AutoCrit makes me look better than I deserve and saves me $$
AutoCrit is making me a better, albeit harder working, writer :)) I see it in every category. I write novels on Scrivener running 75 to 100K words. I also write articles for trade journals and have two blogs. AutoCrit makes me look better than I deserve and saves me $$, my editor is good but expensive :))
My manuscript flows better
AutoCrit makes me go back and rethink wording. I edited my work in progress and had a beta reader reread it. She said, "I don't know what you did but it's really great! It seems to flow better or something."
With AutoCrit, I can now focus
AutoCrit forces me to dive in and rethink every paragraph, what I am saying and how I am saying it. Editing is very difficult. I have written 6 books, but this is my first fiction/novel work and fiction is a completely different animal. For a 55k-word book, it's huge. I didn’t know where to begin or what to look for. With AutoCrit, I can now focus—one paragraph at a time—with pointed direction. It’s a slow process, but I am making progress. I believe AutoCrit is making me a better writer!
I'm convinced my work is stronger.
I have to admit, I was skeptical ... and concerned that a formulaic approach could do more harm than good. But, having used Autocrit for the first 5,000 words (so far), and having subsequently read through the result, I'm convinced my work is stronger. I'm impressed. (100,000 words to go.)
AutoCrit takes care of the details
When I’ve done a million revisions and drafts, and my novel has been beta read and edited to perfection, I always have one more step to do before proofreading: AutoCrit. Nothing is more important in my process than AutoCrit. It takes care of all the details my eyes just don’t see anymore. Repetitive words? Check. Passive voice? Check. Too many adverbs? Check. My overabundant use of probably, usually, and definitely? Check, check, check. Each chapter gets the AutoCrit treatment until the words flow and become transparent. I've edited four novels with AutoCrit, and I won’t go without it ever again.
AutoCrit is exactly what I need
AutoCrit is a fabulous product. It enables me to see where I can improve my writing without changing my meaning. It’s exactly what I need at this stage of my book. Thank you! Oh, by the way—I thought I was the adverb queen, but noooooo, I am the queen of “it.”
AutoCrit strikes me as a best-of-breed tool to help authors identify a wide range of mechanics and style issues that can undermine how a manuscript reads and make otherwise good writing look amateurish. I’d recommend it to any writer as a resource to help hone their self-editing skills.
As a new user, I'm impressed.
As a new user, I have to say I’m impressed. AutoCrit has helped me a great deal in the few weeks I’ve been using the program. AutoCrit has been a great help for me to trim the fat from my narrative. It’s like having an editor looking over my shoulder.
AutoCrit makes editing enjoyable
I would no more attempt writing without AutoCrit than I would living without breath. My writing has become sharper and more concise with so much added flavor since I started using this innovative program. As the old commercial stated, “Try it, you’ll like it.” It makes editing so much more enjoyable and will give your manuscript a point of view usually missed by writers. Again, I can’t do without AutoCrit.
AutoCrit finds easily overlooked issues
AutoCrit calls a writer’s attention to word repetitions, clichés, sameness in sentence construction, and many other issues easily overlooked. A useful tool!
Thanks for catching my errors before I made a fool of myself
I thought I was done when I finished writing my book. Boy, was I ever wrong! Thanks to you I've had to rewrite 80 percent of the book, but I’m not complaining—I’m congratulating you for catching my errors before I made a fool of myself. AutoCrit has made me a better writer (but a lousy husband!).
AutoCrit edits better than writer groups.
I've been proud of my tight writing. Editors and writer groups seemed to nitpick my materials. AutoCrit edits better than my writer groups. It notices repetition, weak wording, and dialogue inconsistencies. I purchased a subscription today and already feel my writing getting tighter. It’s given me newfound direction for self-editing!
AutoCrit helped me polish my book until it sparkled.
I first purchased a membership to AutoCrit in 2009, when I was shopping around my first eBook in hopes of finding a publisher. In no time, I was able to place that story and start another one. Now I have more than 70 eBooks for sale with various publishers, and just about every time I’m assigned an editor, he or she compliments me on my crisp text and lack of repeated words, dull verbs, and other common problems. I believe I have AutoCrit to thank for this! It saves time and points out things I just wouldn't notice on my own when I’m in the heat of the creative process. Now I play a kind of game, trying to write so that AutoCrit finds fewer and fewer issues to flag each time I use it. It has definitely made me a better writer and a more careful editor.
AutoCrit is the best online software
AutoCrit is simply the best editing software on the planet! It’s amazing how effortless the tool makes the revision process for fiction writers. I genuinely think this is the best online software for writers at any stage in their career.
AutoCrit has become an invaluable tool.
In one week, AutoCrit has become an invaluable tool. It has helped me identify several areas where my writing was subpar and in need of improvement. It’s like having an editor looking over my shoulder as I write.
A tool no writer should be without.
I just wanted to let you know how helpful this site has been in editing my novel—and I just joined the site! I would never have picked up some of the problems in my manuscript without this service. I've already made changes that have taken it to the next level. This is a tool no writer should be without. So glad I found it!
I love being able to spot clichés
Avoiding the passive voice spices up the pace of my novel. I love being able to spot clichés. I’ve found it works best for me one chapter at a time, editing for each feature separately.
The first time I ran text through it, it was almost like seeing the manuscript for the first time. I’m now able to make my story more vibrant and pick it up in spots where it slows down. Thanks, AutoCrit!
Write clearly and concisely
I am learning to write more clearly and concisely with AutoCrit.
AutoCrit is the crit partner I never had
AutoCrit eliminates “lazy eye,” as I like to call it—the tendency to look right past obvious issues in the manuscript. It’s the crit partner I've never had!
