I have written and blogged since 2002, yet it never occurred to me until a few months ago, when a friend suggested it, that MS Word could do wonders for my grammar and punctuation.
Up until fall 2010 I only had MS Word 2003 on my computer and rarely used it; then I took a series of computer classes to learn 2007, and my eyes were opened up, slowly, to new possibilities. Then a broken ankle and other distractions came along and plans to put into practice what I’d learned went out the window for a year.
It has taken focus, concentration and determination to get into the habit of writing my blog posts first in MS Word. Old habits die hard, very hard.
