This link appeared on a couple of different blogs that I follow with the invitation to go to the site and have my writing analyzed in order to see who I write like. Most of the people whose results I saw said that they write like Mark Twain. Me, as usual, I have to be different. The results of my analysis showed that .....
That figures. I have never read anything written by Cory Doctorow. In fact, I will be quite honest and admit that, until five minutes ago, I had never even heard of him. A quick search informed me that he is a Canadian activist and writes primarily in the genre of science fiction.
Huh! I hope that doesn't mean that my own writings are so far out there that they would be classified as science fiction; what I submitted for analysis was certainly not intended to be science fiction. I wrote science fiction when I was in 5th and 6th grade. I left that behind me years ago once I learned that we can't really live on the moon.
I guess I will just have to read some writings by Mr. Doctorow to see if this is a good thing or a bad thing. But, let's look at it this way - he is a published author, many times over, so it can't be too bad!
Try it for yourself. Click on the "Analyze your writing!" link above and see who your writing style resembles. It's fun and you might be surprised!
