I stumbled on an interesting site, especially for writers. You input writing samples, and it analyzes your style and tells you who you write like.
I put in the prologue from my unpublished novel, Above Haldis Notch, which is a paranormal thriller/magical realism novel. It told me I write like James Joyce.
Then I tried various other sections from Above Haldis Notch -- single chapters, multiple chapters, and multiple chapters that included the prologue. Using early chapters, I always got the same response:
I did several runs using the last chapters and just as consistently got matched with Margaret Atwood.
For another unpublished novel, a literary horror/paranormal, psychological thriller I call Daeva, I tried various chapters and combinations of early chapters, and I always got this result:
Using chapters closer to the end of Daeva, it again told me I write like Stephen King every time I entered chapters.
