Remember Write or Die? Well Dr Wicked has made another online tool for writers called the “Edit Minion”.
“EditMinion helps you refine your writing by searching your text for some common grammatical, spelling and diction mistakes that spellcheck won’t catch. It looks for adverbs, bad dialogue attribution, commonly misspelled words and ending a sentence with a preposition. It will also count how many times a given type of mistake is found.
It’s obviously no replacement for a human copy-editor but it will give you an idea of what areas you might need to focus on revising in your writing.”
The Bookshelf Muse is a wonderful blog that has many resources for writers. My particular favorites (listed on the sidebar) are the Character Traits Thesaurus, Emotion Thesaurus, Setting Thesaurus, Weather &amp;amp; Earthly Phenomena Thesaurus, Color textures and Shapes Thesaurus, and Symbolism Thesaurus.
The amounts of things I’ve learned from this blog since I’ve found are phenomenal.Aside from the Thesaurus’, just going through their regular posts you’ll learn so many great tips about writing. You can tell that the people who run the blog really take their time with each and every post that they make. It truly is amazing.
I have it first on my Favorites Bar if that tells you how much I adore this blog. :)
