Spelling Bee drop out

I am a terrible speller! There—that's out now. Sigh. I feel so much better after that confession. I guess every writer has a weakness—spelling is definitely one of mine (I have plenty).

If it weren’t for automatic spell check my writing may be unreadable. In fact I use Google Chrome because it shows me misspellings anywhere I type on the internet.

I want to be a better speller. I actually try and get better—and I am doing it slowly. But—there are words I can never spell no matter how hard I try:

  • Necessary: I spell it necissary
  • Prejudice: I spell it predjuice
  • Throat: I spell it throut
  • Shoulder: I spell it sholdure
  • Definitely: I spell it definatley
  • Jealous: I spell it jelouse
  • Gorgeous: I spell it goregouse

I’ve noticed that letters are my problem—the wrong ones—in the wrong places. LOL. That's the definition of misspelling :)

I’m telling you I practice these words but for some reason they don’t stick—I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve told myself pre-jud-ice. My husband finds this one of my funniest quirks. We at least he likes it ;)
