Write • Edit • Run • Repeat

Must be doing something right …

error-in-english-essay-pictures_csp16882487 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.
