EditMinion: The Robotic Copy Editor

Tired of having your writing club or spouse read the same common mistakes over and over? Try using the EditMinion–the robotic copy editor will spot common mistakes before you send your copy to a real human reader.

Here’s more from the site: “EditMinion is a robotic copy editor to help you refine your writing by finding common mistakes. To get started, paste a chapter of writing into the box below and click Edit! Don’t paste too much or the script will stop responding. This is still very much in Beta and I’ll be adding features as I come up with them. If you have suggestions, tweet @DrWicked or email imp[at]editminion[dot]com. Thanks!”

March is National Novel Editing Month (NaNoEdMo), a time for writers with unpolished manuscripts to clean up their copy–a good opportunity to revisit your National Novel Writing Month work. To celebrate this month of editing, we are sharing an editing tool every day.
