I write like Mario Puzo (plus stuff)

Did you guys check out the poem I wrote that is featured in Haunted Waters Press?  I blogged about it yesterday-  I hope you check it out!

I just discovered something kind of interesting/exciting..  I apparently write like Mario Puzo.. You know, the man behind The Godfather.  I know.  I don't think it gets anymore bad-ass.  AMIRITE?



I write like
Mario Puzo
I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!


All my writer friends/readers (is there a difference?!) should analyze your writing and let me know what you guys get!  I love this kind of stuff.

Camp NaNo has been quite the challenge!  We were out of town this weekend so I did absolutely *no writing* and then on Sunday evening- a serious nesting bug bit me in the bum.  Since then, I have been doing nothing but two things: cleaning/reorganizing and hitting up the pool.  (It's a tough life I lead.)  I am hoping to end around the 30,000 word count mark.  I am trying to be realistic, and 50,000 probably won't happen!  But, 30,000 is something I can work with and be happy about.

My to-do list is pretty hefty and I have some french homework to turn in.  But, I plan on making time for writing.  Right now, Eva and I are headed to the coffee shop and play place.  I'm going to indulge in a delicious iced dirty chai and either read some David Sedaris or do a bit of writing.



Happy Hump Day!  (I've always hated that phrase.)

  1. Very cool - to be able to analyze your writing style. Hmmm...

    1. I thought it was fun. Probably not accurate whatsoever. But still neat!

  2. I've seen this before. My first (longest) WIP returned Stephen King. My second WIP returned JK Rowling. My two short stories that will be in the anthology later this year were Kurt Vonnegut and David Foster Wallace.

    So...what the hell does that say about me?!

    1. It means you are a fucking bad ass. Seriously, that's sweet.

      I used an excerpt from the memoir-ish thing I'm working on. You are making me want to try other things and see what I get too! HELLO TIME-WASTER. JUST WHAT I NEED! yikes!

  3. I love that my writing style is apparently like Raymond Chandler, one of my favorites. I love a good mystery, after all.

    1. How perfect! I can totally see it. Dude, how is Camp NaNo coming for you!?

  4. I tried it out on my novel and the result was David Foster Wallace. Even got me a little badge thingy I tacked up on my page. I doubt it works too but it certainly is fun. And Puzo is seriously badass, and a little intimidating!

    1. Neato! I just checked it out. :) Weird thing- today when I was at the bookstore, I browsed through his 'Infinite Jest'- coincidence?!

  5. I am not sure how I feel about my results. Apparently, I write like Anne Rice.

    What is Hump Day? Is that when we all practice bad posture, and hope to look like Quasimodo?

    1. I think that's cool. YOu both really know how to tell a story! And yes, Nellie, that is EXACTLY what hump day is. Are you ready for the next one?
