  1. Crystal - Thanks for the spelling challenge! Those are such easy words to miss, too!! And it's those little details than can be distracting when one's trying to read.

  2. I got five right. Where the heck is my editor when I need him?

    Stephen Tremp

  3. I missed one, but had I not known that some of the others were misspelled I probably would have missed them in an edit.

  4. I have been trying to email you from your website to get pricing, but the button doesn't work or I'm slow. I subscribed to the email thing below. Don't know exactly what that means, but maybe you could get hold of me through that or comment on my blog.


  5. Yay 9/10!! I get a bit of a gold star!!! Thank you - this was such fun!!!

    Take care

  6. grrrr...
    One of these days I'm getting the gold.
    All I can say is thank goodness for and those squiggly red lines in Word.

  7. Pits, I missed three. I are not a spelling genie-us!

  8. You know, I think I know how to spell these words until their spelled wrong in front of me! Then I start to question...


  9. I'm glad you all like the Spelling Challenge!

    Old Kitty: Good for you! You'll get that gold star yet!

    Elizabeth: Welcome! I have posted on your blog (as well as decided to be a follower), so you can now reach me. Thank you again for informing me about the button not working on my website!

    Michele: I know! I do the same thing! Honestly I end up making more work for myself while editing when I start to question what I already know!

  10. I know I haven't posted much but you really mean a lot to me. Therefore, I have passed along to you, The One Lovely Blog award. You can check out and pick up the award at:
