Just before I handed in my 3rd Naughty List novel, the most horrible thing ever happened. My spell check stopped working. I had to type the last 40 pages of my manuscript without squiggly lines. Without a way to make sure I spelled "science" right. And then I realized... my computer has made me stupid.
I found myself googling the simplest words--I'd lost all confidence! I had to comb through the book and find places where I wrote "her" instead of "here". I even spelled my character's name wrong!!!!!
Luckily I still managed to get it done and turned it (thank you, twittercation). But wow. I might have to start using my kid's 3rd grade spelling guide.
Am I the only writer that can't spell??
