Talk About Your Infinite Jests…

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

To be fair, I tried this with three different posts. I was curious to see if there would be a dominant style. The first post gave me Arthur Clarke, the second was HP Lovecraft, and the third was Wallace. Apparently consistency of presentation isn’t my strong suit.

Thanks to Wheels for pointing this out.

I thought about trying multiple posts, but Lovecraft worked well enough for my purposes. Besides being one of my favorite authors, it gave me the appropriate post title.

I went back and tried a few more of my longer posts, and got “Arthur Clarke” once and “Dan Brown” twice as results. Then I entered the spam comments from this post into it, and got “H. P. Lovecraft.”

I don’t know how I feel about that.

Funny stuff.

I have to admit that it would have made me cranky if I had come up with Dan Brown at any point.

Can’t stand Dan Brown.

I noticed that too. different posts got different authors. Great ego-boo but probably pretty much meaningless.

Yeah, I’d agree with that.

It probably just for word recurrence or something.

I suspect sentence length is the primary discriminator, actually, but I could be wrong. Maybe I’ll submit the same post several times to see if I get the same result, or if it’s actually a random choice.

Random would make me cranky. Overly simplistic I expect, but random would be a violation of goofy Internet quiz trust.

"Trust”?  I prefer “cartel”, myself.

I’ll leave the meaning of that comment as an exercise for the reader.  And as soon as you figure it out, could you let me know, too?
