My friend Carolyn Kellogg at the LA Times’ fantastic Jacket Copy book blog had the most clever post today. She found a website — called I Write Like — where you can enter a few paragraphs of your prose to find out if you write like Hemingway, Chuck Palahniuk or even Bram Stoker. (There are a bunch of other authors ranging from Stephen King to J.K. Rawlings).
If you write like Jane Austen, you win a special prize — a date with Colin Firth! (Joking.)
I was surprised to learn that I write like Kurt Vonnegut. I had no idea Mr. Vonnegut used so many exclamation points in his prose, but I applaud him!!
