Microsoft Word Actually Being Useful in Self-Editing

Word is where I do most of my initial writing and editing, and there are still little treasures I keep learning about, like this one shared by my talented, humorous, and generous friend, Roger.

Should someone be unwise enough to try and be critical then if they are lucky they just get the cold treatment. As my wife says ‘You’ll not be told’.And I won’t.
