    For a bit of fun you can discover who you write like https://iwl.me/
    So far I’ve been linked with Jane Austen and Lewis Carroll. Today, for a piece mentioning air-raid sirens, I’m the new Chuck Palahniuk 😉

    Now there’s interesting, as we say in Wales. Based on two short extracts from the last novel I wrote, I write either like James Joyce or (wait for it) Dan Brown. Not much difference…

    My theory, Richard, is that the program looks at content rather than style. I leave you to decide if that idea fits with your novel! Possibly the program throws POV into the mix.

    I suppose Joyce and Brown both spent some time in Paris…

    Ha ha! I write like Stephen King! I think Libby is right though and the program looks at content mostly as this was a particularly horror full section!

    I’ll try with a more lyrical section… watch this space.

    Yes, in my first passage my MC was being smitten at his first sight of a young lady, and in the second someone was getting blasted with a shotgun. Hmm, content…

    I write like Margaret Atwood apparently 😄
