The Style Gallery is a great new way for you to view, love, and share outfit photos. It’s meant to showcase all the expressive, creative, and inspirational personalities of our community!
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.

shelf life, writing
apparently i write like….vladimir nabokov…famous author of lolita…interesting…fun website!
Haha, I put in a couple samples. I got David Foster Wallace twice, then Margaret Atwood.
For one of my blog posts I got Steven King, then tried another and got James Joyce… Interesting.
Cool site though! <3
….as long as i dont get Stephenie Meyer…..
one of my academic articles gave me david foster wallace as well!
I write like Margaret Mitchell, David Foster Wallace, Dan Brown, and Kurt Vonnegut depending on which paper I submit. The one that was analyzed to be like Margaret Mitchell was the worst paper I ever wrote in my opinion.
I got David Foster Wallace and Vladimir Nabokov.. apparently a lot of people get wallace o:
Nine times out of ten I got James Joyce…that other time I got Vladimir Nabokov. My two favorite writers! Not bad!
it definitely is keyword-based. i submitted a descriptive piece and got dan brown, then submitted a classification essay i wrote about harry potter, and got j.k. rowling. i was not shocked haha fun idea though!
I apparently write like stephenie meyer. hu.
I got stephen king. I’m confused now!! It’s so funny and a great way to amuse myself if I’m bored, though.
It is a bit faulty but fun, nonetheless! I end up getting H. P. Lovecraft for most of my formal writing and thesis papers. I also submitted an analysis I wrote on a musical composition and got Kurt Vonnegut, which is disturbing…
I got Dan Brown. I think it’s nifty 🙂
(I don’t think Mr. Brown would have used the word “nifty”!)
I also got David Foster Wallace when I put in an academic paper……
i put in a couple of essays and short storys and i ended getting Raymond Chandler over and over again huh
Apparently I write like Dan Brown.
This could either be a good or bad thing.. haha.
I got Stephen king for something I wrote off the top of my head, and then everything copied from journals/posts I got Cory Doctorow (who i’ve never heard of).
I got Chuck Palahniuk, Dan Brown, and Harry Harrison for three separate story beginnings. Interesting.
I put in one of my favourite poems i’ve written and got Jane Austen.
I am very okay with this =)
ha..i write like cory doctorow. i just had to look him up and i think he’s a young adult author…interesting
Cory Doctorow, a young man I’ve never read, a blogger/science fiction author from Trotskyite parents. This might have something to do with using old Xanga entries. Political rants turned up Nabokov. I’m glad to see there’s a variety of authors given.
I put in a chapter from the novel I was writing and got Dan Brown. Lame ._.
i love this site.
i got Sir Conan Doyle
David Foster Wallace is very popular… [I do hope this is our only resemblence, or rather said: was our only resemblence,]
Ugh…apparently I write like Stephenie Meyer. Though her writing style is amazing and I should be flattered, but the movies and screaming teenage girls that surround her books just leave a bad taste in my mouth after saying her name.
I plugged in an old MySpace blog I wrote 4 years ago and got Cory Doctorow 🙂 But somebody on here already told me that would happen, LOL.
“Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. was an American novelist who wrote works blending satire, black comedy, and science fiction.”
Delightful! Even though I may not write science fiction, the other two sound about right for me. 😉
Chuck Palahniuk. That’s who I write like, that’s interesting. Never heard of him before. Anyone else hear of him? Anyone else get him? If not…cool. I like being different!
I just found out he writes horror. I don’t. But then again it’s the style of the writing. I am a writer of anything possible. From a diary to a novel to a poem to a short story to sheet music to lyrics to descriptions for clothes to greeting cards to notes to anything and everything. I write any form of thing.
I also write like william shakespeare.
I looked up some stuff about this site and it’s not even accurate. Oh well, it’s still fun to check it out!
