Overview
Check the "music" of your writings on Google Docs by automatically highlighting the sentences based on their length.

Based on the quote from Gary Provost:

"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words.
Five word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety.


Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals - sounds that say listen to this, it is important.


So write with a combination of short, medium, and long sentences. Create a sound that pleases the reader’s ear. Don’t just write words. Write music."

Love the concept. Super helpful for pathological wordy writers. Some of my text doesn't highlight. I don't know what causes it but I might want to contribute if I can. Found the source on github. Thanks Mikel!

Very helpful to see in a first glance the rythm of the sentences.
