H = Homonyms!





I have this problem of mixing up similar words on drafts and then never finding the little buggers. It used to bother me a lot. I would beat myself up over it (See letter G.) The problem is when you've read your own story over and over again - one is just too close to notice simple mistakes. But I've learned to not care and just do the best I can with it. Part of my editing process is to search for these words and make sure they’re right. This link is to a list of all the homonyms. It’s well organized and easy to use.

I just listen to the Robot Chicken song on homonyms

Cindy, the comments are closed on your I post.
And I KNOW I commented on this yesterday, but where did it go...?

Cindy said...

That's strange. Not sure what happened. Something got switched on my other post and I fixed it. Maybe there was a glitch?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Probably a glitch. And I really did comment here. I even included your post in mine tomorrow since that homonyms link is really awesome.
