Go to I write like, paste in a sample of your writing and let us know!
You also get a badge (icon) you can place in your blog or website if you’re into that sort of thing.
I pasted in the articles in the ‘more articles’ links at the end of this post. Here’s what writer’s works it considers them most similar to:
- Douglas Adams
- Margaret Atwood
- Isaac Asimov
- Chuck Palahniuk
- Stephen King
- Dan Brown
I’m all over the place!
Ah, well… (Maybe I could say I have a gift of writing in many styles? Nah. Somehow I don’t think anyone is going to buy that one!)
The analytical – scientist – part of me wonders if it’s affected by the subject matter to some extent. GMOs: Margaret Atwood; mental rotation: Douglas Adams; notebooks: Dan Brown…
Maybe this works better for fiction? After all I’m comparing non-fiction with fiction.
Either way, it’s fun to try.
So, what famous writer do you write like?
