I Write Like…?

By

Yesterday Electric Literature tweeted about I Write Like, a new website that supposedly tells you exactly which famous author your writing style most resembles. All you have to do is copy paste an example of your writing into a box on their main page (be it fiction, blog posts, essays), then bam! Get ready for your author.

So what do you guys think? Is I Write Like accurate or a bit off the mark?
