Friday Fun Link – IWriteLike.me (July 15, 2010)

A new site called IWriteLike.Me claims to analyse your writing and tell you which author's style you most resemble.  I tried it with a couple recent blog posts and got Dan Brown (great! ). 

On the other hand, when I copied in the recent article I wrote for real money and with a bit of effort to it got me rated as Chuck Palahniuk.  Because you know that the members of Credit Unions across Canada want nothing more than to read some blogger's quasi-Fight Club prose stylings!   Although it was an article about a kick boxing deposit specialist so who knows – maybe it's just looking for certain words? 

Hmmm, let's try something.   “In the haunted house, Carrie stood covered in blood.  Outside, a rabid dog watched as a vampire hovered at the window.”

And the result for this entire blog post is…not what I expected.

I write like
Chuck Palahniuk

    You've got Palahniuk, and I came up with Cory Doctorow. I think it's a toss-up.
