Computers in writing
One can write more effectively by means of a computer. A computer allows the user to create documents, edit, print, and store them so that they can be retrieved later. There are tools like spelling and grammar checker, thesaurus and dictionary, installed in the computer. So, it takes less time to proofread a written document. Also, there is no need to open up a dictionary book to look for meanings of words. If there is a need for reorganizing the sentences or paragraphs, one can cut and paste and make the necessary changes.
Computers make the world we live easier.
