Responding in Expletives

This is another one of those days when I don’t have a clue as to what to write. As I finished that sentence, my Grammarly program highlighted it. That is a strong hint that the AI has found a problem with the way it is phrased. I began using the program when I became serious about completing my book “Space Rod.” It definitely has a different voice than I do. My style is no longer prevalent in many of the posts because I opted to go with the AI robot’s version. As an example, in the first sentence, I wrote, “This is another one of those days when I don’t have a clue as to what to write.” The robot suggests that I say, This is another one of those days when I don’t know what to write. Supposedly, the AI version makes the sentence more understandable and transparent as to what I said. There are times when I like the way I speak and want to keep my own phraseology because it defines me. The last sentence has been highlighted and I choose to dismiss the AI suggestion. It makes me sound like a PhD English Grammar Major, and I am not. In fact, I am so far away from an English Major I sound like a foreigner.

Anyway, if you want to learn how to write clearly, I recommend you use this program or something like it. I accept the changes it recommends about 95% of the time. When I write, my fingers fly on the keys, but the output is scrambled, but I get my ideas down. The program allows me to return and correct the two-finger typing gibberish to be readable and, more importantly, understandable. The one thing I really love about the robot is that he/she/it knows how to use a comma. Clearly, I don’t. Also, AI dislikes using extra adjectives and pronouns to embellish my thoughts. As an example, in the sentence above, I wrote, “I really love,” and the robot wants me to strike the word “really.” Honestly, the robot does not have a soul. Why else does it choose to be so judgmental about my use of adjectives? It is a good thing the program doesn’t speak. I’d would be answering in expletives.
