While reading through the blogs I follow, I found a link to I Write Like (http://iwl.me/).

I was surprised to learn I write like Dan Brown, Kurt Vonnegut and Stephen King. Maybe this is one of the reasons I can't interest an agent in my "kid's stuff". [Hey, you scrounge for excuses where you can find them.]

After reading from the link, I went back and entered:

This time I got "Neil Gaiman".

and

king kong was really wrong, he wrote short stories way too long
Which comes out to Kurt Vonnegut.


Harry Potter
Bugs Bunny
Ulysses
Charles de Galle
George Washington
Bella Swan

gets a James Joyce result

It's not totally random, though:

Not to harsh on anyone (and certainly not to reflect ill of Kay!) but this is our third thread on the topic this week. The others have been combined and currently reside in Office Party. Feel free to go partake of the merriment there.

Happy Writing,
