I Write Like
"I Write Like" is interesting and a lot of fun. You enter in a large selection of text and it tells you which famous author your writing resembles. I entered in several selections of my writing (blog posts, book drafts, etc.) and they all returned the same result: David Foster Wallace. It inspired me to research him and learn about his work. It was interesting and a lot of fun. I think this tool could be a lot of fun in the classroom. As students learn who they write like, it may spark interest in new authors or new writing styles. Enjoy!
