My blog's readability level

Hmmm. My editors at Enslow always have to remind me to make my writing simpler because, you know, my books are for kids.

Yeah, but hey, they need college prep curricula, right?

Sminthia said...

Hey, don't feel so bad. My blog got a "Genius." I only wish they thought I was a genius, not that it would take a genius to understand my blog.

Maybe I should have written "icky stuff" instead of "phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase."

Sara Latta said...

Yeah, I suppose phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase would bump it up out of the middle grade level.

Sminthia said...

Not to be picky, but it's phosphoenolpyruvate carboxyKINASE, not phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase.

Remind me not to send you to the store for enzymes.

Sara Latta said...

Damn that Calvin cycle! It's been imprinted on my brain.

My dad said very much the same thing when he sent me to the store for farm parts.

So have we upped your readability level yet?

How was that?
