One of my ..ahem… many Professor acquaintances pointed me to “I write like“, a website that uses cutting edge (not to mention robust) algorithms to
“analyse your word choice and writing style and compare them with those of famous writers.“
So Virginia writes like Chuck Palahniuk (whoever he is when he’s at home….), Bat writes like Kurt Vonnegut, Ernest Hemingway writes like Ernest Hemingway (always do a validation, I say…), Kate writes like Bram Stoker, Helen writes like Cory Doctorow (praise indeed…) and Gerald England writes like Arthur Conan Doyle.
Depending on what sort of mood I’m in, I appear to be a reincarnation of either James Joyce or Arthur C. Clarke.
Or a hybrid.
And Professor Fish and Chips could be – based on her dissertation – mistaken on a dark night for Dan Brown.
I’m not sure if that’s good or bad…
