Bram Stoker for Pyramid?!

As happy as I would love to be, I can't help but wonder how acurate this site is.

Aside from him, my Pyramid story, depending on the chapter, got Dan Brown and Stephen King.

FFN's front page has 65.7% readability and the grade level 8.

It is more complex than some of the previous posters' stories.

The site's November 30th AOL whine/announcement was written by Cory Doctorow.

Who's that is irrelevant. Just know he's old.

I got Ray Bradbury on my chapter story. :D And then I got Chuck Palahniuk twice, Ruyard Kipling on my crossover (it has animals, so I guess...), and George Orwell. Hopefully writing like Chuck Palahniuk is a compliment. Apparently he's an American novelist with a minimalist style.

I analyzed my Harry Potter one-shot and was told I write like J. K. Rowling.

I can't tell if I should be insanely proud or be mad because it's fixed to just take the names of the characters and match them to an author.

The Warriors fic of mine that I tested got Rudyard Kipling, who wrote The Jungle Book...

Put in my prologue for my story: Elementalist

It told me I write like I write like J.R.R. Tokien.

I heard he was a good writer, and I agree, but I found his work a little.... long winded

hopefully mines not like that

My regular work got pretty typical results, but I managed to write up a piece that got this:

The Flesch-Kincaid reading ease score is -80.3 (0 to 100, higher is best)

The Flesch-Kincaid grade level is 64.7th grade

The Gunning Fog index is 69.2 (average is 12, lower is best)

The Coleman-Liau index is 9.9

The SMOG index is 25.6

The automated readability index is 80.1

It's awful in every way imaginable, but here it is:

Completely unmovable, the man, a tyrant among tyrants, had scarcely changed his mind on an issue since the day of his birth, a day remembered by none but written of in texts as the most glorious rotation of Earth to ever occur - only, of course, due to has propensity to kill those who slighted him in any way - and he was unlikely to begin changing now, to start altering his habits at such a late date, and certainly not for such a woman, a pitiful wraith such as this; indeed, she was a sight not fit to be beheld by the lowest, most wretched beast alive, and certainly not the high king of Avalon - and yet he found, after great internal searching, that somewhere, deep in his heart of hearts, he harbored feelings of affection for her, despite the obvious disparity in their stations - indeed, he found that an alteration in his stoic immovability would be, for the first time he could remember, possible.

Thanks for this tool. It's fun to see how badly I can do. XD

Tried the "write like" and got Dan Brown, at least with one story. I'm going to try the rest later.

This is the readability score from my longest oneshot...this thing is pretty cool.

Interesting stuff with the gender scale. (http://www.hackerfactor.com/GenderGuesser.php)

I got MALE on my profile for informal and weak FEMALE (European) for formal. Now, I used chapter one of Blazing Mental for comparison and got opposite results. One thing for sure, when it does say MALE, the difference is over 70%.

Recognition!

Plugged in Humanity's True Face and got about 66% male on both counts.

I've got to try this with something non-fanfiction...

Oh, through the course of my fanfiction writing career, I've progressed from weak male, to weak female, before graduating to full on female in both formal and informal.

Whoo, 4th grade reading level...

Genre: Informal Female = 1173 Male = 1151 Difference = -22; 49.52% Verdict: Weak FEMALE

Weak emphasis could indicate European.

Genre: Formal Female = 833 Male = 1065 Difference = 232; 56.11% Verdict: Weak MALE

Weak emphasis could indicate European.

...Whatever that means.

Fun with Gender Guesser: inputting "My dick is the size of a fucking MACK TRUCK" results in a result of 100% male on both sides. Inputting "Bitch don't be tryin' to disrespect me" results in an unknown result for informal and a 91.31% female result for formal.

And for today's final moment of hilarity, the lyrics to Justin Bieber's song "Baby" return results of 71.11% female for informal and 64.28% female for formal.

A new, pointless drabble-ish thing of mine:

I write like Vladimir Nabokov.

Genre: Informal, Female = 1316, Male = 1635, Difference = 319; 55.4%, Verdict: Weak MALE - Weak emphasis could indicate European.

Genre: Formal, Female = 917, Male = 994, Difference = 77; 52.01%, Verdict: Weak MALE - Weak emphasis could indicate European.

The very first chapter of mine on FFN:

I used to write like William Gibson.

Genre: Informal, Female = 4908, Male = 5417, Difference = 509; 52.46%, Verdict: Weak MALE - Weak emphasis could indicate European.

Genre: Formal, Female = 3273, Male = 4332, Difference = 1059; 56.96%, Verdict: Weak MALE - Weak emphasis could indicate European.

I am secretly a man. Barely, but still a man. :/
