George and the Dragon has been a complete work for at least year. However, I recently discovered ProWritingAid.com.
I know this will come across like an advert but I can't stress how good this tool is.
For ANY writer who is serious about writing ProWritingAid is an invaluable tool. Once you've created yourself a log in it will happily analyze large sections of writing. I'm not sure on the maximum size for a free account by my chapters are, on average, 3,500 words long and it deals with them without a problem.*
Once it has analyzed your text it provides you with a very comprehensive report.
- Overuse of common words such as: Could, Feel/Feeling/Felt, Initial-ing, Just/Then and Knew/Know to name but a few of the words it will highlight.
- Sentence Length
- Writing Style
And much more besides. It has helped me to improve the way George and the Dragon is written and hopefully that will make it a better reading experience.
I will never publish a book without first editing it with Pro Writing Aid.
*They've now placed a 3,000 word limit on their free accounts but that's still pretty decent as limits go.
