Honestly, no.  I write the way I talk ... conversationally ... just as you have in the post.  I do use spell check ... and that works well for me ... most of the time 

Thank you for sharing this with the AR community.

I've been using the free version of Grammarly but this looks like a little more robust alternative.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I write over 100,000 words per week and I only get 69% of them correct. How do I know that? I use Grammarly. Far and away the best writing improvement service I have ever come across. 

This looks pretty cool too. Good luck Rainers.

I prefer to write as I speak.  Isn't always the prettiest and I have to be careful because I use jargon and words not everyone will like, but I find it's more authentic.  I am who I am, regardless if it's on the phone, in person or in print.

I don't ever depend on these kinds of programs... I know my grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. Often they are not correct. And I can proof read with the best of them.
