The Movie and Book Writing Thread

It's not in all reality a 'test'.  That was just a joke.  It's actually professional level editing for free, and not just of grammar or spelling, but of the actual structure of the piece.  And if you're planning to do something with your writing, it's worth its weight in gold.  Once you submit your writing- to a publisher, a contest, or even on your blog- that editing is going to make all the difference.

I've continued to write, since authoring Kyrathaba Rising in 2013. Three more books, each under a different pseudonym. My average income from Kindle/Audible over the past six months is about $115 per month. So it's fun-money. I play with it.

Nothing in the works right now, so if anyone has a co-authorship idea or some group writing project, I'd like to hear about it.

Here's a little script that'll run in the background and correct up to 4500 common mistakes, AS YOU MAKE THEM, in whatever editor you're typing...


I broadly agree on the problems of redundancy, but it might be a little different about visual ones such as "black colored shirt", because sometimes that can give a listener a useful added second to process the visual cue.

I also wonder how you can completely remove "suddenly" if that's an aspect of the story. You're reading this post, when


Suddenly Bette Midler appears!
