“You Write Like a Girl”

Yet another affirmation that I write like a girl. Sigh. At least it’s not Jackie Collins.

If you want to give this noxious meme a try yourself, click on the “analyze your writing” link in the picture.

I write like
Margaret Atwood

  1. This is great!

    Although, I put in three different samples of my writing, and got three different answers. Stephen King, JK Rowling, and Dan Brown.

    So, where are my millions??? 😛

    1. A lot of ladies are coming up with Dan Brown for some reason. Perhaps he writes like a girl, too.

      I don’t dare try this more than once. I might actually come up with Jackie Collins next time.

      Your millions are waiting in a Nigerian bank account. Dr. Richard Mfume will be in touch soon to make the arrangements.

  2. I put in several samples from the same essay and ended up with Dan Brown, except for two times when I got Chuck Palahniuk once (never read him but he wrote Fight Club) and H.P. Lovecraft once.

    1. Hey, Takako! Hope things are well with you and your family.

      Hmm…Intrepid U.N. staffer follows trail of obscure historical clues embedded in famous works of art to Cthulhu’s forbidden deathmatch arena, deep within the Mountains of Madness. Sounds like a bestseller to me. 🙂

  3. Cool site. Mine came up as Margaret Atwood also (twice) and Daniel Defoe (once). I tried submitting the same story at various lengths (a page, half a page, three paragraphs) and came up as Stephen King, Margaret Atwood (again), and Douglas Adams. I’d like to know what criteria the progam uses: vocabulary level, syntax, etc?

  4. As I mention in my blog, I got a wide range of different results. Makes sense I guess since I write in different styles and genres, though getting Douglas Adams and Arthur C. Clark annoys me a little.
