Apparently I am Literary AND Influential - :P

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I have a dear blog friend, Steven at Life in the Fish Bowl, and he tried this so I HAD to follow.

I put up an old Boo Boo Saturday post from this year and got the result:

I write like
James Joyce
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Now - I had HEARD of James Joyce so I was pretty stoked.  Then I checked out his Wikipedia entry and saw THIS:

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish writer and poet, widely considered to be one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Along with Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, and others, Joyce was a key figure in the development of the modernist novel. He is best known for his landmark novel Ulysses (1922). Other major works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939).

You too can see how Literary and Influential you are too at "I Write Like"

Have you read his books? They are so intimidating. I had to read one of them for a class.

When I lived in Norway I checked out a bunch of the classics in English in the library to have English in my head at least part of the time...I checked out A Portrait of the Artist as a Youn Man. I liked it, but yes I agree.

I love messing around with this! I've been Stephen King, James Joyce, David Foster Wallace, Stephenie Meyers and Chuck Palhuik or something like that. I have to go look him up - didn't know him, but I've hear of his book Diary.

Congrats on being so influential!
