I'm new to writing fiction. I'm using a computer package (Papyrus) as a word processor and I have been using the Readability function. The readability highlights a paragraph in different colours from red (highly technical) to dark blue/purple (childlike level of reading ability).
I'm writing a piece of fiction aimed at adults. But the readability is highlighting a lot of my writing as green or blue, which indicates the readability is suitable for young adults. Is this OK or could it mean that I'm "dumbing down" a bit and making it a bit too easy to read for the intended audience?
