    Autocrit is a software that analyzes your work for overused/unnecessary words, cliches, and so on. Won’t take the place of a crit group imo, but makes those passes for your tell words like “that” and “just” a lot easier. You can use the wizard on the site for free with some limitations

    Oh, these are wonderful! I’m really excited to try out the Write Rhymes the next time I’m penning one of my 90s pop song parodies.

      Hi Lori–That’s funny, I just made a note to include Written? Kitten! in my next roundup! I forgot to include it here. I’ve used Write or Die, too, and love it :). Thanks for the reminder–I am collecting these onto the resource page, so I’ll add these two as well.

      Hi Sarah! I had a lot of fun playing with the “911 Writers Block” site, but that might prove more a distraction for me than an actual tool. The word frequency counter seems like it could actually be useful.

      Hmm, I wonder if it will take a 50,000 word book?
