Tech Tricks for Writers: Autocorrect

Here’s a fun tech trick for writers.

Have you ever gotten really frustrated with autocorrect? Of course you have.

But sometimes it offers genius moments. Unexpected combinations of words. Creative interpretations our logical brains would never produce. Hilariously inappropriate statements.

Just recently I suggested that my husband get a cough drop but autocorrect suggested a “cough frog.” Wait what? A cough frog? What could that be about?

In another text, someone told me they were as “giddy as a gourd.” It’s my new go-to phrase.

Autocorrect renamed my son’s teacher to “Mrs. Sewers.” That is a great villain name.

Have you ever had a really good autocorrect that sparked some creativity?
