Editing Wizard

 

We all know that editing is a very biiiiig part of the writing process. A couple of weeks ago, one of the blogs I follow, Caribbean Book Blog, wrote a post on an editing wizard called Autocrit. Well, today I tried it out for the first time, and I’m impressed! As a guest I was limited to analyzing only 500 words of my manuscript, but I was able to get results for overused words, sentence variation, and clichés & redundancies. While I may not use every recommendation given, I liked the word overuse section because it really gave me a look at just how many times I was using particular words.

Becoming a member of Autocrit gives more freedoms like analyzing more words at a time and emailing an analyzed report. I’m definitely considering membership for at least a year. Not to say that this wizard can replace a personal editor, but I believe it can be a good addition to analyze my own work as a writer even before the editor sees the completed manuscript. Check it out and tell me what you think!
