SNGF - Who Do I Write Like?

Saturday Night Fun from Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings:
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Find something that you have written that you are really proud of - the best of your work. Do an Edit > Copy of it.
2) Go to the website
 http://iwl.me/ and Paste your text into the waiting box.
3) Tell us which famous author you write like. 

This was great fun! I'm very humbled and pleased by the results, however, it makes me want to pay much more attention to what I'm doing. (I think that's a good thing!!)

 I chose three writings and got three different answers:

First, I submitted a portion of Memories, basically my autobiography which is not nearly finished and not posted online anywhere. Apparently, this writing resembled that of Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and more.

Second, I copied the Life and Times of Charles Ruch and Salome Siegler page from this blog. This page was likened to Kurt Vonnegut who "wrote works blending satire, black comedy, and science fiction" (from Wikipedia).

Finally, a blog post for Wisdom Wednesday, Grandma Miller's Wisdom, went into the box. This time the analyzer brought back David Foster Wallace. According to Wikipedia, he is best know for his novel Infinite Jest "which Time included in its All-Time 100 Greatest Novels list (covering 1923-2006)."

Hmmm! That's a lot to live up to!!

  1. Vonnegut and Brown -- that's pretty diverse! How much fun is this? Going to the site now...
