“I Write Like” Program Compares Your Writing to Famous Authors

I write like
Dan Brown

I Write Like by Memoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Today the web-based “I Write Like” game distracted the online literary and publishing set. Created by Coding Robots and the journal-writing software Memoires, the program measures your prose against famous writers.

You just cut and paste a sample piece of text to play the game. According to the program, this GalleyCat editor writes like Dan Brown in blog post and Believer stories. However, when writing in the first person, the program compares our writing to Chuck Palahniuk.

Who do you write like? Share your reactions in the comments section–we’d love to get a cross-section of the literary influences in the audience. (Via Edward Champion)
