The Write Stuff
« on: May 11, 2011, 12:15:13 PM »
I stumbled across this site and thought it would be fun to try out for entertainment purposes.  You are able to cut/paste any text and have it analyzed and it spits out the person your writing style most resembles.

Which author does your writing emulate?

It told me that I write like James Joyce

I must be doing something different than most of y'all; three times it has given David Foster Wallace (I love his Infinite Jest, but I could never say that I write like him).

Oh, and just now I pasted one of my replies from the Spanish forum and it brought up Vladimir Nabokov.

Try typing something in French or German. I bet you will get Nabokov.

I got different authors depending on what text I entered, but if I retried with the same text later, it still gave me the same authors.

I was tempted to post a snippet from Hustler just to see what I'd get.  Besides an erection.

I typed in the following off the top of my head...

"The occasion returned mixed emotions: gleefulness, introspection and a craving for a jelly filled doughnut.

Good.  Just my profile.  Such emotions made tracing the origins of the buddy call hard to detect.

What to do?  Perhaps a heartfelt discussion on the merits of disclosure would be a good place to start.

John looked at his only child, a grown man of thirty with strange curiosity.  Did I help to create this person?
A self-congratulatory pat on the back returned a soothing feeling."


...and received the note that "I write like Charles Dickens".   Go figure.  :D

It told me I wrote like Stephen King.

I got Douglas Adams.  Doesn't seem like anyone else listed him so I wonder what makes it lean that way.  I'm a huge fan of both Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett so I take it as a compliment.
