Writing 101: why you need spell check

For everyone out there who wants to take up writing as a hobby or as a serious, pseudo-legit profession, I've (unintentionally) started an online university (sort of) which (sort of) teaches just one (sarcasm-based) class: Writing 101.

If you're new here you might want to check out my first Writing 101 session, in which we got started with a discussion about The Process of writing. But if you've already absorbed that and passed the final (which, as I recall, required you to send me a double batch of brownies, but I might be completely making that up because I'm hungry), you've now arrived at lesson two: why you need spell check.

Basically, this session teaches the benefits of not checking your own spelling. For example, not checking it leaves you more time to write, plus, knowing how to spell is boring.

I might have had a little too much fun with this . . . Pop over to my classroom at In The Powder Room and see if you can tell whether or not I used spell check - then tell me your spell check horror stories, like that time you sent out resumes proudly announcing your degree in "Pubic Relations."
