Silly Memage

It's just too tempting to let a 'bot analyze a bit of your writing to see who you write like. I tried a number of different bits, and got a number of different results.

Stephen King

And a few others too! It took a while before I got a few duplicates. And I didn't try poetry or songs. There's only so much time in a day, and there's other things I should be doing.

But it leaves me with a new curiosity: Do I really have that many different writing styles?

Now I'm really curious as to what things in a writing sample triggers the results.

Over here, in the comments a friend of a friend poked at it, and thinks the analyzer runs pretty strictly on word choices.

And I have a huge vocabulary. That could account for the myriad results.

Word choice is a pretty limited way to analyze writing. There's so many other elements of writing style.

Well, you can console yourself with the fact that King, Brown and Rowling all made vast piles of cash from their respective works.

I could use vast piles of cash!!! Or even small ones.

guppiecat did a little experiment with it, feeding some public domain works of famous authors to it. The results are here. Hint: it got them all laughably wrong.
