According to I Write Like, apparently I write like Isaac Asimov, Stephen King, James Joyce, Agatha Christie, H.P. Lovecraft, Kurt Vonnegut, and Ian Fleming. There could be more, for all I know. Apparently I’m not that consistent.
The only consistent elements of this on a post-to-post basis are the following:
1.) Three Executives posts are all Agatha Christie. Which is eerie, because I’m pretty sure Agatha Christie never had a character who tried to eat gravel.
2.) Conversations with Flapjacks are always James Joyce. Which is eerier and a little freaky, to be honest.
3.) Stuff I write for Torontoist in “journalism mode” is Vonnegut. Which is the only element of the whole experiment I find flattering.
