WHAT HAS COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY DONE FOR YOU? The Daily Post Challenge throws this challenge to those interested in writing and that is something bloggers seem to want to do. Well, a few photograper-type bloggers are in the mix, mainly those of us on this path are writers or wannabe writers. Even though I have had two books published by well thought of publishers, I classify myself as a wanna-be. By my definition, real authors write good novels, not necessary great, but good and that is why I am a wanna be.
I make it clear every where I write publicly that I have dysgraphia, for four reasons:
- to educate those who don’t know some of us struggle with something akin to dyslexia when it comes to writing; I am particularly hopeful, some who struggle with writing will consider dysgraphia as the problem, not being lazy or stupid or careless; I also hope those who think those of us who have problems with spelling, punctuation and such will be a bit more understanding;
- to warn those who get driven crazy by misspellings and mis-punctuations to not read what I have to say; it isn’t worth the stress.
- to serve as a model for fighting the stigma attached to such labels;
- some might also think my having published serves as a a role model for others with dysgraphia; perhaps, but not, not without lots of help and some of that help came from technology. So back to Daily Challenge question
Topic #281: Does technology help you write?
Well, as always, I’ve changed the question to suit my thoughts. I am answering the question, what has computer technology done for you?
So much, tears of gratitude fill my eyes when I think about how different my life would have been. . No books published. No hope of more publishing to come. No learning more and more and more helpful stuff. No sharing when lots of others what I have found interesting or helful. No contact with distant friends, no new friends across the world. At the saying goes: “Computers have been very good to me.” Thank you all the nerds of the world
Share, care, and grow strong.
