Apparently I was like James Joyce, which confused me slightly. I mean, I like Joyce, but I don't think I write in his choppy, impressionistic, stream-of consciousness style.
Hmm... I'm not too sure we should be so confident of the abilities of an analysis engine which thinks that sonnet was by Dickens.
you couldn't just enter your own text :) i tried twice got brown and joyce but you took it that step further
those 2 are great results
Text: O2 broadband terms and conditions -- Dan Brown
Text: My writing about computer games and sex -- H. P. Lovecraft :)))
I hope I don't actually have sex like an H.P. Lovecraft novel. That would be worrying.

that would be indeed :) but would make great discussion subject at our lunches:)
I don't think a discussion of HP Lovecraft and sex would be 100% ideal for lunch.
Apparently I write like Nabokov :-(
So I saw (on someone else's journal I think). I bet I could tell your writing from his if I had a few paragraphs to look at.
I'd like to think so - I mean he never wrote about Daniel O'Donnell salt and pepper sets and Steven Seagal and Lady Diane.
Lolita would have been much more fun if he did
I'm beginning to suspect it's just randomised and is proving to be the hit of the day for no other reason than blatant flattery... (telling endless yawnsome bloggers that they write like Tolstoy or James Joyce is a guaranteed way to up your hit rate)
Actually that's probably not far off... all gung-ho and jolly English.
(hmmm, I still suspect it's a bit random though)
And now best beloved, the story of how the smuggler of pirates cove got his long jail sentence.
Yes, I think if they included results like "brain damaged teenager", "lolcat", "person having fit on keyboard and trying to email for help" and "adolescent goth" then people would be a lot less happy to post the "I write like" meme.
Ooh, please will somebody write this version? It would be lots more fun (and you could post other people's text into it for evil kicks)
Her hee! That's more like it :-)
I keep getting Dan Brown. I feel soiled.
Maybe you really write like the O2 Broadband terms and conditions but Dan Brown is the nearest it could find?
'Don't you have any work to do?'
My thoughts exactly.... and it would sound so much better if I wasn't *reading* this at work... ho hum :-)
