Writefull – A new way of writing with confidence image/svg+xml

Writefull is an app that gives feedback on your writing by checking your text against databases of correct language.

I’ve been using Writefull over the past week and it’s proper good. I love the “get words in context” feature. I also love that it’s cross platform and available for macOS, Windows and Linux. There’s also a nifty Chrome extension, if you’re that way inclined.

Sentence Length Colorization image/svg+xml

Certainly, good writing is more than just varied sentence length, but this is a fantastic visualization that makes an excellent point. It wouldn’t hurt to be able to see this kind of thing in our own writing, in an on-demand fashion while editing.

I really like this idea, it would be great to see something like this as a feature within the WordPress editor.
