Writing Information This page will be a work-in-progress for some time, but I will add information regularly.

Writing Software

Tired of rejections? Wondering how to improve? Nowadays there is advanced software that will "read" your writing and analyze it for common problems, and even graph the results, provide reports, and show you how your writing compares to thousands of other writers. I use this type of software - ProWritingAid, and highly recommend it.
