Must be doing something right …

Editors fine-tune your writing.

Tony Berry, Author - writer of crime fiction featuring sleuth Bromo Perkins, and the occasional memoir

An author who has been using a software program to “edit” her novel has now accepted my quote to complete the job.

As she commented in her email confirming the arrangement:

Although ProWritingAid has trained me to write better English, it cannot –

  • make words flow like you can
  • give feedback
  • pick up loopholes
  • get involved in the story

The program is not one hundred per cent accurate. I often find mistakes it has missed.  It is not creative like you. And, it doesn’t have a heart…  unable to “feel” what the reader feels.

Heartening words indeed. And perhaps something needing to be noted by all writers who reckon they don’t need the human touch to fine-tune their work.
