Motivation and emotion/Assessment/Chapter/Readability


One way to improve a chapter draft is to conduct a readability analysis.

Most readability analyses use formulas based on a combination of:

  • length of sentences (shorter is better)
  • length of words (shorter is better)

Try pasting your URL into the webfx readability tool. Aim for a readability score of at least 50. For example, funerals and grief work (2020) gets a score of 57.

If you would like more diagnostic detail, try pasting text into the Hemingway app.

Can you suggest other readability tools?
