Just for giggles, here's the last one I'm posting tonight, although tomorrow I'll probably try running some of my poetry through. First, let me post the text I entered:

"Once upon a time there was a little bunny rabbit who ran out in the road and got squashed. The End.

Once upon a time there lived a tiny flea, and when time fell back because of Daylight Savings time the flea fell into the void. The End."


Now, the result:


I write like
Margaret Atwood

I told me I write like Dan Brown. Now is THAT fair?

David--Oh my! Keep going. It seems more than willing to hand out other identities. :::grinning:::

I entered one of the stories that I wrote for Creative Writing last year and got the name of a fantasy writer I've never heard of. Let me run it again...Cory Doctorow.

I also ran a post I made on my blog about global warming and such, and got H.P. Lovecraft :) . A very interesting little application.

I tried this with extracts from my blog entries about ten times. Each time it gave me a different answer. After it accused me of writing like Dan Brown, I took offence and gave up.

Otherwise I might have tested it by putting in quotes from James Joyce etc to see if it correctly identified them, but to be honest, I think I can find more interesting diversions and displacement activities. Indeed, my whole life may be a displacement activity. I feel a little proud of it, indeed.

Wandered into your blog from Inscapes and immediately tried this.

My result: J.R.R Tolkien. Don't think I'll try it again, I'm walking away with that....a girl can dream, right?

Thanks for sharing. Definitely the most inspiring procrastination activity of the day!
