This is a quick note that will only be important to a few of you, I imagine. As you probably have noticed by now, grammar is not my strongest gift. I sometimes struggle (ofttimes?) to get the words to communicate the thoughts I want to express. I’ve subscribed to Grammarly for a while now, but it’s been hard to access the service when writing on a desktop computer. (Either a windows pc or a Macintosh.) Generally, I had to compose in one program (like Pages) and then copy and paste it into another (Grammarly Desktop), make corrections, and copy the corrected text back into the original document.
It’s a painful workflow and one that I don’t use often.
There’s a new update to Grammarly today that installs it as a service available in pretty much any program that uses text input fields. I’m using it to write this post in my blog editor software called MarsEdit. Grammarly automatically appears and starts fixing things. It’s a treat.
So, if you’re a Grammarly subscriber or have been thinking about it, this latest update is excellent. And I’m as happy to have it because I believe you will be as a reader of my prose…
