Wednesday Writing with 2 Felines ~ Writing Apps

This is a very serious face. Or a disturbed one. Or annoyed. I'll vote for annoyed. This feline does not like to be dressed up.


I found two fun, writing apps! Seriously, they could be addicting. I also am adding my favorite editing tool. I use it ALL the time. It helps me see my manuscript differently and I feel, helps me write better.

The Writer's Diet Test

"Is your work flabby or fit?"

When I plugged in my first chapter, this is what the test told me:


LEAN


My writing is LEAN! Which means CLEAN! The scale goes from LEAN to HEART ATTACK, depending on how many adverbs, prepositions, etc are in the chapter.


AutoCrit

"Manuscript software for fiction writers"

You can use this for free but can only have a hundred words or so. You can buy different packages, too. I like the unlimited usage, especially when I'm in the final edits of the story. I use this one a ton! I love it.

Wednesday Writing with 2 Felines

I often wonder what pets think of us.
"I acknowledge that it is debasing for a human to pick me up. I found the perfect spot to sleep and this one picked me up and I'm pretty sure is going to throw me into the garage. Again. So annoying."

Hey! Why don't you give this photo a caption??


When you get your book published, who do you want to acknowledge? Or if you have a book out, why did you write the acknowledgments and why?

Write the acknowledgments page that will be placed in your first (next?) published book, thanking all the people who have helped you along the way.
