My thoughts on writing tips found online and in published works (with some random thoughts thrown into the mix).

Spell Check Issues

Spell check does not have all the answers

Why you can't rely on grammar checkers

These two examples show exactly why you cannot rely on grammar-checkers and spell-checkers in your software program. A computer is only as good as the person that gives it commands, and even then, that persons cannot predict every situation that can come up in your writing. They can be altered and will skip over words that are technically correct, though you may have misused them or used the wrong version (such as the infamous there, their, and they're).

(I apologize for the extremely short post today, I have a cold that is trying to get the best of me.)
