Now I’m depressed. Lots of people have been using the “I Write Like…” web tool today. It purports to analyze a writing sample and tell you what famous author your writing style is most similar to. Jim West gets to be like Jonathan Swift. Stuart gets Bram Stoker. Joe Carter gets Stephen King. And I get Dan Brown? I almost gave up writing completely.
Fortunately, I ran the analysis again using a different sample (the first one was the Saturday Morning Syrup Monster), and this time it came up with Margaret Atwood. At least she can write.
Update: Now I’m just annoyed. Apparently Douglas Adams is one of the possible results. And I get Dan Brown? I need to go find a cat to pick on.
