It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.
(I'm bringing along a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)
Walkabout, Week 45:
Thanks to my tendency to lurk on the blogs of other authors, in this case Joyce diPastena's, I stumbled across "I Write Like..." a fun little online text analysis tool. Essentially, you enter a sample of your writing and it uses various mysterious algorithms and statistical analysis (bonus points if you know why the words "statistical analysis" make my little heart flutter) to determine which famous author your word choice and writing style is most like.
So I plugged in a couple paragraphs from my work in progress and got this pretty unexpected result...
Hmmm. *rubs chin* Very interesting.
