Free Writing App

I was lucky enough to recently stumble across Hemingway Editor, a free online writing app:

http://www.hemingwayapp.com/

The program highlights adverbs, instances of passive voice and long-winded, hard-to-read sentences. I’ve always tried to keep my writing as clear and concise as possible – and I’m no fan of adverbs either – so I’ll be using this as I edit the third draft of my novel.┬áLet me know if you’ve used it before in the comments below !

New Theme & Layout

I’ve used the same theme for this blog ever since I first started it – the default (albeit slightly customised) TwentyFourteen. So, today I’ve changed the theme and added a few new touches. I feel that the larger font makes reading easier, and that the new header image has a more professional, mysterious and interesting appearance than before. But that’s enough from me – I’m not the only one who reads this thing! I hope …

What are your thoughts on the new theme? Does it make it easier to read the sample chapters? Do you prefer the new header images? How about the readability of the font? I’d love to know your thoughts.
