A little light showing off

I have discovered a web app which analyses one's prose style and then matches it to a noted writer.

Therefore, I am delighted to declare that when I tried out my hospital post on it, the app was perspicacious enough to recognise that I write like Charles Dickens.

Have a go here, and feel free to post any amusing results in the comments.

George Orwell!!!!!! Yeah, right.

I wonder if their database has any unflattering comparisons..?

David Foster Wallace. Nor me, I'm sorry to say!

Nice idea, though - thanks for the link.  

Anonymous opsimath said... 12:39 pm

It is I, yet again.

I have discovered who David Foster Wallace was and am quite flattered!

A rather longer piece of my writing likened me to Anne Rice - now that, I'm not so sure of!

BE - I guess we just have to keep on trying, don't we?

O - Yup, he doesn't sound too bad a writer, does he? I've never read any Rice, but having seen 'Interview' do not think she can write convincing male characters.

I too write like Charles Dickens, apparently.

Well, I live in Medway, which is currently preparing to bid for City Status, and one part of Medway (Rochester) lost its City Status a dozen years ago, so perhaps I could one day write a Tale of Two Cities...

Edmund Wells? Dikkens with 2-K's, the well known Dutch author?

H P Lovecraft here

Blogger Nick Drew said... 9:32 pm


James Joyce this time

I would be rather pleased with JJ...

"I write like Charles Dickens"

That's just because you use words like perspicacious.. :-)

I HATE dickens.  

Anonymous Andrew Zalotocky said... 9:23 pm

I got H P Lovecraft as well. Still, it explains why I've never had much luck with the romantic epistles to the ladies. Shall I compare thee to a nameless horror that blasts men's souls...
