I saw this entertaining feature via Jessica Zafra’s blog, I Write Like
Here’s my result:

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I Write Like compares your writing styles to famous writers. Just paste a sample of your writing (blog post, novel, essay -- PLEASE NOT A REPORT FOR WORK) then the code will generate on which famous writer you sound like.

Quite honestly, I was aiming for J.D. Salinger, Irvine Welsh or Jack Kerouac -- but a sample from my blog post "Howl" netted the results above. Googled David Foster Wallace and became interested on his writings--he seemed like a great writer. In fact, his novel "Infinite Jest" was included by Time in its All-Time 100 Greatest Novels list (covering the period 1923–2006).

Sadly, David Foster Wallace passed away last 2008. He took his own life following a battle with depression.

Hmmmn...must get a copy of Infinite Jest, then...
