An author who has been using a software program to “edit” her novel has now accepted my quote to complete the job. As she commented in her email confirming the arrangement:
Although ProWritingAid has trained me to write better English, it cannot –
- make words flow like you can
- give feedback
- pick up loopholes
- get involved in the story
The program is not one hundred per cent accurate. I often find mistakes it has missed. It is not creative like you. And, it doesn’t have a heart… unable to “feel” what the reader feels.
Heartening words indeed. And perhaps something needing to be noted by all writers who reckon they don’t need the human touch to fine-tune their work.
