Spelling and Grammar how good is yours

Updated on January 26, 2010

Spelling and Grammar how good is yours

I don’t know about anyone else who is writing here on Hubpages but my spelling and grammar as never been much good. I’ve never been that good at spelling or grammar but I’ve always have something to say. I just don’t know how to put it down into words and it makes sense. I’d love to write like so many of you out there.


Word blindness or Dyslexia as it’s called. It’s never stopped me from trying to write or wanting to write. There are times when I’ve written something and then read it through and it seems ok. Its not until later when I read it again I see terrible mistakes in it. Thinking to myself, god glad I didn’t email or sent that one. So coming here to hubpages is a big thing for me. However I hope that with writing more the better I will become.

I’m ok with writing on my own away from other people, I can do it, I just have to take my time and think about what I’m putting and so on. If you put me into a room with other people or someone watching what I’m writing, I can’t do it. Confidents is the main thing and something that I lack. I’m never been confident when someone is watching me write something down, even if its my address. I guess people who have this will know what I’m trying to say.

It can effect everyone

Did I read or see on the news the the other week, that “the fonz” from happy days, henry winkler as dyslexia? I’m sure that he was in the uk the other week chatting about it. So you see even famous people have deslexia. We tend to hide it, trying not to let other people know that we can’t do things right. I know it’s a shame but live is crule at times and people will make fun of it. Make fun of what you have written, or when to miss read something.

I’ve could across two progames that may help other people, I’ve only just come acoss them which I’ve started to use. I’ve often in the past written really long sentceses and not realizing it. And it also helps with spelling and grammar. Well these two programes will help you. Than again if you reading this you may already be good at writing and that you may not need help. But I’m sure we all need some help at times.

I’m using at the moment stylewriter, its on a 30-day trail, after that you will need to buy. The other one is whitesmoke, which you can get a 3-day trail both are as good as each other. Do a search for them online. Perhaps give them ago, I was shocked when I first used them. Shocked to see how bad my writing was. Since I’ve started to use the progame, my writing as become better.

I just wanted to share this with everyone, I’m sure it will be useful somewhere, specailly if your not good at grammar or spelling.


Take care and have fun
