NOTE: I used Grammarly to grammar check this post because my first creative writing teacher told the class that I was a primitive ‘punctuator’.”
Alliteration. Sometimes I sits, sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I sits and play Russian solitaire. Sometimes I write, or edit, and sometimes I’m nauseated. Not generally from the writing, but I guess because of diabetes and the medicine. Only seems to happen in the morning around 9ish. I’m nauseous right now.
I should go eat some carbohydrates, but I want to finish this post. I rarely post anymore. I do want to give a shout out to author Charles Yallowitz and his Beginning of a Hero & Prodigy of Rainbow Tower. So cool to see him getting success with self-publishing. Stop by and say hey to Charles.
What’s the point of this post? Today I need to chronicle my progress for my history purposes. I’m working toward a quality version of my first three chapters that I can submit to this independent press that showed some interest in the story. I’ve got a clean chapters 1 and 2 and am one edit into chapter 3. I actually am a decent poetry/lyrics self-editor, but I’ve been a lousy prose editor. I’m getting better at editing, I think.
One of the tools I use for editing is a grammar checker. I typically use Ginger, but today I’m using Grammarly (online proofreader). My first sentence is deliberately bad grammar, and the checker complained about it. But…it’s my license. On-line grammar checkers are getting better. After I have finished running this post through, I’m gonna run my first three chapters through. I’ll tell you about that in another post.
But, now, I need to eat something.
