I Write Like: Stephen King, apparently

Well I thought I'd try one of these "I write like" sites, just for fun. Instead of copying and pasting text from my novel, or poems, or any other writing I have been tinkering with lately, I decided to try a fun experiment.

I thought I'd just write utter nonsense for a bit and see what came up.

This is what I wrote:

Ferret jackaranda misanthrope wellspring pineapple. Keratin Harold unicycle turnip backgammon. Persimmon pterodactyl xylophone is the one true goat.

Which makes absolutely no sense, unless you are in a persimmon pterodactyl xylophone goat cult.

The results surprised me:

Which could well be true. I am heavily influenced by Stephen King's books. I read "IT" when I was around fourteen and never quite recovered.

However, these guys might want to take another look at their algorithm.


  1. I like this, I just did it. Apparently I write like Stephanie Meyer - encouraging given its the age rage and genre I want to appeal to, but disappointing given she's not THE best writer in the world ever! lol

    1. Hehe! Well, considering I wrote gibberish and got Stephen King, I wouldn't worry too much about the Stephanie Meyer thing. I'm guessing they select authors randomly!
