I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Huh, really?

I've never actually read any of Joyce's works. (One attempt to wade through Ulysses put me off.)

The above result was pretty consistent -- I fed it different chapters from all three AQ novels, and even chapter one of AQ4, and got James Joyce every time.

I am skeptical about the analytical algorithm used (which is not described). I suspect that it's based on simple n-grams, rather than any actual parsing of sentence structures. When I input chapters from Hogwarts Houses Divided, I was told I write like J.K. Rowling, and when I input something more recent and non-fanfic related, I got Douglas Adams.
