Shine some light on your writing with Grammarly

So, I've finally started using Grammarly, to check grammar, wordiness, and more, in all of my writing. I've avoided using it for a very long time, in fact, for exactly five years, because I believed I did not need a grammar checker in my life. But, I'm slowly coming around to seeing its benefits in my work. For instance, I do a lot of my writing in the free writing method, then go back in and tidy things up to correct grammar and tighten style. Actually, I was very pleasantly surprised to see that Grammarly corrects most of the proofreading I would usually need to do.

One of the things I especially like about Grammarly is its realtime Artificial Intelligence response to what I'm typing. It's as if I have an in-person editor next to me, correcting me gently every time I type an incorrect word or phrase or participle.

My favorites are those fashioned from a hodgepodge of materials, but I've seen some rather impressive use of shipping containers, derelict vans, old galvanize, and pieces of restored wood. I also watch TV shows where homeowners share their construction experiences and decisions to live the tiny house lifestyle. And although I know they can't hear me, I still shout at their backs, "I want one too!" as they show off their hobbit bathrooms.

Most of all I watch with admiration as people slim their existence down to 12 personal items, and move into a home as small as 500 square feet. To some others, this move may look like total insanity, but those making the shift believe it's the most freeing thing that they could do. They believe they are ridding themselves of the unnecessary tr…
