My friend Brooke at Paper Mountain pointed out an awesome website called I Write Like. You can paste an excerpt from your novel into the box and it uses a statistical analysis tool to compare your word choice and writing style to that of numerous favourite authors.

I must say I am extremely happy with the result although I do doubt it’s authenticity! If you’re a writer you definitely have to have a go at this. It’s quite enlightening.
