ProWritingAid vs. Grammarly for Authors: A Published Author’s Take

As a fellow published author, I can break down the pros and cons of ProWritingAid and Grammarly to help you decide which is better for your needs. Here’s a comparison focusing on features helpful to writers and cost:

Helpfulness for Authors
  • Grammar and Mechanics: Both catch typos, grammatical errors, and offer suggestions for clarity. Grammarly might have a slight edge in accuracy, but it’s a close call.
  • Style and Readability: ProWritingAid shines here with reports on overused words, cliches, sentence length variations, and a “Readability Score”. It helps you write with variety and keep your audience engaged.
  • Genre-Specific Checks: ProWritingAid offers reports for dialogue checks, passive voice overuse, and even clichés specific to fiction genres. This is a big win for fiction writers.
  • Rephrasing and Tone: Both offer suggestions, but Grammarly excels with its one-click tone adjustment feature. This is handy for quickly shifting the formality or mood of your writing.

Book Review of Identity by Nora Roberts

Book Review of Identity by Nora Roberts

Book Review of Identity by Nora Roberts – I recently took some time out during spring break to read a book. Yes, I was able to curl up with my favorite beverage, and a few snacks, so I could read one of my favorite authors’ latest books. Or, I should say it is new to me as I have been on a major dry spell when it comes to reading simply for enjoyment. Identity was published last year so I am not too behind I guess. Check out Nora’s website for all the books she has published and what is coming out next: https://noraroberts.com/

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Theodosia Benton went to school in Australia to become a lawyer. Halfway through she drops out of school and runs to her brother in America. What she really wants to do is become a published author. She has a burning desire to create wonderful stories and get a traditional publishing contract. Her brother, already a prominent attorney and a partner in a Kansas law firm, wants her to have her dreams and agrees to allow her to live with him while she writes her first book. She devotes the next six months to doing just that. She hangs at at the local coffee/bar down the street from their house, meets published author who takes her under his wing. He doesn’t talk about his personal life only about the writing and helps her develop her story. When she figures out he is a ‘famous’ author she asked him to help her get an agent.

Theo is so excited about her writing coming togeher, her budding relationship with a published author and the friends she has made while living with her brother. However, all of that is about the change because in the background there is a web of lies surrounding them and their friends. The spark happens when Theo finds her author friend murdered. The actiion, suspense, and intrigue just keeps going from there.

I thought the action and intrique, twists and turns within the story were excellent. I read the entire book in one night and hope you will purchase a copy and read it as well.

A Peek into 2024

A Peek into 2024

A Peek into 2024 and some of the upcoming programs we are creating, updating, and revamping for our customers as well as our fellow writers out there. This is going to be the year of informative, fun and, we hope, bigger participation in our programs. The more we all learn about our crafts the better writers and providers we will become. Then too, the more we share, the bigger and better things we can all accomplish. Since I have recently re-enrolled in college to finish one of my lifelong dreams of getting a master’s degree and perhaps even my Ph.D. in Business Communications and Media, my attention may be spread a little thin. However, it is also going to give me some new material to share. So stay tuned for more posts and videos about that.
