I Write Like is a new site that analyzes your writing style to tell what famous author you write like most. The page contains a window where you can type or paste a paragraph from your personal writings and it will tell you if you write like James Joyce, or Chaucer, or Twain. The program contains numerous excerpts of famous writers’ work which it uses to analyze similarities in your own personal style. The site has had a few interesting results that prove it needs a bit more work. The Huffington Post, points out:
The funniest result so far must be what Margaret Atwood got when she tried out the tool. Atwood, whose name is one of the results that users can get, tweeted on July 13, “According to the I Write Like analysis, I write like… Ta da! Stephen King! Who knew?”
If you need a bit of inspiration, motivation, or just plain fun, I Write Like is worth checking out.
