I have to lock the internal editor in a closet somewhere with a bunch of books on the iPad and a box of chocolates. Ever have one of those days where the squiggly lines in Word compel you to focus on them until the sentence structure is correct? My internal editor and I have had many an argument about the validity of some things including dialog.
IE: That is a fragmented sentence. Oh, and you should fix that apostrophe. It will up the word count.
Me: I don't care. That's how Ryan talks.
IE: That is how Ryan talks.
Me: That's what I said.
IE: No you did not.
Get my meaning? Short of turning off spelling and grammar check how do you ignore the squiggly lines? And wordiness. Seriously? Eleven words is wordy? Really?
