I can't spell
Now i know I have spelt these words okay, but iwhat i mean is that my writing is all dependent on what words I can and cannot spell, if i want to say something sometimes I have to take the long way around the written conversation to use the word in different tense because i cannot for the life of me think of how to spell the one i really want to use....and that sucks
So then my writing comes out all long and in a depth i never set out to go to just to explain myself. When i was in grade three my mom and my teacher forced me to do extra work everyday after class just so i could grasp the whole spelling thing but it just never really caught on. I say forced because I remember a lot of whining and a lot of pencil throwing on my part. i do have a good memory so that is a bonus but if it is a new word there is no chance i can think of how it would look....
wierd thing is I have gotten mostly A's in english my whole life and I have won a Royal Commonwealth Essay Competition and a School district one as well....all very strange.... not sure why i just thought i would share this little Tanya tidbit..
