Everybody knows you’re supposed to kill your darilings. But sometimes that’s easier said than done.
It’s summer. Shortcuts are nice. So, next time you’re having a hard time hacking your way out of the verbal underbrush, maybe just use the Hemingway Editor.
You never know. It might get rid of everything you like, and turn your beloved short story into a forlorn piece of faux-Papa prose.
Or, it could show you that less can be more and you didn’t need all that guff to begin with.
Either way, it’s free. What do you have to lose?
