This is such a simple thing you probably already know it but just in case there is one more wannabe article writer or eBook author like me here, I want to share this.
I've been told by others that some of my posts are good or at least OK.
Personally I don't have any problem writing an acceptable post here on this forum.
When It comes to writing articles I've also been told I do pretty good. At least by some of the people I've Ghostwritten for.
However although some of the posts I've written are longer than some articles I labor over my articles a lot more than I labor over my posts.
I've always taken for granted that articles were harder to write than posts and that was the reason but it's not the reason at all. The real reason knocked my socks off and gave me great inspiration to crank out 6, 500+ words articles in less than an hour.
OK, here is what I accidentally discovered, here is what was in front of me all the time that I just stumbled onto.
I was using a friends computer to write an article. I got the article written in about 10 minutes instead of my usual hour (I told you I was slow). Anyway, I was pretty impressed with my self but when I asked my friend to look at my article he said, "It's a nice article but your spelling is horrible."
"My spelling," I challenged,"Is perfect. Spell check didn't find one problem."
My friend said, "I have spell check turned off."
Upon running spell check I found I had a LOT of errors. I corrected them in a matter of a few seconds and now my article was perfect.
Then it hit me. When I write a post I use Google Spell Check to check it after it is done. However, when I'm writing an eBook or an Article spell check nags me every time I make a mistake. I stop and correct the error and lose my train of thought and rev up to speed again only to be stopped by the darn spell check nag.
Turning off spell check lets me be creative and get all my words down without the distraction of stopping several times during the creative process to make corrections.
Yes, turning off my Spell Check really helped me. I hope this can help at least one other Warrior.
