    Visit the link above, paste some text of your hub and know your writing style is similar to which famous author.  It is not accurate but I think it is fun.  Don't forget to comeback and tell us what you write like

    I write like Cory Doctorow

        Mark was Cory Doctorow not famous? and wish I could write like you, then I wouldn't need to take care of boring jewelery business.

    I also write like Cory Doctorow. Who is he?

      englightenedsoulposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I just googled his name.  Cory Doctrow was a canadian journalist and science fiction author.  It seems like he was also a blogger, so may be most hubber would be writing like  Cory Doctorow...

    David Foster Wallace.  Um, he committed suicide, but hey, so did Hemingway, right?

      lorlie, I got a DFW too.  I don't even know that one.    There does seem to be a suspicious number of "Cory Doctorow's" so far.    roll

      Michael, try a different Hub.  Maybe you'll get a living author next time.  lol  The way I see it, keep going to 'til you get someone you're happy with, and then stop.  lol

    That's great news. My millions should be arriving soon.lol

  7. Lisa HW profile image65
    Lisa HWposted 8 years ago

    I did a few just to see how off-the-wall it may be or not be.

    I got a Cory Doctorow too.  BUT....

    I got these when I tried some different types of Hubs.  (I notice they're selling both a Stephen King book on writing and some Shakespeare book.  hmm)

    Stephen King

    Leo Tolstoy

    Margaret Atwood

    David Foster Wallace

    Stephen King

    H.P. Lovercraft

    William Shakespeare

    Dan Brown

    Cory Doctorow

    Leo Tolstoy

    I think I'll go with the two Tolstoys and the Shakespeare and call everything else, "inaccurate".   lol  lol

    (I may try some real nonsense, bad-grammar, writing and see what happens.  lol)  (Shakespeare?)

  8. Lisa HW profile image65
    Lisa HWposted 8 years ago

    I just tested someone's stuff from the religious forum, and the person got a "Dan Brown".  I think the title of the link should be, "I Write About the Same Kind of Stuff That ______________ Writes About."    (Oh well.... it was fun anyway.)

    I couldn't resist doing one more sample from the religious forum.  That person got an Isaac Asimov (and, trust me, that writer is NO Isaac Asimov  lol ).  OK.  I've seen enough.   lol

    WizardOfOzposted 8 years ago

    Doctorow is co-editor of boingboing, not just any blogger.  Also, this i write like is just a ploy by some programmer to get traffic and sell dodgy ebook.  So I've read.

  11. WizardOfOz profile image60
    WizardOfOzposted 8 years ago

    Just had a look for myself, makes sense to not just listen to the crowd.  Not going to give them my email but on first appearance seems innocent enough.

    Here's the link I was referred to this morning.  Got some buzz, clearly.  Scam?  Maybe not.

  15. Rafini profile image86
    Rafiniposted 8 years ago

    Too cool!  I checked 4 different hubs and had 4 different comparisons.  I was hoping to find just one or at least a dominant one - and I only know two of the writers listed. hmm


    JK Rowling
    David Foster Wallace
    Kurt Vonnegut
    Charles Dickens

    I'm going to check one of my poems...brb

    Margaret Atwood  -  I know I've heard the name before..now I want to check out all these writers. smile

    1. Rafini profile image86
      Rafiniposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      So I checked my second account.  Each hub (18 total) came up with a different famous author hmm most of whom have already been mentioned.  Others, that haven't been mentioned yet:

      Edgar Allan Poe
      Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes author - I had to look him up. lol)
      Vladimir Nabokov (Lolita - had to look him up too)


      Just for fun and all, but it does make one wonder and hope...doesn't it?  big_smile

    Charles Dickens? What the hell ? Is this thing really accurate ?

      lol I know, too funny, right? lol

    Aficionadaposted 8 years ago

    I read an article about the iwritelike site.  The man who wrote the book and who came up with the software (both, if I recall correctly) is Russian, so English is not his first language.  He said that he plans to include more authors in the future in his database.  But it does sound like fun, if it's not taken too seriously.

  18. Daniel Carter profile image74
    Daniel Carterposted 8 years ago

    I don't know but the easy, obvious answer is that we all write like Cory Doctorow. And since it's on the net, it's like, really accurate, yes??

    I can't wait for the "think like Einstein" site...

  20. AEvans profile image77
    AEvansposted 8 years ago
