Oh thank god.  
So with massive trepidation, I tried that writing analyzer that all the cool kids are doing. I put in an excerpt from one of my Jeeves and Wooster stories and then cringed as I hit the button. And it came back....

I write like
P. G. Wodehouse

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

HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF. I was seriously scared it was going to tell me that my J&W fic is in the style of Dan Brown or something and then I would have to slink off and DIE IN SHAME.

Now we'll see if I get up the nerve to put in bits of any of my other stories... :p
How do I feel?: relievedrelieved

OMG, I put in a few paragraphs of my research paper and got told I write like Dan Brown. I figure it's because it saw words such as "alchemy," "magic," and "diabolism." Still, though...

lol, that makes a lot of sense if those are the words you used!

Heee! Yeah, I'm sure it's because of that. I gotta wonder how their "analyzer" actually works. I don't think it's very scientific. :p

Wow! I'm fucking jealous. I had no idea PG wrote such grade A slash!

Yeah, if I'd got Dan Brown I would have to have joined you in the corner, then people might have stoned us. ;D

Hahaha, well, I put in the first few paragraphs of "Yes, Sir, Jeeves," so there was actually nothing slashy in there. I'll have to try putting some of my J&W porn in there and see what it does. It might asplode. :O

Oh, Dan Brown. Such intriguing ideas, such dismal execution.

Such intriguing ideas, such dismal execution. lolol, maybe on second thoughts, it's a miracle I didn't get Mr Brown!

I apparently write like Arthur Conan Doyle. Which makes me seem classier then I really am xDD

LOLOL, oh that's just brilliant. Best use of that meme yet XD

Ahahaha thanks. As SOON as I saw that meme, that's the first thing I thought of. OMG WHAT IF MY PASTICHE ISN'T IN THE STYLE OF THE AUTHOR I WAS ACTUALLY TRYING TO IMITATE. :p
Strictly Ornamentaldaasgrrl on July 15th, 2010 03:04 am (UTC)
That would have been strangely lolarious. JEEVES AND WOOSTER SLASH IN THE STYLE OF STEPHEN KING! AWESOME! :P
Sky: [j&w] omgskyblue_reverie on July 15th, 2010 03:08 am (UTC)
Ahaha if one was TRYING to do J/W slash in the style of King that would be truly awesome and lolarious. If it told me that my J/W fic was actually in the style of Stephen King, I think I may have cried. :p

Although its validity to me seems to be awfully suspect, given the weird, off-the-wall answers it's given people. So, basically... I reject its reality and substitute my own. ;)

Although its validity to me seems to be awfully suspect,

Oh, yes. I write Red Dwarf fic in the style of J D SALINGER, apparently. I mean, WTF? :P

Anyway, at least you clearly know what you're doing :D

Hey I got Dan Brown! But then again, I kind of pounded out three paragraphs of gibberish in less than two minutes, so well... that's sort of sad for Brown.
Sky: [j&w] jeeves distraughtskyblue_reverie on July 16th, 2010 05:21 pm (UTC)
Haha yes. Also, this entry wasn't necessarily meant as a slam against Brown, it's more just that my J&W stories are actually pastiche -- that is, they are meant to be written in the style of P.G. Wodehouse so if I got any author other than him I would be a very sad panda. :)
indusnmindusnm on July 16th, 2010 05:34 pm (UTC)
lol, it's okay if you slammed Brown too. I actually like Brown, he got me through the Peace Corps and I feel the same way about him that I do about Rowling- their writing can leave something to be desired, but I can appreciate a good storyteller that compels a sadly not very literary few generations to read... I was a teacher in a local high school in the US and Harry Potter was a bit of a godsend to us!

Of course, there's the whole inaccuracy issue, but if I can still watch Disney I can handle Brown!

Still, I'd LOVE Wodehouse. He's one of my faves.
