Improve your writing’s style and grammar with this web tool…


A web-based companion to Write or Die, EditMinion is similar to After the Deadline. This writer’s companion doesn’t track your work, though. Rather, it provides an editing box for you to cut and paste work for immediate analysis and grading.

Adverbs, clichés, weak phrasing, repetitive usage and more are all laid bare for the author to see, making initial edit passes quick, if not painless.

EditMinion is also free, so the only thing you have to lose is your dignity when a beloved scene fails to make the grade. At least there are no witnesses.

Note. The Download button takes you to the vendor’s site, where you can use the latest version of this web-based software.

Your style is old-fashioned, Mr Dickens. You might want to make some changes... unless, of course, you really want people to think you wrote this in the 1840s.
