« Express and Ellison | Main | Madame Bovary as a pie chart »

I certainly never expected this.

I write like
David Foster Wallace

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

This assessment was based on several paragraphs from Wheatyard. I tried a second excerpt, from the same chapter of the book, and got Wallace again. Then a third try, again from that chapter, gave me Arthur C. Clarke. The only Wallace I've ever read was one single essay, and I've never read Clarke, so it's doubtful that either writer was even a subconscious influence on me.

How can I be married to someone who has never read any Arthur C. Clarke???
