I believe publishing something on the public sphere and finding out that there was a typo or grammar mistake somewhere after its publication can be the bane of every writer’s or blogger’s existence. And while we tend to depend on our somewhat trustworthy command of the language or at the very least, spell and grammar check on whatever platform we’re using, there are always those few kinks that end up falling through the sieve.
Enter Grammarly, an online text review service.
I know some of us know Grammarly as the people behind those grammar and English jokes we see on Facebook, but the wonderful people there have given me an opportunity to use their premium services, so here’s a quick summary of what it was like.
This, however, was just a basic demonstration on what Grammarly can do. If you have a paid account with them, they have experts and reviewers who go beyond pure copy-editing and look into the structure of your pieces. If you love Grammarly and would like to show your appreciation, stand to win a $100 Amazon gift card by giving a funny/ witty reason for using Grammarly and their services.
In other news though, it’s two weeks into Nanowrimo. While I’m falling behind and trying to catch up, try taking a look at Grammarly’s #GrammoWrimo, which is by far, one of the most interesting projects I’ve seen.
I do hope to see what else Grammarly provides for first drafts and texts, perhaps post-Nanowrimo?
