I got a tip about Hemingway Editor from The Bestseller Experiment Podcast. I love playing with new writing tools. Hemingway Editor is an editing program. You paste in your writing, and it spits out suggested edits. It tells you when you have a sentence which is too long, has used too many adverbs, or has used the passive voice. It also suggests simpler ways to say things that you may have made complicated. It does this with easy to understand color coding. I ran my first scene through the program. It had 17 errors. Horrible! It’s a nifty tool and simple to use. In fact, I am running this blog post through it right now! I’ll use it to do a first pass edit before I send to a professional editor.
