Which famous author do you write like?

Published by under Research and Resources

I provide advice about how to write novels, comic books and graphic novels. Most of my content applies to fiction-writing in general, but I also provide articles specifically about superhero stories.

This writing analyzer is fun.  It’s totally useless for anything but amusement, though.  It claimed that a passage actually written by Hemingway most resembled the work of P.G. Wodehouse, which is a bizarre choice for a passage about a man that killed a lion.  Wodehouse mainly wrote comedies about foppish dandies more likely to use a club for golf than for anything interesting.  (In the program’s defense, alcohol does play sort of prominently in both the Hemingway passage and Wodehouse’s work).
