Your Writing Style
PostPosted: Thu 15 Jul, 2010  Reply with quote

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). http://iwl.me/

I ran some of my DJ entries here through analysis. Each entry came back saying I write like David Foster Wallace, whose works I have never read. Professor Wikipedia says that his writings
Quote:
often combine various writing modes or voices, and incorporate jargon and vocabulary (sometimes invented) from a wide variety of fields. His writing featured self-generated abbreviations and acronyms, long multi-clause sentences, and a notable use of explanatory footnotes and endnotes

Golly, that sounds unweildly. neutral


At least when I input a chapter of a fiction I wrote, the result changed to Arthur C. Clark ^^ How about you?

Seems Wallace is quite the hit, I got him as well. May have something to do with all the strange words I used in the text though.

I entered a paragraph of my DJ and got Wallace, too. I think that nearly every DJ entry from everyone here will link to Wallace since there's a distinctive DJ style.

I entered one of my first DJ entries and it says I write like Shakespear! eek2 Notice how I never read one of his works.

My last DJ entry is written in Dan Brown style, apparently. I've read some of his books, but none in english!^^

I used a post I made from the cloud, and got the result Arthur C. Clarke. Some books he wrote include Childhood's End, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

That was my second result. The first time I quickly typed something up and got the result Steven King.



Current LD goal(s): Have an SD with that cute little crow.

A very recent dream journal entry and a short story gave me Margaret Atwood and Dan Brown respectively. I'm doubtful at its accuracy, but can't help but find it a neat diversion!

I entered in a reaction paper for an online class and got David Foster Wallace, but my research paper in English got me Chuck Palahniuk.

I'm gonna try something I wrote for WG a few years ago...and that one reads like Kurt Vonnegut, apparently.

But in my DJ I write like Stephen King. Hey, gotta make those dreams come to life, eh?

I put in a dream that I wrote a while ago, when I was half asleep and got Stephanie Meyer.
I put in another, more thought about one, and received Lewis Carrol.
And finally, I put in a bit of VG RP, J K Rowling.

I wonder who Bruno's RP would get....

My dream journal reads like Edgar Allan Poe, David Foster Wallace and Chuck Palahniuk: three big inspirations to me, so I'm glad.

My posts in the Cloud read like Lewis Carroll, William Shakespeare and Isaac Asimov. Say what?

Ysim: what did my RP score?

Entries from my personal journal came out as Vladimir Nabokov. (Haw. Haw. Surprise? ) I adore him, I'm rereading Lolita right now, he was a entomologist and had synesthesia. We should have been lovers. End story.

Tried again with a post from the Cloud and got Kurt Vonnegut, who I've never heard of, but it sounds like I'd like him.

Kurt Vonnegut was an American novelist who wrote works blending satire, black comedy, and science fiction, such as Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), Cat's Cradle (1963), and Breakfast of Champions (1973).
