“It’s a damn poor mind that can only think of one way to spell a word.”
Do you find your spelling skills wane over time? I am always second guessing myself these days. Words that I once spelled with confidence suddenly look funny and there are days I keep www.dictionary.com open in a tab on my computer. Funny thing is, most of the time, I’m right the first time.
Wonder if this is a side effect of writing in public so much these days? With blogs, websites, forums–we spend so much time putting ourselves out there, it’s probably natural to worry about putting that stray misspelled word in view. I’ve happened on some biggies in past blog posts.
But, if you’re ever feeling you lack skills in this area, I have a tip.
