What author do you most resemble in your writing style?

    Does your writing style remind you of another author's. Not in anyway, implying plagerism, just asking.

      No.  At least I hope not.  Sometimes, I purposely do not read poetry because I do not want to end up inadvertently mimicking another's style that I admire.

    Here on HP my hubs are my own style, but with my fiction and screenplays I try to emulate Clive Cussler, especially the way he writes his Dirk Pitt novels.  Being a history major, the element of "what if"  and "what's being left out" has always appealed to me.

    I am afraid my style of writing is so outdated one could guess my age by knowing my favorite authors: Ernest Hemingway, Pearl S. Buck and John Steinbeck.  I probably write somewhat like those.

    When I first started writing fiction, my writing voice mimicked that of Lemony Snicket. Quirky, involved, and self-imposing. But it has changed over time, due to the different things that I write. Now my writing voice is a mish mosh of Lemony Snicket, as well as certain online personalities that I have come across.

    my humerous verse often gets me compared to punk poet John Cooper Clark, which I consider a great honour

    In my case, my writing style does not mirror any one particular author or writer. It is entirely unique to me. Simply because my brain is wired differently than everyone else's. So there you have it. My writing style mirrors me.
