Over on Maryb's blog she has a link to a fascinating little writing analyser. I fed in a blog post (How to tell if someone's been circumcised) and it concluded that I write like James Joyce. Before that I tried an extract from my latest novel, a work in progress, and it came up with Cory Doctorow (I've never heard of him/her) and from my childhood memories blog post it compared me with Kurt Vonnegut.
I can live with Joyce or Vonnegut.
It's fun but rather addictive. Apparently it was devised by a Russian software programmer and it's based on key words rather than style or structure. There are currently only 50 authors in its database but more development is promised.
Give it a try and tell me which famous writer you are! Oh, and pay Mary's blog a visit. It's brilliantly written and always entertaining.
