Apparently I write like David Foster Wallace

Have any of you checked out I Write Like? I know I've been out of the blogger world for a while (hey, what can I say, it's summer) but this tool is pretty neat.

I've never read David Foster Wallace but I will now. And I've always wondered who I write like since I know my writing style is different than any authors I've read - don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I pasted a whole chapter into I Write Like and David Foster Wallace was my answer.

I wish it would tell me why though...

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

Fun tool! I tried two distinct sections of my current WIP. In the Greek God section apparently I write like William Shakespeare, and in the modern teen section it matched me with Stephen King. >>giggle<<

Nice to 'meet' you, and looking forward to learning about your project as your CampNaNo cabin mate!
