A Writer's Diet?

Is your writing flabby? Can't say I'd ever thought in exactly these terms. Now I do.

Take a look at an interesting new tool at this website, established in connection with the publication of Helen Sword's books, Stylish Academic Writing and The Writer's Diet. Insert an excerpt from your own writing and discover if its in shape.

Oddly, I found Stylish Academic Writing a trifle too academic, possibly because she's addressing all disciplines. Much  more to my liking was Stephen J Pyne's Voice and Vision: a Guide to writing history and other serious nonfiction
