Do you use the spellcheck?

by juliecround

You would think, after four proof reads, my ‘Never’ book would be perfect – but it isn’t.
I was reading the final draft prior to printing and found a spelling mistake.
As a former English teacher I was very annoyed at myself, although pleased that I had spotted it.
I wondered why I didn’t spellcheck the whole manuscript and then I remembered what happens – the computer picks out all the names and nouns that it does not recognise. It isn’t that I don’t use it. If I am unsure of a word I check it but usually I rely on my own memory.
I never think of checking emails, although I have been known to use it for competition entries.
I’ll see what else I find over the weekend. It’s all coming together!
