Curation Corner: Let Hemingway do the work.

Click here or on the above word cloud for a 90-second run-through of The Hemingway App, an online pair of eyes [creepy, I know] that points out [without browbeating] a writing flaw or two.

Here is an opening sentence I used on another blog…and Hemingway’s feedback. [That hack…I’ve heard he claims to have written The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms.]

You just paste in your masterpiece and out comes the quick but helpful evaluation.

There is also a $20 desktop version.

Note: Thanks to websiteplanet.com for reminding me about The Hemingway App and a few other helpful tools.

The graphic is just the outline of a post by Brian Clark that’s well worth saving. Check it out.

Hope it helps. It should…

And the item inspiring this post…

Here’s hoping the holiday season [despite the weirdness and reduced connections with others] is yielding a few realizations of life’s other fortunes.

This December sunrise, for instance.

Or this towering reminder of the season.

The 12 DAYS OF LOVE LETTER WRITING project continues.

While my draft to Ann Maria ‘cools’, thought I would check in.

Hoping your season is still revealing blessings.

Confession…I’m falling behind! Luckily, I have till the 22nd to get them in the mail.

If you do participate, why not create a quick word cloud highlighting that person’s special traits? Then print it out on the paper you’ll use for your letter.

It’s as if I’m getting to know the recipients.

In reality, though, I don’t know where these are sent.

But I’ve always trusted Love for Our Elders to find those deserving people.

And its Instagram pages continue to encourage me.
