I was recently talking to a friend about new projects for Writers.com. He suggested developing a writing clarity checker “like the Hemingway app.” I’d heard of Hemingway the writer, but not of an app by that name, so I checked it out. It’s very cool.
The Hemingway app takes any English text, and finds the parts of it that are densely written, that use the passive voice, that use adverbs, and so on. The web app is free; there’s also a desktop version I haven’t tried.
If you’d like a quick and easy writing quality check on your own blogging—or other kinds of writing—this is a great, free place to start.
