I hope this is the right place!

So who is it for you?

I tried with various posts, got Anne Rice several times, Stephen King and Cory Doctorow twice, and Arthur Clarke and Agatha Christie once  ???

I fed in various writers. Michael Connelly writes like Stephen King. Stephen King writes like Agatha Christie. Agatha Christie writes like HG Wells. HG Wells writes like Daniel Defoe. Daniel Defoe writes like James Fenimore Cooper...

After putting in a good 25 or so different posts I have made, I have found that Steven King is the main name that pops up.  I have also seen Cory Doctorow, Leo Tolstoy, and Anne Rice.  At first I believed I received Steven King because I have been reading his books lately.  Now, I'm not too sure if that actually is the case.

I went ahead and test 20 different posts and got Anne Rice 10 times, Agatha Christie twice, Cory Doctorow twice, Arthur Clarke twice, Stephen King 3 times, and finally Dan Brown once.

So I think based off of this I can assume I write similarly to Anne Rice.

I like the premise of this website; it is a very fun, intriguing analytical tool.

I input several excerpts of my writing – new and old* – and received the following results:

Dan Brown (x 5)
Arthur Clarke (x 3)
Anne Rice
J.K. Rowling

* – In order of ascending (new) to descending (old).

The oldest excerpts were written ten years ago (2008), while the newest ones were written last year (2018). Proof that a writer's style can change over time!

So um, being the dork I am, I decided to try this with five different characters because I try to tweak the narrative voice to suit each one, and I was curious if that would affect the system's results at all. Arthur Clarke was the only match for all five, although Anne Rice followed close behind and appeared the most overall. Two of my characters are/were apparently all over the place, because one resulted in five authors and the other gave me six. ::) Oops.

Anne Rice x6
Arthur Clarke x5
Stephen King x4
Cory Doctorow x2
Dan Brown x2
Agatha Christie x2

The tool gave me Agatha Christie. Never heard that one about my writing before.

I don't really know who I write like, it's really hard for me to judge.

What I usually get told is.

Lovecraft
Stephen King
Harlan Ellison
George RR Martin
RA Salvatore
Timothy Zahn
Claudia Gray
Mary Shelley
Tolkien
Kentaro Miura
Hirohiko Araki

But I don't know if any of them are really accurate. But some do make sense since their works have been a big influence on me(Except Martin and Stephen King). I don't think I've even read Agatha Christie though.

I need to try this. Oh well, I do have them but probably in French… I'll check if I have one or two in English though.

My posts for the site are all over the place, but having submitted several off-site short stories that I have written, I keep getting "Agatha Christie".

For fun I put in some stuff that I've written in collaboration with others, and it also comes out as "Agatha Christie". Maybe I seek out partners who write like me? I don't know. Or maybe the fact that about half of it was me is enough to tip the scales?

On the other hand, I've been told by creative writing teachers that my style is similar to Martin Amis and Jack London,  though this may have to do with the fact that a number of the stories I wrote for those classes dealt with a post-apocalyptic snow-covered world where freezing to death was more likely than anything else. (Teachers love post-apocalyptic worlds. At least my teachers did.)

If you do try it out, let us know what you find! I'd be interested. :D

Several posts of the same story gave me Arthur C. Clarke. Good for me for being consistent, I guess :-)

Across the board, for my other stories, Anne Rice is the most common with the occasional Clarke, Hemingway or Mario Puzo thrown in.

Excerpts from my offsite short story got me Stephanie Meyer, Arthur Clarke, JK Rowling, and...Dan Brown again.

Alright, time to go do some research and write a bizarrely inaccurate alt-modern conspiracy thriller...

Agatha Cristie for my current novel project, a horror short story and a play, Stephen King for a different novel chapter, and Anne Rice for a journal-style short story. This feels about right based on genre and such, I'm satisfied.
