Prose Style Analysis


I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like. Analyze your writing!

What is alarming is that I ran two samples of my writing, one a political editorial, the other an appreciative essay on a rare angling book, and both got the same result. My guess is that test is responding to my vocabulary.

Hat tip to Chico Kidd.

I’ve always told you your prose is purple.

I, on the other hand, come in as Ursula LeGuin, which is a hell of a compliment. (Don’t always like her soapboxes but that woman can write).

Hmmm, on second trial… My Ursula LeGuin was a dialog-heavy extract. For a description-heavy one, I came out as Margaret Mitchell.

Guess I need to work on my description.


I ran four and got four different results: Mark Twain, Cory Doctorow, Dan Brown and Charles Dickens. I know it says prose, but the last entry was a poem fragment.

Interesting. Does this mean I could be a speech writer for our current WH resident’s teleprompter? That way he could assume whatever personae he wants.
