I used one of my essays -- it says I write like "Cory Doctorow." Never heard of him before -- he's apparently a Canadian journalist and science-fiction writer.

I got David Foster Wallace based on a debate I did on intellectual property.
"Caitlyn Jenner is an incredibly brave and stunningly beautiful woman."

I copied a paragraph from an essay I wrote on heuristics last semester and it came up with someone named David Foster Wallace. I've never heard of him. I copied another paragraph and got him again.

Luckily for me, it seems only that debate matched him! If others do, I'll have to brush up my English for sure.

I'm not sure whether the fact that each piece of fiction I wrote has a different author I match is a good thing in that I'm not overly emulating a certain author, or a bad thing in that I'm not developing a consistent style.

Either way, I got some cool people--guy who wrote Fight Club, Stephen King, Agatha Christie, woot.

I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

I used one of my short stories and got Jane Austen.

I used round 2 of my hate speech debate and got Agatha Christie.

It knows I'm a woman!!

...

I then posted a short story I wrote a few years ago where I intentionally tried to write like a man, and I got L. Frank Baum.

Dan Brown and Edgar Allan Poe, apparently.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I probably spent a little more time on this than I should have. Nonetheless, I got a few pretty interesting results. What a confidence booster, haha.

H. P. Lovecraft (x5)
James Joyce (x5)
Mark Twain (x4)
Margaret Atwood (x3)
David Foster Wallace (x3)
Isaac Asimov (x2)
George Orwell (x2)
Margaret Mitchell (x2)
Gertrude Stein (x2)
Dan Brown (x2)
Edgar Allan Poe (x2)
Dan Brown (x2)
Arthur Clarke (x2)
Kurt Vonnegut (x2)
Cory Doctorow (x2)
Stephen King (x2)

Notable x1 mention: Anne Rice


Overall, I'm sort of impressed with this site, despite looking at it like it's pretty much just a confidence booster. It is something new to distract me! I guess I really am stuck with this job, after all... I can't complain. If you love your job, you really never work a day in your life -until you're negotiating a contract with a literary agent.

I copied and pasted "yoloswag" about 100 times.

Apparently, that's how Agatha Christie writes. I don't think this website is very reliable... lol

I copied and pasted the second fiction challenge I sent to DetectableNinja, and I got James Joyce.

For a bright Thursday afternoon in early September, the air was unusually cold. Chalk dust floated through beams of sunlight as a linear algebra lecture came to a close. I could see Garett sitting across the classroom, wanting furiously to ask our professor to explain; his back was erect, neck stiff and shoulders floating in anticipation. As he leaned forward in his chair his brown hair fell over his face and he brushed it away with a hand that was already raised in the air. The lecture was almost over, and it became clearer and clearer that the professor was not going to turn from the blackboard and face the class, as he was equally desperate to finish the equation so that he could include it on our first exam of the semester, the following Monday. The class dismissed before he could lower his hand, which fell with disheartening thrust upon his desk. I picked up my notes, placed them in my bag and walked outside the classroom where I stood outside the door.
"What was your question?" I asked, as Garrett stepped through the doorway.
"A fleeting memory, now." He replied. "Why?" He started to walk down the hall.
"I have my brother"s notes from two years ago. Professor Worthington still uses the same lessons he did back in 1972." I laughed, as I followed him. "I guess he figures no one ever passes notes down through the years."
"Or he doesn"t care." Garrett replied, as he held out his hand. "I"m Garrett Kelly, by the way."
"I know. I"m Matt Edmund." I put my arm over his shoulders as he looked over. "And Garrett Kelly, you will meet me in the library this evening. I"ll bring my brother"s notes. We"ll study them, and we"ll both get A"s next monday."
"You don"t waste any time, do you?" Garrett laughed, hesitantly.
"You"re also in my biology class, which I have slept through almost every day. A little quid pro quo never hurt anyone, right?" I asked as I returned my arms to my side.
"I am, but my notes aren"t all that great." Garrett confessed.
"So you do have notes?" I chuckled.
"Yeah." He looked over at me.
"Brilliant, then." I replied optimistically. "In front of the library at 8:00?"
"Sure." Garrett held out his hand again. "Thanks, man."
"Don"t mention it." I turned to depart. "I"ll see you tonight!" I opened the door of Barr Hall, our mathematics building, and took a deep breath of fall air. The leaves were just beginning to change, as the Massachusetts nights grew crisper and the days shorter.
It was my senior year at Wilton Academy. I"d never seen Garrett here before, and he looked younger than I was, but linear algebra was a mathematics class almost exclusively for not only seniors -but the best seniors. I returned to my dorm with the hope of taking a nap before departing for the library.

"Matt!" My roommate Aaron called as I opened my dorm room door. "You will never believe what John snuck in from home!"
"Is it a bottle of vodka?" I asked, bemusedly.
"How did you know?" Aaron was disappointed that I ostensibly already knew the secret.
"Lucky guess, I suppose." I replied. "I really had no idea."
"Oh." Aaron glanced down at the homework he left on his desk. "Well, he said we can have some later when he opens it."
"I"ve got to go to the library tonight to study for an exam, but I might when I get back if there is any left." I replied. "See if John brought any pot back with him. I know he had some last year."
"He almost got kicked out for it too." Aaron seemed nervous at the mention of drugs.
"I know. I was with him." I said with a devilish grin.
"You almost got kicked out too!" Aaron protested.
"Almost, yeah. Only, almost." I argued as I laid down on my bed. "Let me catch a nap before I have to go to dinner though."
"Alright." Aaron turned back around at his desk and resumed his homework.

I got Lovecraft again when I posted part of my debate with imabench into the analyzer. I'd be interested to see what sort of metrics this analyzer uses.

None whatsoever. Copying and pasting "yoloswag" if apparently how Agatha Christie writes.
