You have my Word

This is a result of my continuing battle with word processors. All through collage, I suffered a false sense of security that I was well looked after. Its only after my first stint in the press that this realization had dawned upon me. I had to get my ax right, or my dreams of writing adds would reach a dead end.

Then began the long battle one of my short comings. Of being vary dependant on spellcheck on MS Word. And by the looks of it, my efforts have not gone in vein. This effort, for instance, was typed while completely overlooking what MS Word had to say, about my spelling; or even my grammar. And you could'n spot one period misplaced, could you?

Nice!!! But you ought to consider ditching MS Word for a typesetter like LaTeX for professional work!! (That coming from an MS employee says a lot!! We use LaTeX internally for writing papers)

Dude!! Ssup!!

I have nothing against any of these word processors, really! Nothing Personal!! I just think I don't need any of them. MS Word and I have reconciled now!
