F is For... Fragment (Consider Revising)

That is one of the most annoying things I find when writing. You write a sentence, a squiggly green line appears underneath it to say that there is something grammatically incorrect about it.

So you click on it and instead of telling you what exactly is grammatically incorrect with it all you get is 'fragment (consider revising)'.

If it is so clever that it can point out to me that it is not right then why can't it tell me how to correct it?

This is the reason why when I took part in NaNoWriMo last year that I switched off the spelling and grammar checker - otherwise it would have driven me insane! I was probably insane to start with, to say that I would write 50k words in a month but that would have tipped me over the edge!
