Ooh, I'll have to check out Lynette's post. :-)

I'll be checking out those links. Thanks, Susan.

I love it when I find a misused word - like meat instead of meet. It gives me a chance to laugh out loud at myself. Because, how silly!

I hope your weekend is great too. Seems like another week just flew by didn't it? Hope your writing is progressing and that you have success in the other areas of your life:)

Hi Heather -

Even though I'm a fast typist, my brain sometimes gets ahead of my fingers. The end result can be hilarious. It's also a good reason for the editing process.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Terri -

The entire month evaporated like dew in the bright morning sun.

I didn't get the school secretary position - back to square one. Otherwise, I'm fine.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Can't wait to see the list of misused words. Hope I'm not guilty!!!

Hey, if you have time, stop by my place today. I posted late but really want to share a poem by Mary Oliver called, "Lead" in light of the Gulf oil spill.

On a brighter note, Happy Weekend!

Blessings,
Patti

Lynnette had a great list of misuded words. I know I get confused on some of them. I wish there were some universal chart we could check before we post. Many times we don't even know we've goofed until it's too late.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Patti -

I'll get over there later today or tomorrow. My day is a bit crazy. :)

Blessings,
Susan

Hi Nancy -

Now there's an idea! Why don't we make up a cheat sheet of all the words that give us a problem?

Have a great weekend.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I'm pretty good when it comes to using the right word, but I tend to be a bit dyslexic when typing and sometimes my brain types the wrong word :-)

Have a great weekend, Susan.

Blessings.

Hi Jean -

Ah, maybe that's my problem. :)
