Practice, focus, diligence and courage. Writing requires all those disciplines if you want it to be good. But whether a writer is lacking in one (or all) of those areas or faces a completely different hurdle, styling perfect sentences to convey the appropriate message is often a lot harder than it appears.
Ludwig is well aware that writing isn't for everybody—yet nearly everyone has to deploy those talents every now and again. That's why the Ludwig sentence search engine is available to give every sentence the polish a crafty writer needs. Right now, a lifetime of access to Ludwig's services are just $119, 60 percent off the regular price.
Ludwig is like having an English teacher reading over all your writing—without any of the guilt or feelings of inadequacy. When you take the sentence you wrote and put it into Ludwig, the service then compares your sentence against the best of the best, over 200 million exceptional English sentences selected from top-quality sources including official documents, scientific journals, and prize-winning journalism.
Judged against that competition, Ludwig offers contextualized suggestions for improving the structure, word choice and clarity of your work. In fact, if you can't come up with the right word, just type an asterisk in the space and Ludwig can figure out the best word to make your sentence sing.
And this is no glorified spell-checker either. Ludwig is becoming a regular fixture at institutions like Oxford, Harvard and Stanford, where quality writing is a must.
Ludwig's nuanced algorithms are also a hit with non-English writers, who avoid the awkward prose of less-refined online translation services and can instead see their foreign language writing become a quality English sentence.
A lifetime of access to Ludwig is normally $299, but you can now save $180 off that price with this latest discount, offered now for just $119.

"If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it." — Toni Morrison
Todd Plitt / Contributor
- Morrison was the first African American to win the Nobel Prize in Literature.
- Over her nearly five-decade career, Morrison wrote 11 novels, a libretto and collections of nonfiction, and also worked as an editor who wanted to participate in developing a "canon of black work."
- Morrison's family wrote that they were grateful she had a "long, well lived life."
Though written for his students, the lessons can be applied by any essay writer.
- The best way to improve your thinking is to learn how to write, says Jordan Peterson.
- His 10-step process for writing an essay is time consuming, but the benefits are worth it.
- From the granular to the macro, every facet of writing a solid essay is covered in his template.
Looking up big, fancy words won't make your writing better. But a thesaurus can help – if you use it like this.
- Using a thesaurus to find larger or more impressive words is misguided, says Martin Amis. Instead, use a thesaurus to find words with the perfect rhythm for your sentence.
- For example, the Nabokov novel "Invitation to a Beheading" was originally called – not for very long – "Invitation to an Execution". Nabokov nixed the repetitive suffix.
- A dictionary is also a writer's best friend; looking up words has a rejuvenating effect on your mind, says Amis. "When you look up a word in the dictionary you own it in a way you didn't before. You know what it comes from and you know its exact meaning."
