I submitted a few paragraphs from my post on the fight-or-flight response (from 5/26/2015), and allegedly I write like David Foster Wallace, from Wikipedia:

David Foster Wallace (February 21, 1962 – September 12, 2008) was an American author of novels, short stories and essays, as well as a professor of English and creative writing. Wallace is widely known for his 1996 novel Infinite Jest, which was cited by Time magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005… Los Angeles Times book editor David Ulin called Wallace “one of the most influential and innovative writers of the last 20 years.”

But when I analyzed my poem entitled “Invisible,” this website says I write like J. K. Rowling. Perhaps I have a split personality. 🙂

    • Wikipedia: Brown’s novels that feature the lead character Robert Langdon also include historical themes and Christianity as motifs, and as a result, have generated controversy. Brown states on his website that his books are not anti-Christian, though he is on a ‘constant spiritual journey’ himself, and says that his book The Da Vinci Code is simply “an entertaining story that promotes spiritual discussion and debate” and suggests that the book may be used “as a positive catalyst for introspection and exploration of our faith.”

    • Don’t feel left out, I had never heard of him before either. Thanks so much for the link, which I’ll now take the time to read. 🙂

      I’ve also never heard of Ursula Le Guin, but her work looks fascinating. A great compliment, indeed!

  1. so i took two different parts of one of mine, in one scene my writing was the style of Gertrude Stein due to the use of dialog.
    Later though i was J.K Rowling during an action scene.
    So i am very happy with that result! 😀

  2. Oh wow I got James Joyce!
    “James Joyce was an Irish, modernist writer who wrote in a ground-breaking style that was known both for its complexity and explicit content.” I posted one of my little poems ^-^

  3. I got the horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. I am not totally flabbergasted by that. After all, I use arcane words like “gibbering” and “flabbergasted” constantly. But I try to be a humor writer, not horror. Maybe my jokes are terrifyingly funny. Or maybe I have missed my true calling.

  4. Okay, so this was like, the most awesome thing ever! I literally typed in hundreds of different things, and got a bunch of different writers. A few cropped up as the same, and this was so much fun! I’d never heard of this, but it’s brilliant! Thank you for sharing!
