My girlfriend sent me a link to this website, I Write Like, which analyzes a few paragraphs of your writing, be it fiction, blog posts, or what have you, and lets you know which literary legend in whose shoes you’re now treading.
Of course, I have no idea if I actually write like James Joyce. In fact, I’ve never read anything by Joyce, so it’s not like I can list him as an influence.
However, I will gladly take any ego boosts I can get.
If you, too, enjoy a good ego stroking, check out I Write Like and find out who you write like.
