Last week, I introduced you to the AUTOCRIT online editing program. I hope you have had a chance to try it out for yourself and see how it might enhance your writing.
This week, I used a free trial on PROWRITINGAID. I found that it included many of the same features as Autocrit, but truthfully I didn’t find it to be as user-friendly, nor could I find a HELP button or figure out how to SAVE my material. (I am sure these things exist, so if you take a look at it, please share these two vital pieces of information with me…)
ProWritingAid offers a 14-Day free trial and I don’t want to fail to mention that the price—only $40 per year—is far less expensive than Autocrit.
I would suggest you opt for a free trial for both of these programs and determine for yourself which meets your needs and budget. Whichever one you choose, it will be a good addition to your writing arsenal. If you’ve been writing for less than five years, using one of these is essential. If you have been writing for longer than that, I still think you will find it cuts your self-editing time at least in half. You can devote the time you save toward the creative side of writing!!!
