I write like Arthur Clarke? Proof: http://iwl.me/s/a19b4b4
This result comes from an analysis of the short story I submitted to the Laurel Highland Publishing contest, “Under a Hunter’s Moon”. I’ve always had a lot of respect for Arthur C. Clarke’s work, and used to speed through his books.
What surprised me most was that the results indicated that I write like a speculative science fiction author, and not a fantasy author. The story is set in a Seattle museum, and the Washington wilderness, so I know it’s not the story itself that influenced the results. The main character is a lupine, as my wife and I have decided to call the werewolves in our shared setting.
That means the software must analyze elements of writing style, and word usages. If nothing else, it is nice to know that it considers my writing to be similar to one of the great writers of our time.
