I tried this site that analyzes which famous writer one writes like. I didn’t like the result of my first two attempts because the results were Kurt Vonnegut and James Joyce. I don’t know them. Who are they? Writers. Duh.
But like a kid who found a nice toy, I was amazed at the result of my third try. The result says I write like Stephen King. Honestly, I haven’t read any book of him, but who wouldn’t know the Stephen King?
Then I continued “analyzing” my other articles on that site.
Another result that made me joyful was the “Chuck Palahniuk” result. My initial reaction was “Wow. Wow. Chuck Palahniuk!”
But then I know the site’s not accurate and probably the creator of it is just too nice and badly wants to make other “striving” writers to be happy — even just on his site.
Here are the other results (I didn’t paste all my articles there, really).
Kurt Vonnegut – 4 times. Who the heck is that guy.
David Foster Wallace – 3 times
Cory Doctorow – 11 times. Who who.
Ursula K. Le Guin
H. P. Lovecraft
James Joyce for the 3rd time.
Chuck Palahniuk- 2 times
Lewis Carroll (haha. of course. My post was about Carroll’s book.)
Dan Brown- 3 times(What? Haha. I don’t think so.)
Stephen King-6 times
Margaret Atwood -3
Arthur Conan Doyle (LOL. simply because the article I wrote was about Sherlock Holmes, I already write like Doyle ?)
Robert Louis Stevenson
So, I figured out the site doesn’t really analyze articles based on your writing style. It analyzes your articles based on the topic of your articles.
