The Waistline Test….Put Your Writing On A Diet

If you haven’t visited this site, I recommend it!!  You can copy and paste your writing into The Waistline Test and it will rate your work by counting percentages of words in five categories that often give writer’s some difficulty: weak verbs, abstract nouns, adjectives/adverbs, waste words and prepositions.
Each word in your sample that fits into one of these categories is color coded so that you can easily locate any problems and begin to think about how to lighten up your writing.
