who do you write like?
So we all know what I write. Spicy, hot, paranromal, twisted fairy tale, romance. So which author would my writing be most like?I had to find out. There’s a great site called I Write Like where anyone can post a sample of their writing and through the magic of their algorithms you can see which author your writing style is most like. So I had to go and see who I wrote like (duh!).
I chose some scenes from my latest WIP, Prince by Blood and Bone, the sequel to my book The Dark Huntsman that releases next month. The first one was an action scene and the second was a love scene. Both of them came up:
So I wondered if I tried a third scene what would come up. Using the very first scene in the book, click HERE to read, I now had:
Wait a minute! I write fairy tale romances. Don’t I? How did I end up with such dark authors. Horror even!
Curious to see if this held true for The Dark Huntsman, I chose three more scenes. Two action, one love scene. Anne Rice came up AGAIN for the love scene, and for the action scenes I now had:
Who I had to go look up. This is what came up:
Charles Michael “Chuck” Palahniuk is an American novelist and freelance journalist, who describes his work as transgressional fiction. He is best known as the author of the award-winning novel Fight Club, which also was made into a feature film. Wikipedia
Freaky huh! I write romance.
So, I wondered if my lighter, spicy, new adult, fairy tale romances, Twisted Tales: Come Into the Woods, would come up the same. Enter Goldi and the Bear…
So, I guess my lighter fairy tales are a little lighter. If you think Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christe are light. But not much. And if you like sex á la Anne Rice, (well…and who doesn’t?) then I’m your gal!
Have you ever analyzed your writing? It doesn’t have to be fiction, it can be anything. The analyzer doesn’t care. Wonder what my grocery list looks like? Maybe Dean Koontz? Who do you write like?
