I write like H.P Lovecraft apparently.
How fun! Have you read any of Cory Doctorow's books?Apparently, I write like J.R.R. Tolkien. I'm curious to know this work.
Ryan: I've not been able to read his stuff yet, but he sounds awesome LMC: I haven't actually... but I found an e-book of his after I took the quiz. You got J.R.R Tolkien? Wow...
I got George Orwell, which made me feel terribly smug. I love Orwell...
Yup... I loved Animal Farm.
Would you believe, I only read that recently! I saw the animated version on TV when I was quite young, and it scared and confused me, rightfully so. My favourite Orwell writings are his collected short stories and essays. Love the man, love the writing.
I don't think this test is very scientific. I've tried it before and discovered I wrote like various authors whose style is completely different from my own. Still, as long as I don't write like Enid Blyton or Barbara Cartland....
I write like Cory Doctorow too though for the life of me I don't know who the heck that is ... LOL!
Hoozle: Hehehe... me too. I think I read the book late last year only! nick: Probably not... I did a small experiment with my older writing. Something I wrote in 2008 was similar to H.P Lovecraft and something from 2006 was similar to Chuck Palahniuk. I had a good laugh. Nick Philips: Actually, neither did I. Google him, he's actually got some free online versions of his books.
I did this a couple of months back and got Nabakov which I was extremely smug about. This time I got Dan Brown - how horrifying!!!!
I'd be horrified too!
Apparently i write like James Joyce....hmmm....i tried reading his Portrait blah blah blah book but couldn't get past the first few pages. Perhaps i should have another go at it.
Still, you got someone old and dead... mine's too young!
