I Write Like Cory Doctorow

I have barely heard of Cory Doctorow, but according to the I Write Like website that is who my writing resembles. From their webpage, “Any English text will do: blog post, journal entry, comment, chapter of your book, etc. For reliable results paste at least a few paragraphs.”

It was a very simple matter of cut and paste.  DC Gilbert was the blogger that introduced me to this website in his post Anne Rice…I write like Anne Rice.

From the website, “Cory Efram Doctorow (born July 17, 1971) is a Canadian-British blogger, journalist, and science fiction author who serves as co-editor of the weblog Boing Boing. He is an activist in favour of liberalising copyright laws and a proponent of the Creative Commons organization, using some of their licences for his books. Some common themes of his work include digital rights management, file sharing, and “post-scarcity” economics.”

I spent a few minutes looking at a few of his blog, Boing Boing and Cory Doctor’s Craphound.  Both are  frenetic platforms for a variety of issues that Doctorow supports and vehicles for selling his books (Craphound) and deals on tech, productivity, online courses and more (Boing Boing Store).  I appreciated the tongue in cheek humor approach in both venues.

I submitted a second blog post and got a different result.  Go figure.  I doubt I am that verstile.

About Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007) was a 20th century American writer. His works such as Cat’s Cradle (1963), Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), and Breakfast of Champions (1973) blend satire, gallows humor, and science fiction. As a citizen he was a lifelong supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union and a critical leftist intellectual. He was known for his humanist beliefs and was honorary president of the American Humanist Association.

  1. Interesting….I pasted in a bit of a blog post and got H.G. Wells, then I tried a bit of a short story and got Vladimir Nabokov!!! I think I read the Time Machine and Lolita years ago, but I don’t really remember what either of their writing was like!

  2. You do find the most interesting sites–all those word quizzes, and now this! I pasted in a few paragraphs from my blog post reminiscing about a special place from my childhood. Apparently that was written like Arthur Conan Doyle. Cool! Then I popped in the beginning of my novel, She Who Comes Forth. Cory Doctorow again! Not sure what this means, but it was fun!
