ERNEST HEMINGWAY DIDN’T NEED THE HEMINGWAY APP AND NEITHER DO YOU
I (and a ton of other young writers) use Tumblr to post original content and excerpts from novels in progress. When I’m not posting to Tumblr, I’m browsing Tumblr. A lot. Too much. I’m reading new stuff and following other writers and using tagged words to track posts with plotting and editing tips.
Novice writers with an intense hunger to improve their craft are as old as writing itself, only now that hunger can be sated at lightning speed. A Google search of the keywords “writing help app” reveals a daunting number of pages with a daunting number of mobile and desktop programs designed to clean-up, cut down, and spot-check your work. Among those programs (the second search result listed) is the Hemingway App.
If you peruse Tumblr or Paste Magazine or The New Yorker or Motherboard, chances are you already know what I’m talking about. The Hemingway App grades your writing based on readability and gives your work a rating of either “Good”, “Bad” or “Ok”.
The pictures above are screenshots of direct portions of famous works I ran through the Hemingway App. I tried to stick to a comparable number of sentences for each piece, since the ratio of hard to read sentences in the total work can skew the results.

Hey friends! If you’ve been following me since February I am very sorry to annoy you with yet another post about my ex boyfriend Steve, shavingryansprivates, regarding his awful behavior towards others.
A few months ago I spoke openly about how he sexually assaulted me while we were together sometime in December or January. After publicly speaking about his mistreatment towards me, 3 girls messaged me sharing their experiences with him. Amid exposing male bloggers for their predatory behavior recently, 4 more have come forward to tell me about their experiences with him.
So I’m compiling this post so his other victims can share their stories and have their voices heard. Just so everyone knows, it’s a very long post.
Warning: there are mentions of #sexual assault, #emotional abuse, and #predatory behavior so please exercise caution if you continue to read.
Two more people have come forward to share their experiences!
I feel so guilty and scared I just…..am not a good person and what I’m doing is repeating this over and over in hopes someone will prove I am but no one can inside my brain and Jesus Christ I am SO vulnerable I have no protection and I have no self esteem and I feel like the only thing i have is what I can give people and that’s why I am nice to feel like I am not worthless and that’s such a bad reason and I feel bad when people are nice to me and I feel like I am just a huge waste of time and I think there’s only ONE person who could convince me I’m not and it’s so pathetic that I made someone I barely knew that important or that I still remember ONE DATE or that I am me and that I do this I’m so pathetic I cannot stand myself
