Write Like Hemingway

Wednesday April 04, 2018 Written by Andrew Mueller


Ernest Hemingway has long since ascended
 to that rarefied strata of authors more often knowingly referenced than actually read. It
 is therefore no surprise to discover that the Hemingway App is a tool intended to endow your writing with a terse, economical lucidity rather than, as might be more accurate, turn you into a self-parodically macho blowhard.

The Hemingway App colour-codes your prose, cautioning against complex sentences and meandering sub-clauses, inveighing irritably against adverbs, and suggesting simpler replacements for words that are perhaps unnecessarily recherché. Like recherché, for example.
