Commonly Misspelled Words: How Many Can You Spell Correctly?

Commonly Misspelled Words. The bane of my existence. Hey! Just being honest!! But you know what? Writing this post gives me the giggles because it’s all just so sad! I hate to admit that even though I am a writer, there are so many words that I cannot spell when left to my own devices. Thank GOODNESS for Grammarly! That tool is a life saver.

Back to commonly misspelled words. I asked my Facebook friends what words they have trouble spelling and guess what? I couldn’t spell ANY of them correctly on my own. EEK!
