I Write Like...

I was reading Destination: Austin Family this afternoon. Thomas read a post over at Karen About Genealogy talking about a writing style analyzer called I Write Like... What you do is copy and paste text from something you have written, like your blog, in the analyzer. It then tells you who your writing style is similar to. Being a bit of a sucker for fun stuff like this, I gave it a try. The result was a bit of a surprise:

I write like
Margaret Mitchell
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Why is this a surprise? My grandmother's maiden name was Margaret Mitchell. Dad used to love to tell people his mother was Margaret Mitchell (of course he left off the fact that it was her maiden name). I think Dad and Grandma are chuckling right now.

Who do you write like?

  1. Very cool!!! I think I will try this, too, although I'm almost afraid to find out who I write like.
