Writers Toolbox

I thought I would make a quick post on some tools that can assist an author with their writing.

The AutoCrit Editing Wizard finds hundreds of problems instantly - even things that you and your critique partners have missed. The Wizard identifies slow pacing, overused words, cliches and many more problems typical of early drafts.

Grammarly will analyze your document in real time for over 150 points of grammar, plagiarism, word choice and much more. Also has a Microsoft Word Plugin which works a treat.

Perfect your English writing with the most advanced Spelling, Grammar Checker, Punctuation, Style and Structure checkers. Full-text translation & multilingual dictionary.  Learn from your mistakes with error-explanation tool.

I personally use all three in combination.  White Smoke while writing.  Paragraph by Paragraph.  AutoCrit to analyse a completed chapter.  Finally I run the results of that through Grammarly in a blank word document.
