Doesn’t like spellcheck

23 Mar, 2015

At the red carpet premiere of Season 5 of Game of Thrones, Martin says he will continue to use Wordstar 4.0, the 1980s-era word processor, saying he doesn’t need spellcheck features of modern word processors:

Until they come up with something better, which they haven’t…Don’t help me. I’ve been writing for a long time…And don’t change my spelling….I don’t need things underlined in red, like ‘Targaryen. I know how to spell ‘Targaryen.’ Don’t tell me it’s misspelled.
