Which author are you like?


Thanks to Writemindset for this little procrastinator from o'faust. You can paste in your writing and find which author you resemble.

It picked up that in my Nano "novel" I'm writing for children so it's not completely wrong.

Wow! That's cool. What a fun thing to try.

Sarah Laurenson said...

My MG is 34% Frank Baum and my YA is 22% Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Interesting stuff.

Good luck with writing whether or not you reach the 50K goal. Sometimes those accidental novels are the best.

My last blog post cranked up 16% Twain (body hair and intestines, I suspect), an extract from my WIP registered 28% Wilde (right or left leg, I guess) and a letter to my bank generated a system error.

Hi Natalie!

Sarah: you're even more Baum than I am. Thanks for the good luck wishes.

WO: What a brilliant idea to try a bank letter. I wish I'd thought of that.

Natalie said...

Mine came up Baum, too! At 49% for my Blood Dragon MS. Wow.

fairyhedgehog said...

That's a lot of Baum, Natalie. I can't help wondering if you put the whole MS in.

Apparently when you start dropping words like "magic" and "dragons" and "emerald" and "ruby" in the first chapter...that's what you get, heh.

So that's the secret! I did use the word "magic" twice.

Hmm, I put in my elevator pitch for EE's site and I got Frank Baum. So I put in the Unexpected Package (I wrote part 2 today! I know what's in it!) and I got Frank Baum again.

So I put in two scenes from the short story that I'm doing in a nanolike fashion (some short story, it's currently 7170 words) and it came up Leo Tolstoy!

I wonder why it likes Frank Baum so much? I did like the last one though :)

Maybe Frank Baum is the default setting.
