This report helps you spot commonly overused words and sentence constructions that weaken your manuscript, including generic descriptions, passive voice, adverbs, and more.
The the analysis sidebar shows you the number of words found in a category and recommendations for improvement. It is important to remember that this is a suggestion only and not a hard number.
We compare your manuscript to samples of successful published fiction, including mass market paperbacks and bestsellers. If the number of overused words in your manuscript exceeds the average found in those published works, we’ll highlight the problem in your manuscript for quick analysis and editing.
For example, published fiction typically has about 10 adverbs per 1,000 words. If your manuscript has 30 adverbs per 1,000 words, AutoCrit will suggest that you remove about 20 of those.
The words we look for fall into several categories. For more information on each of these writing pitfalls, click the category below.
While using any word is fine in moderation, overusing a particular word or sentence structure can sap the energy from your writing. Make sure every word earns its place on the page.
