Writing like Stephen King, but not getting paid like him


I write like
Stephen King

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


—Or so the I Write Like website says, based on its analysis of chapter one of One Must Die, to be published in 2011. Check out your writing at http://iwl.me. Is it accurate? Who cares? If you like the results, as I do, go with 'em.

Your writing (at least the first half of When Pigs Fly) reminds me of Elmore Leonard.

You've read my writing, Bob. Would you have said that I write like James Joyce? A fun site. Virginia

Bob Sanchez said...

Gee, Virginia, I've never read James Joyce. But based on your writing and his reputation, it seems like an unlikely match-up. Are you familiar with the work of Leslie Meier? She wrote a number of light murder mysteries centered around holidays. I think your style might be closer to hers.

Cindy, Leonard and Hiaasen are names that have come up. It's good for my highly inflatable ego.

Hmmmm, I got Stephen King as well... but I report on children's books and related topics!

Bob, I'm okay with you writing like Stephen King, as long as I get to make money like Stephen King.

I write like all sorts of people... someone different for each thing I submitted. I think we all write like ourselves.

I write like someone different for each thing I stick in there too. Too funny! :p
