What is Your Writing Style Like?

So I just did this super funny quiz to see which famous writer has the same writing style as I do. I entered the text of my blog post on women as furniture and here is the result:

I write like
Charles Dickens
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I can't say I'm not flattered. It makes sense, too, because Dickens was a very feminist writer.

Now I have to convince my editor that they can't afford not to publish the next Dickens.

Submitting my two most recent blog posts yielded the result that I write like Arthur Conan Doyle. I am a little surprised, but pleased.

For the blog, I got James Joyce. I, too, am pleased!

A friend's friend writes like james joyce, Charles dickens, Dan Brown, Vladimir Nabukov, and Chuck Palahniuk. My BFF writes like Dan Brown, Charles Dickens, lovecrafts, and James Joyce.

Oh, and I write like Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe and Vladimir Nabokov.

The site tells me I write like H.P. Lovecraft. I guess it's the grandiloquent deployment of adjectives and terse phrasing.

I feel unalloyed hatred for this analyzer. They called me Dan Brown!

I'm so sorry, cringe-all! But I'm sure that in the mind of whoever made the test this was meant as a compliment.

I tried it with some of my blog posts and apparently I write like David Foster Wallace and Vladmir Nabukov, neither of whom I've read. I have to admit, I was kind of hoping for James Joyce.
