Write better. Right now.

here's how it's done

We worked with editors, agents, and bestselling authors to determine key elements of a successful book. Then we researched and categorized millions of published works of fiction and used computer technology to create a benchmark. Every time you use AutoCrit, it automatically suggests improvements in more than twenty different areas. Better yet, those suggestions are based on the ingredients for publishing success used by bestselling authors and trusted by agents, editors, and publishers.

SUGGESTIONS BASED ON YOUR GENRE

AutoCrit understands your genre, something no other manuscript editing software does. The program takes its editorial cues from the novels you want yours to sit next to on bookstore shelves. We sourced data from millions of books in seven different genres including romance, mystery, and young adult. Some automated editors offer canned suggestions that strip your writing of the character inherent in your genre. AutoCrit helps you infuse your manuscript with style and create vibrant prose that connects with your readers.

Your Summary Score

WATCH YOUR SCORE IMPROVE AS YOU EDIT

What’s your score? When you run AutoCrit’s Summary Report on your manuscript, we’ll give you an overall score based on the number of areas the software suggests you should consider revising. The higher the number, the fewer revisions you need to make. As you edit, every time you re-run the Summary Report you’ll see your score climb, and you’ll feel empowered to create your best work.

"No author dislikes to be edited as much as he dislikes not to be published."
– J. Russell Lynes

Identify Dialogue Problems

WRITE AUTHENTIC AND RIVETING DIALOGUE

Nothing pulls us into a story faster than when characters start talking to one another, yet crafting compelling dialogue is an art some writers struggle to master. AutoCrit identifies excess dialogue tags so you can eliminate the he said/she said when your reader already knows who’s talking. The software also calls out adverbs (those pesky -ly words published writers, editors, and agents loathe in excess) in dialogue tags so you can take your prose from purple to polished in one smooth sweep.

Strengthen Your Writing

ELIMINATE COMMON STYLE ERRORS EASILY

First drafts are for getting your ideas down. Revision is for shaping those nascent ideas into potent prose that captivates your readers. AutoCrit’s online book editor highlights style errors that bog down nearly every writer’s early attempts.

CRUSH EXCESS ADVERBS

AutoCrit will show you not only how many adverbs you’ve used, but identify whether you’ve used too many compared to published books in your genre. Is “really” your adverb nemesis? AutoCrit will pinpoint the issue and help you eradicate all those extra “reallys” in one quick pass.

FILTER OUT FILLER WORDS

Are all those “thats” necessary? The editor will ferret out the fluff words cluttering your text. You’ll easily take your manuscript from hard-to-read to clean-and-crisp.

WEED OUT CLICHES

AutoCrit spots clichés so you can make certain your writing is original. If you’ve accidentally defaulted to a phrase that’s been used many times before, the software will identify it so you can keep your prose fresh.

STOP REPEATING YOURSELF

Repetition can be hard for writers and even human editors to spot. AutoCrit searches your manuscript to find areas where you’ve used the same words and phrases too close together so you can weed them out and keep your writing fresh.

Improve Pacing and Momentum

SET THE BEST PACE, RIGHT DOWN TO THE SENTENCE LEVEL

Pacing is tricky. Churn along at breakneck speed, and you exhaust your reader. Take your time, and you risk boring them. Our Pacing and Momentum review identifies long paragraphs so you can trim, revise, and improve clarity. It highlights slower-paced paragraphs, helping you ensure they aren’t placed too close together or showing up right in the middle of action scenes.

AutoCrit will even identify problems at the sentence level. Too many sentences of the same length become boring. The software analyzes the length of every sentence in your text and pintpoints problem areas where you may lose your readers’ attention. A graphical overview helps you make quick adjustments.
