sideview, obamame_sideview

Um, hmm, well then...

Had to try that "Who do you write like?" meme that's going on. Now, I put in a short story and a blog entry and both told me:


I write like
Vladimir Nabokov

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




Then I pasted in another short story, the longer of two going into the Parageneis anthology, and it says:


I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

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




The first two writing samples had longer sentences, lots of complete thoughts. The second story is, in part, written from the POV of an autistic teenager. His bits are intentionally choppy, with lots of repetition and incomplete sentences. So perhaps that accounts for the difference?
