Feeling fidgety and unproductive?  Please say yes, so I don't have to add "guilty" to my list. 

I saw this link on the Writer Unboxed Facebook Group and couldn't resist the temptation. 

For TENDRIL the result was James Joyce
For UNQUIET SOULS the result was J. K. Rowling
For FOOLISH (my YA Contemporary Romance) the result was Cory Doctorow

If only!

Paste a few paragraphs of your novel, blog, or other writing into The Analyzer and share your results in Comments.


  1. Chuck Palahniuk for me, apparently. Didn't see that one coming..

  2. Stephen King, I can live with that. :)
    What a fun trip -- thanks for sharing!

  3. Cory Doctorow in the house. What fun. I wonder if you'd still get the same result each time you entered it?

  4. I have no idea how it works - when they talk about "word choice" do they mean percentage of adjectives/verbs etc or do they mean active/passive or flowery/non-flowery? I mean isn't writing just that? Word choice. The whole Style Analyzer might just be a literary version of the Magic Eightball, but it was fun.
