Okay: first up I put in the review I wrote for Maureen Carter's "Death Line".
Turns out I write like Edgar Allan Poe.
Then I put in my review for the recent Doctor Who season finale.
Turns out I write like David Foster Wallace.
Then I tried my review for 'The Silence'.
Seems I'm H.P. Lovecraft.
I tried my piece on reading and not reading.
I'm actually Cory Doctorow.
If I put in the Big Session 2010 review...
I'm back to being H.P. Lovecraft again.
So here's the thing:
How many famous authors is it actually drawing on to be able to 'define' writing styles? There is a nice critique at Tea Berry-Blue which neatly quizzes the 'analyzer' with extracts from a variety of authors - including a range of female writers.
Who'd have thought? Turns out they mostly write like white male authors.
An interesting exercise, but perhaps not one to take too seriously.
