I’ve been a professional writer for over 25 years, and a blogger for almost twenty years. I’ve written millions and millions of words.

So you’d think I’d be very good at spelling, yes? Mostly, I am! Generally, when I’m writing I blast along at 100 WPM without giving much thought to proper spelling.
