I Don't Write Like James Joyce

I write like
J. K. Rowling
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I tried I Write Like—a new statistical analysis tool which analyzes your word choice and writing style and then compares it to those of famous writers—just for kicks. Now, I'm kicking myself, because no matter how many different passages, shopping lists, and letters from my grandmother I submit, I don't get anyone I actually want to write like. Instead of James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, or Nuala O'Faoilean, I get Stephen King, David Foster Wallace, and J. K. Rowling. Maybe I should stop being so snobby and just start writing those bestsellers ...

Paste a few passages of a blog entry, love letter, journal entry, or unfinished novel at I Write Like, and see who you'll be competing with for shelf space at Barnes & Noble.
