Fancy yourself the next Hemingway? See if it’s true by dropping an excerpt of your writing into I Write Like, a website that analyzes your writing and generates your famous literary match. If your results say you’re channeling Dan Brown instead, though, don’t fret. HuffPo revealed that I Write Like’s creators modeled the site after software for e-mail spam filters, meaning its text analysis is primarily keyword based, and consequently misses stylistic cues such as rhythm and punctuation. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s any less fun plugging in the lyrics to “Alejandro” and seeing which wordsmith pops out.
