“I Write Like…”
I went to I Write Like this morning to find out, well, who I write like. At least, according to this particular website. I put in six passages from the third Birthright novel I’m working on right now, and I got Dan Brown four times, plus once for H P Lovecraft and once for Cory Doctorow. The passage when it compared me to Doctorow was deliberately written in a different style, as the character was under duress at the time, so at least I was able to fool the computer into thinking the character was acting abnormally! I was considering just typing in random gibberish to see if it responds with something like “You write like: an illiterate goat who just headbutted the keyboard a few times.”
The website for that is http://blog.iwl.me/ Go find out who you write like!
