Living in a fast-paced world means that we're expected to produce more content in the same amount of time as people in the past have. Sometimes, even the most experienced writers have typos. It may be viewed as unprofessional but everyone is human and we all can only work so fast and so well.
I recently have added a new app to my computer which has helped me out so much-- Grammarly. Yes, you have probably watched the commercials, but have you downloaded it yourself?
I usually do not write articles involving a specific app or website, but like my previous article on Skillshare, I felt an article about Grammarly was worthwhile.
You may wonder why I think it is awesome, but it really just comes down to the basics that it not only tells me what I wrote is incorrect, but also teaches you why it is incorrect.
I think as a society, we are so used to the red line underneath a Word doc and just allow the change to be made without much thought, but what happened to learning why something was wrong and keeping that information stashed away for later use?
Maybe I am just inquisitive by nature, but if I don't know why something is wrong I need to figure it out. Grammarly has so many functions to do this, to correct you as you type so you aren't missing obvious mistakes and has an entire website dedicated to making sure you writing is correct and that you continuously improve.
Next time you have an article you need to write quickly, pop on over to Grammarly and download their app to your computer. If you have other pieces of paper to work on, a resume that needs to be reviewed or an important document you need to send to your boss, please use Grammarly to avoid basic mistakes and a lot of embarrassment.
Let me know if you decide to download Grammarly and tell me what you think!
