I Write Like...

I've been a little bit Out Of The Loop the last month or so, and as it turns out, I've missed a lot of fun with the "I Write Like..." application at http://iwl.me/


For fun, I pasted my blog post "Thought on an Old Farmhouse" and found out I write (at least that post) like



I write like
Chuck Palahniuk
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!


I did not know he wrote "Fight Club."  I've seen the movie...Not sure what to make of that comparison.

Thought I'd try again with "Adventures in Iowa", a little different post, and here's the result:



I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Reading up on Wikipedia, I find that the Los Angeles Times book editor David Ulin called Wallace "one of the most influential and innovative writers of the last 20 years."  Hmmm!  Good!  However, reading on, I see that Wallace committed suicide 2 years ago.  Hmmm.... not so good.

Well, if nothing else, it was fun.

  1. This was really fun! All I could think of to use for writing samples were emails I had sent. So I copied an email I sent to you recently, and it came back as a Stephen King knockoff. I don't know how many times I've said my life story reads like a Stephen King novel - now I finally have proof. :)

    On Tries #2 and #3, I also got David Foster Wallace. I have no idea who he is, but if you got him too, he must be pretty good. Except for the suicide stuff.
