Frustrating Autocorrect

March 7, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a robotic writer. Is it an analogy or a battery-operated i-writer? Is it possible? What will happen if robots write? Go where the prompt leads!


Araaggh…., Frustrated, I deleted the words which my over smartphone was inserting in my sentences, again.

It’s a quandary writing on my phone. Spellings have always been my weakness so I’ve turned autocorrect on my settings. But smartphones have become overly smart nowadays. While they do spot my spelling mistakes, they simply butcher the proper nouns I write. Poetry, as I write, is another thing that is not acceptable. It needs to insert punctuations in there.

If I let the robotic writer, my smartphone write by itself, it’ll be gibberish that will amuse you no end, but grammatically correct!


Word count; 99

Written for Carrot Ranch’s Charli Mills 99 word story- Robotic Writer

    1. I will do so Cindy. You should read some of my comments, totally strange because at the last moment my phone changes what I was writing.


    1. Lol! Yup! If you have a smart phone, you can write something by just typing in the next word it suggests. It makes an interesting read. Seldom makes sense. 😂😂😂

  1. I am the same. I turn off all autocorrecting on everything. I will allow some suggestions though. I would rather look up spellings myself 👍👍👍 And I am terrible at spelling and puncuation

  2. Those auto texting on the phone can sure mess things up. Mostly they are funny, and I only text my daughters, so we laugh. It would be a bad thing if it was for business work though. 🙂


    1. Very true. What I hate most of all is that when a type a couple of letters, it shows me options and when I want to click on the one I want, it quickly changes it something else! Like it’s teasing me. 😅😛


  3. Not have a “smart” anything, I don’t run into this particular problem…though I have other tech-issues 🙂 I’m not sure I want robots doing anything…I’ve watched too many science fiction programs 🙂
