“I entered my last blog post and was told I write like Edgar Allan Poe,” NYT blogger Jennifer Schuessler wrote. “Pretty neat. But then a colleague plugged in a paragraph from Poe’s “Fall of the House of Usher” and was told it sounded like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.”
One reader commented: “Thank you for debunking that. It told me I write like Dan Brown,
and I almost killed myself.”
Brown, meanwhile, has gone into seclusion after learning that he writes like Jane Austen.
PS: Only parts of this post are true. The rest is fiction. I would like to dedicate it to Jonas (I hope you’ve gotten that dreadful program to finally give you Hemingway.)
Also, I have no idea who did the cartoon — now floating freely about the Internet. (Email if you know the source.)0
