Website Wonders: I Write Like

30 Nov

So I was randomly searching the web when I found this website: I Write Like.

Basically, click on the link, and you can paste any kind of text that you have written into the box. After that, click analyze, and it shows what famous writer you write like. I pasted in the most current novel I have written, even though it was a “just-for-personal-fun” piece.

Check out this website yourself, and see who your inner-famous-writer is.  

I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!

    Apparently, I am a mix between HP Lovecraft and David Foster Wallace. This means nothing to me 🙂

      Maybe one day this analysis will have your name instead of comparing ? hmmm ? 😀

    Apparently i write like Neil Gaiman – and although i have never read any of his work, i’m glad it compared me to a fantasy novelist; which is to say what i aspire to be 🙂 Thanks for sharing

    I write like Mary Shelley? My books aren’t even horror. I sampled a few parts of my book to make sure, and they came up the same. Odd, I’ve never read her work, but now I just might. Thank you for pointing this out. 🙂

      I was also surprised by some of this, because I put in different novels and my journals after I posted. I got an author I was confused by, but maybe it isn’t genre, but how the language falls on the page

    I tried it, Shannon. I write like Vladimir Nabokov.

    I write like H.P. Lovecraft…was a surprise to me!

    I got H.P. Lovecraft twice- with two different pieces of writing. Hmm… interesting.

    I think this is a great concept, lovely find! I got Dan Brown, so I guess I should start writing now to earn my millions!

    I’m shocked – I write like James Joyce. I think I’ll try another section of my novel to see what comes up. Fun, but not sure how precise it is. Too bad I don’t really care for Joyce.

    I went to the website and what a surprise, I write like Margaret Atwood. Very Cool site. Thanks.
