Hemingway is an online word processor and text editor which is free to use. It describes itself as a "distraction-free writing environment", but online word processor is just as good. It's free because it's really a promotional tool for the company's paid-for offline version, but the online version is still very useful.
It has 2 modes. In writing mode, the distraction-free element takes over. You see almost nothing except a blank screen, ready for you to write. There's a minimal toolbar for select bold, italic and so on.
When you're ready to review your work, click the button to switch from writing to editing mode. The system now automatically highlights sections of your text in different colours in order to show incorrect spellings, sentences that are too long, sentences that are hard to read, phrases which should be simplified, and so on.
When you're finished, just copy and paste the text from Hemingway into wherever you want it, such as the email you're composing or the document you're working on.
You'll find Hemingway at http://hemingwayapp.com/ and it works on all major browsers, with no other downloads needed.
