Whom do you write like?

This is an increasingly popular site which analyses your (or anyone’s) writing style and word choice and compares them with those of famous writers.
I recommend analysing as varied a selection of writers as you can imagine.

Apparently I write my thesis like Arthur C. Clarke and reviews like David Foster Wallace.

My blog is written like Arthur Clarke. More worryingly, my upgrade paper is written in Lovecraftian style… :huh:

I think this analyser is a bit of a one-trick pony: it told me that my reviews were in the style of Lovecraft, and a sample paragraph I wrote off the cuff was like David Foster Wallace.

There are about 30 writers in its database - hence my recommendation above.

Apparently, it’s just a random number generator :stuck_out_tongue:
(And an advert for a vanity publisher :frowning: )

I tried a couple of reviews and got the same answer for both.
