Ooh, that's rather nifty. Thanks for sharing the tip :)
All the fun of Wordle but more useful! :)
Impressive, I suspect my writing is not so lean... ;-) Happy Sunday!
I shared the link on twitter but couldn't see you on there to credit with pointing me in its direction. Are you on twitter?
Talei - there's room for all sorts in the library :)
Sara - thanks for sharing - I'm not on twitter as yet. No worries witht the credits - I got it off facebook!
Isn't just, Dave!?
A lean writing machine? That's great! I think my writing could use a bit of trimming back now and again.
Ha ha, that's so coll. I am lean too. Not very surprising as I tend to cull words rather than add them :)
Give it a go, Helen, though I think your words are lean enough - really enjoying your current blog posts!
Culling's a good sign of a skilled self-editor, I think, Nuala - means gadgets like this can be just for fun!
Fascinating, especially to see that my fiction is a lot leaner than the MA dissertation I did three years ago - tells me my writing has improved through practise. Although I was not entirely lean, I attribute that to the fact that there was dialogue in the fiction submitted. Thanks for the link.
No worries, Sandra! That's very cool that your writing is getting leaner as you go. Glad you liked the link.
Margery has discovered she needs toning - or could she make do with her corset? Seriously, a great resource, isn't it? Managed fit and trim. It made me think about verb-use.I tried pasting some James Joyce into it. He came out lean on all counts. It would be interesting to subject other authors to the treatment.
Hahaha. Margery would have no doubt embraced this technology, thoug I doubt it would have altered her style much. It's quite addictive. Joyce is possibly anorexic by the BMI of this gadget, however - give the man a sentence expander - build him up some!You could make a chart for different authors - an excerpt slim club; see who comes out the trimmest....that's probably fattist though....
I'm afraid to take the test. I know I'm too wordy.
Kass! x:)Missed you!Your wordy is not the kind of wordy to be feared.
Brilliant! And addictive. "I'll just try this one..." etc. Thanks for the link to this.Over on my blog I've just linked to 'Escape Behaviours' as part of one of those award-thingies that do the rounds every so often. I'm sure you'll have had LOADS of these in the past so only reciprocate if you want to. I just wanted to link to your awesome creation.
No worries for the links - glad to have bumbled across it! It's provided much distraction so far!Thank you - I do love getting awardy things - and thanks so much for thinking of EB - that's champion! x Will be over anon to collect and give my Taylor Swift speech, or is it Kate Winslet....?
Apparently my writing is flabby. Now I'm upset with you! It's all your fault.:)
Hahaha! Blame the gadget, not the messenger! Besides, post vacation relaxed prose is forgivable!
