You need to keep on writing if you want to be a better writer. But do you think if we can improve our writing skills by just writing more? Don’t we need to learn a few things? When I googled, I was quite amused by how many online tools for writers are available. The tools are to nag us to write, track our writing habits, give feedback on our writings, let us connect with other writers, and so on.
Do you have any favorite editor tools? If you do, please share!

Here are some my random picks.
Hemingway Editor
I tested the online free version. There is a paid downloadable app ($20), too. Hemingway Editor evaluates a piece of writing for clarity and simplicity. It calculates readability, highlighting your writing with different colors.
An interesting feature for me was that it detected adverbs and passive voice. Why adverbs and passive voice? This is because they can weaken your message. I still think that human proofreading is better, but it definitely made me think twice about what I tried to say.

I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m intrigued by the concept of the website. Wattpad is an online community of writers and readers who work together to build better content. If you want some feedback for your work, this site may be your solution. For fiction writers, it could be your playground. They offer writing contests, too.

Now that you have tools, do you need a motivation to write? What about the 2019 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards Competition?
