Writer's hubris

I have a tendency to start three or four (or seven) stories at once and never get around to editing them, so right now I'm working on editing three of my best, plus the novelish thing I've been kicking around since last October. This is what I Write Like tells me:

Story One: Margaret Atwood
Story Two: Margaret Atwood + Stephen King
Story Three: Chuck Palahniuk

Novel: Chuck Palahnuik + David Foster Wallace + Cory Doctorow

And for a lark, my recent NaNo Novel, which is a complete joke: Chuck Palahniuk + James Joyce + JD Salinger + Stephen King (A word salad-y, teen-angsty, gross-out horror story! That's actually pretty apt.)
