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.
David Foster Wallace. Um, he committed suicide, but hey, so did Hemingway, right?
o.k. i write like Hemingway, but i am still alive. One more letter on my story and i will be famous.
That's great news. My millions should be arriving soon.lol
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. )
David Foster Wallace
I think I'll go with the two Tolstoys and the Shakespeare and call everything else, "inaccurate".
(I may try some real nonsense, bad-grammar, writing and see what happens. ) (Shakespeare?)
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 ). OK. I've seen enough.
Really good one SF...For a second I really thought what happened? I didn't knew forum supports such images, I mean we cant put them in hub. But really good.
Hey if thats you your really nice lookin wanna go out sometime
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.
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.
they have a good ways to go with that software. Not even close yet. Neat idea though.
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.
David Foster Wallace
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.
So I checked my second account. Each hub (18 total) came up with a different famous author 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?
Charles Dickens? What the hell ? Is this thing really accurate ?
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.
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...
I typed in a long series of four letter words.
I got Stephen King.
So maybe more accurate than I thought.
I write like Stephen King, lololo If only I cold make his money.
Emily Dickinson and Kurt Vonnegut
That was fun I will have to see how many different writing styles I actually have.
P. G. Wodehouse
I looked him up - not bad. I could do much worse.
Ok, how long do I keep trying before I get the author of my choice?
I entered in a couple of paragraphs from one hub.
Hub: Why Are You Intelligent?
I write like says Stephen King

Name a great poet, author or playwright who influenced you to write.I'm assuming that most of us here are writers because we at one point in our growing up thought literature was an amazing thing. Who's your favorite poet or author or what is your favorite work?

The first part of this challenge would take place within the forum. Hubbers can vote on which entry is the best with the normal vote up, vote down system in place.Once a winner, or perhaps winners are chosen the challenge changes and becomes a contest / challenge to write the best explanation to...

If you want to be successful writing online, you're going to need to learn how to write for your reader. Period. Your reader needs to be in your mind at all times! This basic fact about writing was confirmed to me several years ago when I read Stephen King's book, On Writing. In this book he talks...

If you could talk to any Author dead/alive who would you talk to?I would talk to James Patterson because he's the Author who inspired me to write the way I do. Or Edgar Allen Poe... I love his poetry.

I tend to read a lot. Fiction, non-fiction, it does not matter. Some books do more for me than others. I enjoy many different genres but if I had to narrow my selection down to just one author I would have to say that Clive Cussler is my very favorite. I love the Dirk Pitt...
