I write like…

Birgit from the Book Garden posted about this and it is fun. This website “I write like” analyzes your writing style and tells you what famous writer you write like.

Birgit, by the way, writes like Ursula K. Le Guin, whoever that is. At least I have heard of and read J.D. Salinger before (even though I found Catcher in the Rye extremely boring).

  1. You got the perfect answer; well, probably the “more” perfect one would have been, in my opinion, Fitzgerald or Winterson 🙂 I got H.P. Lovecraft. Never heard of, but the name sounds nice :))

    • Lovecraft, wow! Yes, his name sounds nice but what he writes is disturbing. I couldn’t read it, too much horror for me.


    • Judith, now I am curious.
      I think it depends a lot on the text you enter. I wonder what the result would be if I entered another blog post than the one that I did.


  2. Well, my last book review for Agent ZigZag by Ben MacIntyre was written in the style of Oscar Wilde. However, my review of We, the Drowned by Carsten Jensen I wrote in the style of H.P Lovecraft.

    Using a non-book review blog post I still write like H.P Lovecraft. Hmm interesting. Now what if I put in some of my own writing… hmm Anne Rice. Not sure if I like that! I should have stuck with Oscar Wilde…

  3. I have a film review blog as well… and there I write like David Foster Wallace for my review of Pusher. However for my review of Open Hearts I am James Joyce.

    My writing style is quite the literary collection. I wish they’d say why you write like that author…

    Apologies for the multiple commenting.

  4. No problem, Fiona. It is a little weird. I also wish they would say WHY there are similarities. Maybe there are none and they just have a random generator that comes up with a name no matter what you put in. Ah, I know what I’ll do. I’ll enter the same blog post again and see whether it is still Salinger….


  5. OK, so the result of my test:

    The same blog post turned up as Salinger again, so there probably is SOME rhyme or reason behind it.
    The next two were Dan Brown (ugh) and Kurt Vonnegut! I am intrigued.


  6. I got Stephen King–this time–using a bit of my 2010 NaNo manuscript (that I shall finish for NaNo 2011). I’ve previously been told J.D. Salinger for my YA novel and one other I wasn’t familiar with.
