So, I’ll be straightforward–this is research for something I’m working on.
But I also thought it would just be fun.
I want to know what words you mess up all the time. Words and phrases that, for whatever reason, you’ve flubbed, or ALWAYS flub.
It can be the tiniest things like: the/teh, form/from–the ones you do by accident all the time.
Or the big whopping, Freudian slip kind. Even the not-so-funny words/phrases you’ve misused. And there doesn’t have to be a story attached.
But–bonus points if they are sexy 😉 (OK, I’m not really awarding points…it’s not a contest, it’s just for kicks. And my research purposes, of course. LOL)
And I swear, this isn’t because I have a thing for finding typos in other people’s work so that I feel better about my own mistakes. I swear. 😀
So, I’ll lead–I have HUGE homophone issues. Thank goodness I re-read my shit carefully. Aloud/Allowed, Break/Brake.
And here’s a good one (not mine, btw, just one I heard about once): Because of where the K and L fall on the keyboard, it’s easy to accidentally type the word Kegal (which sounds a whole lot like kegel when you read it allowed<—Ha! see what I did there ;)) when you mean to type the word “legal”. *snicker*
This one is mine all mine: Note to writers, if you didn’t already know this, nothing pulls the reader out of a hot sex scene faster than when the MMC runs his hand down the FMC’s waste. *shudders* Just…ew.
