I Write Like...
“Check which famous writer you write like with this statistical analysis tool, which analyzes your word choice and writing style and compares them with those of the famous writers.
Any text in English will do: your latest blog post, journal entry, comment, chapter of your unfinished book, etc. For reliable results paste at least a few paragraphs (not tweets).”
You can debate the accuracy of a tool that uses statistical analysis to verify a style, but I’m sort of addicted to this thing—it’s kind of fun to find out who you could be compared to. After writing a chapter or a short segment of a thing, I sometimes plug it into the tool out of curiosity.
Have a go! The last writer “I wrote like” was David Foster Wallace. None of whose books I’ve read, but now I’m curious.
Now to write some more and then plug THAT in.
Who do YOU guys write like?
Douglas Adams, apparently. Froody!
I got David Foster Wallace too. The first book Amazon brought up by him was titled; “A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments”
And he looks like one of our lead animators from Ugly Americans.
It says I write like Chuck Palahniuk.

What does it want from me.
Bug what are you doing with your life.”
