ProWritingAid or Grammarly? Bestselling Author Joanna Penn Compares

Joanna Penn Reviews ProWritingAid

Joanna Penn is an Award-nominated, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of thrillers under the penname J.F.Penn. She also writes non-fiction for authors. Her site, TheCreativePenn.com has been voted in the Top 100 sites for writers by Writer's Digest.

Recently, Joanna did a full review of ProWritingAid. In it, she covered:

  • Why it's worth using an online writing tool as well as professional editors and proofreaders
  • Grammar issues, passive writing
  • Spelling issues – you can choose the country-specific spelling in settings
  • Sentence length, sentence structure, overused words, repeated words, dialogue tags, clichés, and redundancies
  • Fixing curly vs straight quotation marks
  • Thesaurus and Word Explorer — for word nerds (like me!)
  • Integration with Scrivener
  • Emails and website copy within Chrome
  • Why she thinks ProWritingAid is a better tool for writers than Grammarly
