AutoCrit

Postby nightlock » Sat Mar 19, 2011 1:27 pm

I recently stumbled upon a website that (for a fee ofcourse) could analyse your text and give suggestions on a number of technical issues such as overused words, cliche's, redundancies and even the infamous pacing.

The free demo wizard doesn't really do too much so I couldn't really figure out if the complete wizard is worth the 47 dollar per year fee. Does anyone here have any experience working with autocrit.com and if so what are your experiences?

If not, what do you guys think about the program? Could it help?

I don't, but when I had to use an automated system for a college class I thought it was dreadful. The feedback it gave was not helpful at all.

Having others review your work and give you feedback is infinitely more useful than anything a computer is going to tell you.

While that would be my first choice, I don't know anyone around here(Holland) who's English is better than mine AND knows something about writing. The alternative would be posting everything on the forum and I doubt that's a good idea.

Would there be an English Major or professor at a university there, or advanced school, who would do it for a fee?
