Hello, hello! It’s another Writer Vs. Spellchecker! And there are THREE new characters!
Autocorrect: Spellchecker’s other comrade. Says everything robotically, doesn’t know what it’s doing.
The Pit of Indecisiveness: *shows up whenever the WIPs are around*
WIPs: My stories.
(I made this one up; it didn’t actually happen to me. It was in response to some autocorrect troubles some of the other ladies were having)
Writer: They lived happily ever-
Writer: No, it’s lived.
Writer: *headdesk* SPELLCHECKER!!
Spellchecker: What did I do this time?
Writer: GET AUTOCORRECT OUT OF HERE, I’M TRYING TO WRITE!
Writer: Why, you little…*tosses Autocorrect out the door*
Writer: *writing* “-because we specifically instructed those we’ve already told-“
Spellchecker: *inserts comma between ‘those’ and ‘we’ve’*
Writer: Yeah, no. *hits ignore*
