Next time you need to write a long email message or some other document, or maybe a letter, try running the text past Hemingway before you send it. Not Ernest, of course, but the free web-based text analysis tool that shares his name.
Hemingway checks your text, tells you what reading level it scores, and gives you tips on how to improve your writing. In the example below, for example, it suggests changing "all of" to a simpler "all". Not all of its suggestions are as sensible, but it's still a fun exercise, especially with the kids' homework maybe!
Hemingway is available as a desktop app, but the easiest way to use it is via the free web-based system. Just go to www.hemingwayapp.com and paste in some text from your PC, for instant feedback.
