I Write Like?July 15, 2010
Blog-related post here. I gotta hand it to Hunter, sometimes I find some pretty interesting things on his blog.
Ever wonder who you write like? Copy your latest blog post and paste it in over here to find out. Here’s what I got when I plugged in my Misty Mountains post:
Obviously, this is purely for fun and I gotta wonder just how exactly these results are generated (Edit: According to Hunter, there are more than 30+ possibilities) — but I do find it a little amusing how out of all the available choices, my style (in a post where I bitched about the cold, no less) has been pegged for being most like that of Canada’s most renowned female writer.
I’m ashamed to say I’ve never actually read any of Atwood’s novels (The Handmaid’s Tale is on my reading list, I swear!) but I’m fully aware of her talent as a wordsmith as well as her poetic style. As much as I’d like to think otherwise, I know “wordsmith” and “poetic” are two words that definitely do not describe me and my writing, so while the comparison is certainly flattering, I also know it’s downright bull. Like I said, it’s just for fun. If you have a minute to spare, why not give it a shot? I’m curious to see who my fellow bloggers write like.
