There's a link tearing through the world of writer blogs and I just had to check it out... Find out which famous writer you write like.
So, I went to the site, pasted in a scene from the book I'm writing, and got the result:
I've never actually read anything by Chuck Palahniuk, but I have seen the movie Fight Club - which is awesome - and have decided I am completely badass (Chuck wrote the book. Yes, we're on a first name basis. We are identical writing twins, after all).
And if a movie version of my book were to be made, I'm 100% positive that Brad Pitt and Edward Norton would be in it. I'll ignore the fact that there aren't any adult male characters in my book and just focus on Brad and Edward and my badassness. Actually, I do have a black-haired, crazy, female baddie in my story and if my book were a movie, Helena Bonham Carter would be perfect for that role...
Okay, it's sorted. Helena be my baddie and Brad and Edward can feed me grapes off set while I'm lounging around, hanging with the director and other actors in my movie. Sounds perfect, right?
Anyway, its a fun little link and you don't need to be a writer to try it out. You can stick in text from anything you've written, even blog posts, to see which famous writer you write like.
Now I'm off to my library to check out a book by Chuck, to see if I even like his writing style. I might cry if I don't.
Happy Monday, folks!
