Damn You, Auto Correct!


This past weekend I learned I will NEVER attempt to write a novel on my iPhone (never mind the fact that I don’t actually own an iPhone) when I stumbled across Damn You, Auto-Correct! 

I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard. Then again, I often enjoy other people’s embarrassing mistakes. I shouldn't be the only one to make them.

If you’re at work consider yourself warned that now might not be the best time to start reading if you want to keep a low profile.

(AGENT ALERT) -- One of my absolute faves, Jim McCarthy over at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management, is hosting a live online chat, on Thursday (11/18) from 3-4 pm. EST. I’ve been following him on DGLM’s blog for quite a while and he’s a total trip. Jim’s willing to discuss any & all topics short of folks directly pitching their queries/stories to him. 

Should be fun times! I plan on being there. Just have to figure out how to get people to leave me alone at my desk for a full hour!!

Interesting. Thanks for the heads up Tracy!

LOL! Yes your post puts me in mind of a friend who wrote on her creative writing assignment that she 'saw herself as a friction writer'. It raised a few eyebrows! :O)

He sounds like a great resource. Very glad you posted about it.

I haven't read Vampire Academy, but it sounds great. And I hear New Kids and N'Sync are going to be at the American Music Awards (or were?), so this must be flashback time for you!
