I was playing around with the I Write Like Analyzer to get some cheap, easy and highly suspect validation.

So, looking at a few paragraphs of my recently-revised and less written-like-a-retarded-six-year old "Personal Journey" http://www.boldoutlaw.com/robjour/rhjour.html, I found:

I write like
Cory Doctorow

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

And section of the now-discarded early version appeared as if it was written by:

I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

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

I assume this means I've become less scary and just more Canadian. (No, I'm not going to link to the earlier version, but I'm sure it's easy to find.)

For comparison, I looked at my recent review of the 1969 film Wolfshead.


A short selection suggested I wrote like Ursula K. LeGuin. A longer one returned the result of James Joyce. But a much longer selection brought this result:

I write like
William Shakespeare

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

"Worship me, fools! Worship me!"

Well done you! When I tried it on one of my blog entries it told me I wrote like Dan Brown, which was pretty insulting...

That is highly insulting and untrue.

I tried out the prologue of The Da Vinci Code and it said that Dan Brown writes like Dan Brown.

On the other hand, the Shakespeare who wrote Hamlet's "o what a rogue and peasant slave" soliloquy and also Edmund's "excellent foppery of the world" soliloquy from King Lear is apparently James Joyce. Which is an interesting addition to that "authorship controversy".

Well, I'm certainly impressed! I'm a bit jealous too. I got Raymond Chandler -- not that I have anything against him. However, he pales a bit in comparison to William Shakespeare. *g*
