Today's tip was sent in by children's book writer Carrie A. Pearson. After you check out her tip, please visit her lovely website. Thanks for the tip, Carrie!
This website is helpful for longer works because it counts how many times a certain word shows up in the text you cut and paste. I am always on the lookout for "the" and inactive "to be" verbs. Also, everyone has those words or phrases that are overused. This will ferret them out like a feisty little rat terrier.
