Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
I’m not making any insinuations about your text. Just sayin’. Maybe you should run it through this handy-dandy tool before you press Publish.
I ran my book blurb and a few of my blog posts through it, and it showed “few indicators”, like .125 etc.. so i am not as a big a BSer as I thought I was. However, just out of curiosity, I ran a BIG blogger (20,000 followers) who tells people all about how to write, publish and market, and it scored nearly off the charts at 9.
Congrats on your low score! Reassuring, isn’t it?
And I’m not at all surprised at the BIG guy’s score. I don’t know who it is, but I cringe when I read a lot of that kind of stuff and realize I’m actually being sold something.
I scored a .24 by sticking in a few paragraphs from my last blog entry. According to the meter, my writing is “acceptable.” I’ve never been so enthused about a response. People usually throw rotten fruit.
Acceptable is nothing if not perfectly adequate. You should be proud of yourself, young man!
(I wonder what kind of score that statement would get…)
My goal as a writer is to be wholly passable and not at all obviously poor. To be considered not particularly awful by my peers is a life’s ambition come true. I think I shall phone my mum now and tell her the good news!
I just did it and got a score of 0.03 and the note no bullshit. I love this.
You’re straight-shooter, John. Or you lied to the BS detector. Which is it?!
Just threw in a story which was a total piece of fiction and poof! Guess we call it honest fiction
With a .14, I’m not up to Eric’s level of BS, but apparently I BS more than John. I’m not sure what that means.
Maybe we should be trying for higher scores. Shouldn’t the point be to BS as much as possible without getting caught? 😈
LOL. One would think. Perhaps Eric should hold a class on improving levels of BS in writing. 🙂
He’s nothing if not acceptable.
