Who Do You Write Like?

I just found this amazing analyzer – I Write Like– where you can copy and paste any example of your work and have an instant literary “match”.

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).

Today’s sample says I write like Rudyard Kipling.  What does yours say?

  1. My first attempt, which was fiction, said that I write like James Joyce. My second attempt, which was from my blog, said I write like Cory Doctorow, whom I’m not familiar with. Will have to research that person! That was fun!

    • I thought this was very cool. I want to go back and try billing statements, junk mail, travel guides. It might make me feel better if boring text had literary ancestors. Did you find out who Cory Doctorow was/is? Any relation to E.L. Doctorow, author of “Ragtime”?
