Grammarly is a web tool that checks my writing for spelling and grammar mistakes. All I do is upload or cut-n-paste my writing to the editor app, and Grammarly does the rest.

Not to fear: I’ve already added National Grammar Day to my 2016 planner. Next year, we’ll celebrate properly! In the meantime, every day is Grammar Day on my Pinterest board called Word Nerd. Check it out!
