Yesterday James Altucher wrote a great post, titled “The One Score That Can Improve Your Writing with a Single Click”
In the post James notes one important fact.
The F-K Score of your writing sometimes dictates it’s success. He notes:
“The Flesch-Kincaid Score was calculated to determine at what grade level you are writing for. If your score is 10, you are writing for a 10th grade level. If your score is 12 you are writing at a 12th grade level. And so on.”
James also notes that great works of literature, score low on the F-K Score. “Heart of Darkness” scored 6th grade reading level. Hemingway’s “Old Man and the Sea” scored a 4th grade reading level.
