoir s#!t, dude.
I apparently write like David Foster Wallace. I was hoping for Dorothy Parker.
@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 DÃaz, Luis Alberto Urrea, Sandra Cisneros, Dagoberto Gil, Daniel Chacon, Rigoberto GonzÃ¡lez, Julia Alvarez, Gabriela Mistral, Piri Thomas and Eduardo Galeano.
