I came across this online analyzer called I Write Like that tells you who you write like. Of course, it’s a little difficult to figure out what to put into the analyzer since excerpts from plays often reflect the voice of a specific character. So I decided to put in two different excerpts to see what came up.
First let’s talk poetry. I put in the last poem I wrote:
Prelude to The River Bride
the Amazon time stands still, as if this river wrapped its long body
around it and contracted. The only time here is once, once upon a time
somewhere between dream, between myth, between the shores of reality
all the old ones this fairytale will end in tears, tears spilling off
the edge of a pier. It will end with two sisters, one constrained to
land and one to the Amazon’s timeless embrace. Two sisters, two sisters
and a man fished from June waters just three days before a wedding.
And the result on my poetry:
As for plays, I put in an excerpt from Heart Shaped Nebula, a part of a monologue by Miqueo and result is:
Lastly, I put in an excerpt from Braided Sorrow, part of a monologue that looks like a poem on the page and the result was James Joyce.
So, if we smoosh them together do we get me? But if my instincts are right, each character or play may have a different result.
