I Write Like My Hero!

I WAS visiting Laura Miller's art journal blog - look for her link over on the blog roll at the right - and then went to visit l'Astronave's blog (also on blog roll). I really should be doing my hair. I'm late for a date with relatives!! Argh! They will probably read this someday so I will have to be truthful about my whereabouts! Not that I would have lied, anyway. They never expect me on time.
Anyway, on l'Astronaves blog I saw she had submitted a blog post into "I Write Like" and got her answer - she writes like David Foster Wallace - so I thought I would quickly try it.
My jaw dropped when I saw who this analysis says I write like: Chuck Palahniuk. Oh my gosh! My hero. I've always wanted to take this Portland writer's class "Writing Dangerously."

I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

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

Life can't get better than flattery like this - femminismo

Congratulations. My biggest fear is to be told I write like Enid Blyton.

this made me think of who I would like to write like - Natalie Goldberg came to mind - I find her books quite inspirational!

I had to google that author, and learned he writes what he calls "transgressive fiction," including "Fight Club"!

I'm Laura Miller's daughter and she recommended that I visit you. What a thoughtful and inspiring blog you have! Glad I stopped by!

Oh great. I write like Stephen King. So I took it again with my "real" writing and find that my "real" writing is like --brace yourself -- Vladimir Nabokov's.
Va va voom! Say, this was fun, Jeanne. Thanks much. (Now I really like Chuck, btw. If you write like him, do you really need to take that course?!)

Take care!
