Another thought – run a section through autocrit (http://www.autocrit.com). This gives you an idea of: repeated words and phrases, overuse of pronouns, adverbs, cliches, and the like. I used this when I first started revising my work to get a sense of “bad” writing patterns. It was helpful to me to se those patterns, which I now avoid in the first or second draft (rather than the umpteenth version). But I would be curious to see how a “real” published author fares with this tool. Peace, Linda
