NaNoWriMo – One Thing I’m NOT Doing


So, for this blog post, this is me using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to dictate without any editing. So far so good. But if this goes like everyone in my other experiments than these words within a completely jumbled and out of whack.

See. Just like that.

I’m considering whether or not I should use Dragon Fernanda Reimann [TRANSLATION: for NaNoWriMo]. So far it’s not looking too promising. I’ll look another complete sentence that was written correctly. And that should be “oh” not I’ll. So frustrating.

Something is coming more of a pain in the bot or a headache that it is going to be helpful. See? That line doesn’t even make any sense. If I enunciate like I’m in speech therapy, then it will type perfectly like this sentence. But oh my gosh I can’t talk like that for an entire novel. [But see their, entitled the previous sentence correctly. But not this one. And it misspelled their. Again.]

So even though I might be fun to try and use Dragon, I believe the editing would be a nightmare. I don’t think it’s really do work Fernanda Reimann.

  1. That made me laugh out loud. It reminds me of that game, Mad Libs, where you read off a sentence that’s written in homophones. I love that game, even if I’m not very good at it.

    Fernanda Reimann. Maybe you should name your MC that, at least for the month of November.


    • Haha! After the initial frustration, I was saying stuff just to see how Dragon would twist it.

      And I googled “Fernanda Reimann” just to see if there’s a real person with that name. Yep. At least one, down in Chile.


  2. Yes- dragon is awful. The voice recognition on iPhone is amazing. I use it when I’m driving or just don’t want to type. The. I email it to myself and copy paste it to my document. Cause you never know when an idea is going to charge the gate.
