  • Generic Company Place Holder Edit Minion

A Web-based companion to Write or Die, EditMinion is similar to After the Deadline. This writer's companion doesn't track your work, though. Rather, it provides an editing box for you to cut and paste work for immediate analysis and grading.

Well, Mr. Dickens, let's see how this story looks to readers of Christmas present.

Adverbs, clichés, weak phrasing, repetitive usage and more are all laid bare for the author to see, making initial edit passes quick, if not painless.

Your style is old-fashioned, Mr. Dickens. You might want to make some changes...unless, of course, you really want people to think you wrote this in the 1840s.

EditMinion is also free, so the only thing you have to lose is your dignity when a beloved scene fails to make the grade. At least there are no witnesses.
