I Write Like Tolkien
The site determined that I write like Tolkien when I entered text from my book. Then I entered text from two blog entries. In one I wrote like Arthur C. Clarke and in the other I wrote like Dan Brown. The site probably keys on words rather than style. When writing fiction I strive for tight smooth narrative and snappy dialog, which is not Tolkien-ish, though it is heroic fantasy fiction with horses and swords. I try to be like David Gemmell. Because I had made-up names and horses in the fiction text it slotted me in Tolkien camp. In the creative prose piece, it labeled me Clarke and in the commentary on Picasso in labeled me Dan Brown.
