I don't know about you, but I needed a break from grammar rules! I've got ideas for more, and will get back to them eventually, but wanted to focus on something else I love. Typos! My mom found a really good one, posted it on Facebook, and had a lot of people respond with their own funny typos.

I want to compile some of the best from your writing, my writing, or anything we've come across. Leave yours in a comment and I'll publish the compiled list in a few days.


  1. One of my all-time favorites from my own books, which was happily caught before the book went to press:
    The phrase was supposed to read "a well-mannered gentleman" but, instead, read thus, "a well-manured gentleman."
    Well-manured? I don't even want to know what that entails.

  2. From my latest story: "We lead deeply spiritual lies here." That was supposed to be deeply spiritual "lives."

  3. I wish I could think of a good one, but the only one that comes to mind is, "Let's eat Grandpa!" instead of, "Let's eat, Grandpa!" That's an oldie, but goodie.
    How are things? I hope you're Chronicles of Edana are coming along nicely.
    I'm having a 100 followers contest on my blog. Come say hi. :)

  4. When I worked at my TV station in Idaho, we would sometimes be in a hurry to get graphics ready for the newscasts. There was a show on CBS at the time called "Public Eye". Sadly, one day our graphic person put together a last minute graphic to promote it and in their haste left out the letter "l" of the first word. Oh dear . . .
