Grammar Checker & Style Editing Tool
« on: August 05, 2019, 12:19:37 PM »
Hi Everyone,

We recently came across a tool that we thought the community would appreciate, it's called Pro Writing Aid, I used their free version the other day to check a piece I was writing and found it to be super helpful in correcting punctuation and sentence structure.

Click here to check it out, let us know what you think!

There's also something called the Hemingway Editor.

I've used it a time or two. My only real complaint is that it treats a conversation much the same as a scientific encyclopedia, meaning it cannot tell what should be slang and what should not. It thinks a chat between two old friends should be English professor correct.

But, as far looking at the descriptive parts of your story, it does a good job of breaking down what you have. It can even show when you're being passive.

It's not perfect by any means, and it really bogs down when you copy and paste thousands and thousands of words, but it is a useful tool.

I am always on the lookout for the perfect writing tool but there is always some flaw. It means two things:

1. Machines can't replace humans because humans understand context.
2. There is no such thing as perfection. You can always nitpick something or the other.
