Not quite as good for fiction

I've been revising my writing group exercises on paper (with the Digimemo) and uploading them. The OCR software seems to work better for non-fiction. It's not the individual words, because the errors are on words in the dictionary, but perhaps there's some smarts about context that doesn't work for fiction.... at least for the stuff I was trying out. Or else, my handwriting is different for fiction. But there's nothing I can do to improve the recognition training, because the training is with a writing sample that it provides.

Still, in a short piece, it is easier to make a few corrections than to type the whole thing. And I have been writing almost daily.

Hey, good for you! Hang in there, I'm sure it must get easier, or smarter at understanding. :)

I think there's nothing quite like writing every day to make a person feel stronger with every aspect of writing, really. It's sort of amazing that way.
