What a fun thing to do for writers. My friend Vashti Q had tagged me in a tweet to join in the fun on Twitter and click on a link to an app – ‘I Write Like’, where you then paste a paragraph of your writing in the app and it tell’s you who your writing is like by analyzing word choice and writing style.
So cool! I told Vashti, I’d done this once before a few years ago in another app and it said I write like David Foster Wallace ( I have it on one of my side widgets). So, I hopped on again out of curiosity. Then for good measure, I did it again with another piece of writing. Below is what I got and have also added proudly to my sidebar. And if you’re wondering what Vashti got – H.G. Wells!
Source: You write like Margaret Atwood
So what do you think about these two depictions of my writing? Do you think there’s any kind of a melding between these 2 famous writers? I mean, let’s face it, in this world now, we’d be talking about a monumental task for Sherlock Holmes if he were tasked with solving the crimes of The Handmaid’s Tale with their takeover of America by its own government by changing the occupied parts into the new Gilead. Sounds ominous. That would be a great book, if it weren’t so close to reality. But other than that I don’t get the connection.
