Cute cat writing on a small chalkboard surrounded by adorable animalsHello SErs! It’s Friiiiddddaaayyy!!! (Ahem, apologies. I’ll try and settle myself.)

How ‘Pro Writing Aid’ makes Editing Easier

Another good self-editing tool with a free and paid version! 😉

Jed Herne: Writer

Editing transforms crappy first drafts into polished stories. To be a good writer, you must be a good editor. I’ve written extensively about how to edit your story, but today, we’re doing something different. Today, I’ll show you a program that does the editing for you. 

It’s called Pro Writing Aid.

Since I brought Pro Writing Aid seven months ago, it’s become essential to my editing process. ProWritingAid is a piece of automatic editing software. No, it won’t write your story, but it will plug into Word and run over 20 types of reports on your writing.

The Benefits of Writing the Static Scene

A Writer's Path

by Ian J. Miller

Why have a static scene, and what do you put in it? The most obvious reason is to get an emotional response, so I thought that I should start this by asking, what piece of writing has impressed me the most on that plane?

One scene came to mind before all others, a short scene from “Anna Karenina”, and one that I rather fancy most will have considered padding, the sort of scene the average editor would delete for not moving the story onwards, yet I remember it over 40 years after reading it.
