If your dreams of writing the next bestseller haven鈥檛 yet come true, perhaps you could do with some聽one-on-one聽coaching聽from one of the greatest novelists of our time. You might be saying to yourself, 鈥淚 don鈥檛 have that kind of dough!鈥 But don鈥檛 worry: This writing coach offers his services for free.


Innovative developers Adam and Ben Long have brought Ernest Hemingway back to life through the聽Hemingway Editor. This聽language and syntax聽editor聽will not only聽turn the most shabby聽prose into Hemingway鈥檚聽elegant, economical style, but will also make you look like a literary genius.

The mission of the Hemingway Editor is to allow聽your writing to emulate聽the bold, clear and concise聽style of Hemingway himself. All you have to do is paste your words into the Hemingway Editor interface and wait for聽the editor to provide you with聽a list of grammar and syntax suggestions聽to improve your聽writing.


Don鈥檛 take it too personally when the Hemingway Editor marks up your text in five different colors. Yellow highlights聽show you聽text that is overly long or complex and should be shortened. Red聽represents text that meanders or splits logic, while purple represents words or phrases that should be simplified.聽Blue text represents adverbs: the fewer, the better. Lastly, green text shows you where to use聽the聽active voice. When you have finished editing the text,聽the markup聽will vanish, and you will have a snappy, poetic piece of prose聽that would聽score an A+ with Hemingway.


The Hemingway Editor is a completely free application. With its wide selection of markup tools, this聽editor is good enough to serve as your everyday word processing tool. When you put your聽browser in full-screen mode, the editor can double聽as a distraction-free writing tool that transports you to the聽writing desk of Hemingway and gives you control of聽the pen.
