The Writer's Diet The Wasteline Test™

The Wasteline Test™ is a diagnostic tool that assesses whether your sentences are "flabby" or "fit." Originally developed for academic writers, the test has also proven popular with students, technical writers, business analysts, journalists, and even fiction writers. Based on a simple algorithm, the Wasteline Test searches for words in each of five grammatical categories. The higher the percentage of highlighted words, the flabbier your score. For best results, use the Wasteline Test together with The Writer's Diet, which discusses stylistic subtleties and exceptions that the test cannot address
