Whether you write for a living or just as a hobby, sometimes we all need a little bit of motivation, and today, I found mine! A new tool from a journaling software company analyzes your writing and compares you to an accomplished famous writer. Just copy and paste a few paragraphs of text into the tool, hit the "analyze" button, and view your results! My first try gave me Ernest Hemmingway — not too shabby!
Friends of mine received results like Raymond Chandler and David Foster Wallace. And after analyzing this short article, the tool says I write like Dan Brown (man, I sure wouldn't mind collecting his Da Vinci Code paycheck).
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to chain myself to my laptop and my favorite writing program, and pen the next Great American Novel.
