Work On Mistakes

November 22, 2022

It's been a long time since I wrote anything here. Didn't want. And had no time. But the main reason was the necessity in checking my own writing.

Long ago I noticed Gwern Branwen uses ispell and proselint, and he looks a native American speaker. But me, I'm not an American, I need these tools much more. So I integrated them.

My spelling was a shame. Sometimes I hit wrong keys and did not notice, that's not so bad. Worse when I invented new forms of words and fuckingly amazed my readers. Fixed immediately.

Proselint caught a lot as well, but I fixed only three: replaced meantime with meanwhile, deleted duplicate for, and added a hyphen. All the rest was related to typography, exclamations, cliché, and use of obscene lexis. Okay, I won't. I'll try to.
