What is AutoCrit?

AutoCrit is an online book editing platform dedicated to helping writers make quick and impactful improvements to their writing style, get their manuscripts ready to publish, and become successful authors.

Covering both fiction and non-fiction writing, AutoCrit’s interactive book editor goes far beyond the capabilities of a standard grammar checker or spell checker.

Beyond those more simple functions, AutoCrit also identifies problems that prevent readers from enjoying your books, such as:

  • Words that pad out or weaken your writing, for example too many occurrences of that or it or LY-adverbs.
  • Noticeable or annoying repetition of the same or similar words.
  • Sentences that lack variety due to similar lengths.
  • Overuse of unnecessary dialogue tags such as “she muttered.”
  • Slow or uneven pacing that may lead to readers becoming bored at specific points of your book.
  • Areas where your storytelling isn’t as involving as it could be.
  • Accidental or unintended use of passive voice.

Spreading this insight across more than 20 individual and interactive reports, the AutoCrit book editor allows writers to shine an instant spotlight on potential problems through easy-to-spot highlights and additional explanation of why certain edits matter.
