Here's a website called I Write Like. It compares your writing style and word choice to famous authors. Now, I know I don't write like Vladimir Nabokov and James Joyce, but the idea is encouraging even if it's inaccurate. The results vary more widely if you enter smaller chunks of text, so I'd recommend using larger sections of writing. I thought we could post results for fun.
I entered all of my short stories there and got the following: Ernest Hemingway (x2), Jonathan Swift, JRR Tolkien, Dan Brown, Ursula K. Le Guin, Stephenie Meyer, Neil Gaiman, and Mario Puzo. I'd be happy if I was half as good as some of these folks, but they very different from each other. I'm curious who I'd get if I wrote a novel.
For my long poems, I got these people more than once: David Foster Wallace, Arthur C. Clarke, Chuck Palahniuk, Margaret Atwood, and HP Lovecraft.
I haven't read half of these authors, but I'm definitely adding them to my reading list.
What results do you get?
