Words to avoid if possible:

These are flat or dirty words that don't carry much meaning and slow the reader down. Your story will benefit, if these are omitted, of course not in every case.

After Lucifer fought God, God permitted Lucifer to go and test His faithful children even unto the point of death. Lucifer is free to tempt God’s faithful Christians to sin, especially the Cleanliness family.
Sam Cleanliness is God’s Ordained One. God chose him to slay all the demons. The Fallen Angels (demons) are called the Fallen and the Reborn. Victory Cleanliness is a Chosen One and Sam’s little cousin. They usually work... Show more

I wrote a story about the Fallen Angels as the ones posing as Aliens, so check it out to see what I found in my research. I also wrote a spoof story about an alien visiting earth and what he saw while here.

Writers are wordsmithers. We have a whole dictionary of words to use, use them. Instead of saying walk, say stroll, amble, tiptoe, tromping, meandering, or bounding. These words will also give imagery to your writing.

Excellent but don't forget to be aware of who your target audience is or you might alienate them with your sophisticated language. Keep it relevant.

Never thought about it like that Jordan.
Thanks for sharing that.

I have edited a friend's short story which he then submitted to his college's magazine, and it was one of two short stories to be published in 2017.

As a published author, I wished to have had the opportunity to have a second, or even a third, pair of trained eyes to look over my... Show more

Welcome to BookRix, Jordan. It sounds like you will be a welcome addition to our membership and will fit in well with our group of serious writers. Of course we have the usual scourge of young social misfits who frequent the site thinking we are like Facebook but do not judge us by them, please.

anytime Jordan, just shoot it and I'll have a look at it.

Really in need of an editor and proofreader!!! By: Rookie Burwick

Important Post

Hello,

My name's Rookie Burwick, and I have written 3 chapters of my novel. I really do want to get these chapters completely proofread and edited before I go on. Now, I haven't gotten published yet, and the only money I make I put toward keeping me and my family afloat, thus I cannot provide payment. I know most editors/proofreaders require payment, so it's going to be tough for me, I'm well aware.

Please do message me for... Show more
