Just call me "Bobby Lou"

I saw this at Eric Beetner's blog first, and then at The Rap Sheet-

It's a program called "I Write Like."

So I plugged in "Tit-For-Tat" and I got:

What, RLS? Don't give me that look like you are about to go Mr. Hyde on me, I don't see it either.

I did this test over at Cal's and apparently my writing style is like, Kurt Vonnegut. Of course I had to look him up, see who he was.
Still have no clue but apparently, I'm good. :)

I guess I'd better put that 'Erotica Blog' on hold for awhile. Don't want that to come back and bite me in the ass when I'm a famous author! :P

I tried once, got Poe, which I understand. Tried a second time, got Lovecraft, which I don't, because not once have I written anything with tentacles.

sunshine, put some of that in, bet it comes out "Penthouse Forum."

Sue H said...

Apparently I write like Douglas Adams!

James said...

Did you do the whole piece or just a few paragraphs?

Bukowski's Basement said...

Vonnegut was a fantastic writer at times, and he certainly wasn't afraid of incorporating sex into his work. Besides, anyone who isn't going to make a living writing erotica exclusively and that doesn't want to get razzed about it later one, should always use a psuedonym.


Knowing your more obscure work, Lovecraft would not be that far off of an analogy... sans tenacles, of course.


Lucky, I would've loved that.


Long time no see! I put in the first five paragraphs.


I don't know the latter, and you are the second 6S writer I've seen that has scored a "King." How many times does one have to try in order to score a "Henry Chinaski?"


Unfortunately, you gotta put in the work.

I just tried it and got Steven King!

Sky Dad,

They must have gotten wind of "Bad Tat Tuesday," which compared to Stephen King, is the truer of horrors!

David Barber said...

I need to get back home. I feel like I'm missing out on everything at the mo. I'll do mine as soon as I can get a chance. Keep well Mr B!

Stay well, and remember that being overemployed is better than being unemployed.
