Anne Rice with one post, Stephen King with another. Huh. That's hilarious.

I got Agatha Christie twice and Stephen King three times. Considering King is one of my favorite writers I’ll take it.

Completely unrelated to the test above, which I haven't yet taken, I've been told I write like Stephen King. Which was.... one of the highest compliments I've ever received about my writing. That was years ago, when I wrote fanfiction, though.

I got Stephen King the first time. Nice. Then Dan Brown, Ian Fleming, and Agatha Christie.

Gonna do a couple:

1st sample - An old essay of mine: Arthur C Clarke - I've never actually ready anything by him.

2nd sampe - A post in which my character grappled with a moment of severe introspection: Leo Tolstoy - I've read a few of his short stories, but I wouldn't call him a major influence.

3rd - The intro to a fantasy RP: Vladimir Nabokov - Never read Lolita.

So, apparently I have a strongly Russian writing style? That's kinda depressing.

Well, Russian literature is great, I would take pride in writing like Lev Tolstoy. Instead, all I get is authors I have never read (Anne Rice, Arthur Clarke, and Cory Doctorow – I mean, seriously?).

Oh, I have nothing against the quality of Tolstoy's writing. I just find a lot of Russian literature depressing in general. I'll definitely take Tolstoy over Anne Rice!

I decided to play and analyzed my questionnaire story, and I got Stephen King, hahaha! I'm not surprised though because he is one of my favorite authors and I'm certain his writing style has influenced mine. Although I really am a little jealous of some of the other authors listed here! Agatha Christie, Anne Rice, Ian Fleming, and so many more! Hopefully I can expand my writing style a little.  :-)

Also, on the subject of Russian writers, yes they can be very depressing but their stories are also deep. I think my absolute favorite currently is We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, It was written in 1920 and is the predecessor and eerily similar to 1984 by George Orwell (written in 1949). If you're a fan of 1984 then I highly recommend We. It's a short read and worth every moment.

It would appear that I write like James Joyce, that's rather nice I think.

Anne Rice & Agatha Christie. I only seem to get Agatha for posts with sex and everything else becomes Anne Rice.

"We" is an excellent book, indeed!

I think I write in a similar way to Nicholas Bella and maybe Anne Rice. Like if they had a baby author.

It gave me Agatha Christie twice - and I write absolutely nothing like Agatha Christi - but when I post just the first couple of paragraphs it gives me Arthur Conan Doyle - who I also write nothing like.

Stephen King and Cory Doctorow.

I get the feeling that my beloved R.A. Salvatore isn't in this list of possible outcomes at all.  ::)

Wanna know who I write like? Dallas. That's who I write like...  ^-^
