What are Comment Preferences?

 

WriteLab's Comments suggest ways to improve your writing.

We have two sorts of Comments, Direct and Guiding, and we've carefully selected a mixture of them for you to work with. But if you prefer Direct over Guiding, or vice versa, you can adjust your preferences so you receive more of those types of Comments.


Direct Comments

Our Direct comments tell you what to do. If you're working under a deadline or don't have time to evaluate suggestions, these may be for you.

Example

Sentence:

"But the results weren't actually conclusive."

Direct Comment:

"If your sentence makes sense without actually, remove it."

 

Guiding Comments

If you don't want WriteLab telling you what to do, try our Guiding comments. Instead of correcting you, these Comments simply point out your options and leave the decision up to you.

Example

Sentence:

"But the results weren't actually conclusive."

Guiding Comment:

"Try reading this sentence with and without actually. Which version do you prefer? Removing actually would make your sentence more concise, but may impact your meaning."
