Hello all!

Ever wondered whose style of writing your own most closely matches?
There's a site where you paste in something you've written, and tells you who you resemble..

Check it out : IWL

Apparently my style most resembles Chuck Palahniuk, which to be honest, I'm thrilled at!


It would be great to see how other budding writers on here fare, will you be pleased, disappointed, or just plain surprised?

Erm ... I pasted my last short story in it and: files.abovetopsecret.com...

Darn thing is either brokered or about to ask me for money.

Killer...

Well then sir, either you're a master of words, or you use way too many archaic terms in your writing!

My brother just tried, up came James Joyce for him..

Suddenly I feel somewhat lowbrow

I input one of my recent posts and received:

H.P. Lovecraft

Out of curiosity I tried the same text and the result was the same. I also input several passages from various authors and the program recognized each according to its maker.

Oh...my...

This is not what I expected. The result of my post is a request if I would want something published.

Okay, so I write like Kurt Vonnegut.

At least I did for an artist statement I recently submitted to a gallery.

Indeed! Love a bit of David Foster Wallace..
Infinite Jest is a great one:


"Infinite Jest" is a movie so entertaining and addictive, anyone who watches it loses all desire to do anything else. Individuals, organizations and governments vie to obtain the master copy, and recovering addicts get caught up in increasingly desperate attempts to control it.

I pasted some snippets from different posts of mine and the results I got made me suspect that the 'analysis' is based on vocabulary rather than style.
Then I found this:
scienceblogs.com...

There's a devious web site called "I write like…" that is making the rounds — you paste in some of your text, and it claims to analyze it and tell you what famous writer you resemble.


Check out the two links from the article:
nielsenhayden.com...
nielsenhayden.com...

Edited to add:
A blog snippet in Chinese returned Raymond Chandler. The story was about the well-known French cigarette 'Gauloise', you know, the type that's so strong it blows you out of your socks after just one drag.
This site is complete hooey but a lot of fun to play with.
Thanks OP.

James Joyce was a famous Irish writer:
en.wikipedia.org...


Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressinggown, ungirdled, was sustained gently behind him on the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned:
- Introibo ad altare Dei.
Ulysses
Opening words of book

Oh this is so funny. It said I write like Stephen King. I don't care one way or another for him but I love a good horror movie or book!

After entering my BBOT story I got this:

I write like Kurt Vonnegut

I liked Slaughterhouse-Five but I'm not sure what to make of that.

So I entered two more of my short stories and got:

For 666 My Summer Vacation I write like Stephenie Meyer

And for DD Precious Memories I write like Chuck Palahniuk

I really don't put a whole lot of stock in this analyzer. It's fun, but don't take it seriously.

I just put the first paragraph of the story I'm working on into it and it gave me Stephen King as well. I wasn't expecting that, but the genre of the story is something you might expect from him, so I suppose it kind of makes sense. It'll be interesting to see if it still says King when I'm finished.

edit: Heh, I just put in the complete text of my old "The Book of Breathings" story, linked in my signature, and it says Dan Brown for that one. The differences could be attributed to the length of the piece (1 paragraph vs 1 complete story), the different genres, and the seven or so year gap between them, but most likely the analysis isn't quite accurate :p

Its random really.

I inserted different parts of a story that I recently uploaded on ATS

the intro gave me :Mary Shelley

the prologue gave me:H.P Lovecraft
and the first chapter gave me :Charles dickens

Well I was thrilled with the totally awesome results until I tested it.

I entered some random text namely :Herp Dep...it gave me Jonathan Swift..
well the guy was known for satire.

Also if you enter "All work and no play makes Jack a Dull Boy" several times you get P.G Wodehouse

And if you enter "gay people" several times you get Kurt Vonnegut


racist terms several times give you Mark TWain ....I almost died laughing

(Batman gives you Agatha Christie btw )
