So, exactly HOW new do you have to be at writing to have JUST discovered Grammerly, yet still feel the NEED to tell a writer’s group you belong to that using it is lazy? That writers should just pick up a book or a dictionary? (Shall we tell them about Pro-writing Aid, Scrivener and the other dozen-odd programs that give writers a hand?)
Thank you, random newbie writer; I really needed a laugh today!
Mostly, because I’m still processing events from this weekend, and I wish I could say I was surprised, but it feels like I’ve been watching this happen in slow motion for a very long time. So many warnings were ignored by those who needed to listen. (Will they listen now?) I also really, really wish I believed this would be the last incident. My fears tell me the worst is yet to come.
As for my editing/revision adventure, I have tightened up the first chapter in the WIP, and already foresee things in later chapters that will get the CHOP. I doubt there will be only one pass through the whole thing. I haven’t really started incorporating the notes, yet, plus there will be a round of text-to-talk, and a round of Grammerly or one of the other aids. Once that is finished, I will either start seeking an agent or small press, or take the chance on self publishing. The plot thickens (hopefully).
Happy writing, y’all!
