Writer's Block: My word

If you could have the writing ability of one author, who would you choose, and why? Would you exchange writing styles permanently?

I would pick Kurt Vonnegut, Agatha Christie, Anna Kavan, Angela Carter, Terry Pratchett, H.L. Mencken, Hunter Thompson, or Douglas Adams.

All of them worked very hard at their craft but their writing seems to flow effortlessly; even though I know from reading various autobiographies that it usually is far from easy for any of the writers I love. I would think about changing it permanently because I don't know that I want a voice that isn't "really" my own.
