This is quite an old blog that I found on Wasted Ink but I thought I’d share it with you as it references AutoCrit. This is powerful editing tool which won’t tell you what changes to make, but will give you a good overview of overused words, grammar, adverbs etc. It also provides you with a comparison of your style and structure compared to your target genre. I’m not saying this is the best tool and no replacement for a real human Editor, but as an extra tool in your editing arsenal it’s not bad. There is currently a Black Friday offer running (into this weekend) which means you can pick up the professional subscription for around $50 for the year – or around £35. It’s an online tool rather than an Office add on but unlike many online tools there are no limits to the size of the document or how much you can check at a time. Worth a look at this blog this post and doing some comparison shopping!
