To all writers – be you a novelist, journalist, PR-expert, or writer of Christmas letters – I think you’ll get a kick out of the Bla Bla Meter to “unmask” your writing style.
Yep, it detects how much “bull” hides in your text.
Bla Bla Meter Instructions
You simply copy your excerpt (they suggest a minimum of five sentences) into a white field, hit check, and bingo!
My Bla Bla Meter Excerpt
I entered the following text from a previous blog post into the white field:
I’m not just talking about the stories written by our favorite authors for our
reading pleasure. I’m talking about our life stories, the stories that begin on
page one of a blank text on the day we are born and continue until the day – and
sometimes even after – we die.
All the things we tell about ourselves,
all the experiences we remember, the sights, the sounds, the feelings, are part
of our story. As Christina Baldwin says in her book, Story Catcher,
“You are a book of bone and flesh.”
