While busily catching up on all the posts I’ve missed since I fell into this year’s NaNoWriMo, I happened upon CK’s post regarding the “I Write Like” writing analyzer/web tool. The page lets you insert examples of your writing and then spits out the famous author it deems your work to resemble the most.
I was intrigued.
So, I scrolled through the kingdom and pulled out several different kinds of posts to review, entered them into the tool, clicked on the analyze button, and here are the results:
One of my posts where I describe the sunrise was written like: Stephen King
Interesting, interesting, interesting.
Should I be worried that my writing style is all over the place and I “sound” different depending on the type of post I’m doing? Or, should I be impressed that I’m able to change that voice depending on the message I’m trying to convey?
What do you think? Is it good or bad that my results were so varied?
Then again, who cares!!!!
The tool said I write like Stephen King three different times. I’m. In. Heaven.
