I Write Like William Gibson

There's a website called I Write Like which will analyze a writing sample and tell you which famous author your writing most resembles. Obviously, I had to try it, and lo and behold:

I write like
William Gibson

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

This might just be the worst day of William Gibson's life.

I tried that last week too. Turns out I write like Raymond Chandler, after having it analyze a piece of flash fiction I'd submitted to Shock Totem. I'm not sure how accurate that site is, though. :)

By the by, you've got an award button waiting for you here.

I was told I write like Stephen King. I then tried different chunks of writing, and every time got a different author. I must be schizo.

I apparently write like David Foster Wallace and James Joyce. I tried five different reviews from my site and got only those two results.

I think they're trying to tell me my sentences are too long. :)
