I write like Swift



Check this out:

Any text in English will do: your latest blog post, journal entry, comment, chapter of your unfinished book, etc. For reliable results paste at least a few paragraphs (not tweets).

This piece "Does Richard Dawkins Think He’s Napoleon?" was actually deliberately Swiftian.

I'll try it again later when I'm feeling more Newmanoid.


Well, I tried three pieces of fiction and a couple of editorials and it is not encouraging. Two Dan Brown's, one Steven King, one Mario Puzo and now H.P. Lovecraft for a movie review.

I think I've had enough of this game...

That picture you (or the site) chose of Dicky Dawk makes him look like Emperor Palpatine.

I must have an inconsistent style or be a plagiarist. I tested my last two articles for The Remnant Newspaper and found one that said I write like Cory Doctorow (who is that!!!) and the other test said I write like James Joyce. At least he made a living at it.
