Weekly writing check-in: that’s a lot of words

For the most part, I am making sense of all my squiggles.

I’m currently working in Word with Grammarly opened in the side panel. This is something new. In the past, I’ve completed my edits and then would open Grammarly to pick up on anything I might have missed.

Note: this is not the way I draft anything. When I draft, spellcheck, grammar checks, everything is off, off, off.

But I find Grammarly a bit tedious. There are any number of things I simply skip (and you should too). And I wasn’t looking forward to running a check after I was all done with the edits. So? Two for one!

It seems to be working. The edits may be a bit slower, but that’s not a bad thing.

Also, I’m pretty sure the only reason Grammarly has “checked” +300,000 words is it runs the check each time I open the manuscript or wake my desktop. I look far more productive than I actually am.
