I Write Like...

I happened to run into this writing analyzer application called I Write Like, which tells you whose famous writer's style resembles yours. I had fun with for a few minutes analyzing various pieces from my stories and I got some interesting results:

- long story from 2002 - Raymond Chandler *cool!* :)
- long story from 2008 - Cory Doctorow *not that impressed*
- various stories from 2007, 2009, 2010 - Stephen King *WTF?! I don't even read Stephen King* :P
- recent unfinished story - Dan Brown *I guess there's no point in finishing that one* :P
- recently finished funny story - Lewis Carroll *hehe*
- current year already published Romanian (!) story - James Joyce *smug* LOL
- and the blog posts are channeling Isaac Asimov *wheee* :)

The thing is I tend to use a particular voice for each story, while you can still recognize my style in them... so... I don't know... but that Stephen King worries me. :P

To be superstitious or not

I just sent an offer to a possible client and only then realised today it's Tuesday the 13th. To those who believe in superstitious it can't get worse than that. Oh well... if it doesn't work out at least I'll have August free.

Update: I didn't get a straight out no answer... so things are looking promising so far.
