    I don't know if this applies to only fiction or not. I mostly write non-fiction, descriptions of people, interactions, and events, or some poetry about something I find striking. I do like to touch upon metaphors and symbolism or some of the more philosophical or psychological stuff through that.

    I don't do as much creative writing as I used to though.

    Franz Kafka
    Your Literary Style Is 50% Realistic, 83% Philosophical, and 100% Psychological!

    Franz Kafka's literary style is so distinct that an adjective has been coined from his name to describe similar styles. That adjective is "kafkaesque". Your own writing, obviously, is kafkaesque. Kafka wrote very strange, horrifying stories. His most famous novella involves the transformation of a man into a giant insect. His works are not only fantastic and symbolic, but they are often very philsophical and thought provoking. Many of his stories are allegorical or metaphorical, focusing on the nature of spirituality and the absurdity of life. Not only that, but his work is often intensely cerebral, delving deep into the minds of his characters and examining their psychology and the motivations for their actions. Your writing follows Kafka's example by being highly philosophical, psychological, and surrealistic.

    Some stories you may enjoy: "The Metamorphasis", The Castle, The Trial, and "A Hunger Artist".

    I straddle the line on realism making me torn between Kafka and Camus.

    Albert Camus

    Your Literary Style Is 83% Realistic, 100% Philosophical, and 100% Psychological!
    Your literary style most resembles Albert Camus'. Camus was a French writer who was heavily influenced by existential philosophy. All of his work is very philosophical and concerned with existential issues such as the meaning of life and the possibility of morals without God. Camus was also a very cerebral writer, examining the thoughts and feelings of his characters in order to bring out his existential philosophy. His characters frequently ponder their situations and the absurdity of their lives, making them very vivid psychological portraits. Unlike most philosophical writers, of course, Camus' style is also very realistic and tends to avoid allegories or symbolism in favor of a true representation of existence through a study of a character's psyche. Your literary style is similar to his because your stories are realistic, psychological studies which emphasize intellectual issues in philosophy.

    Some stories you may enjoy: The Stranger, The Plague, and The Fall.
