Improving your Spelling
Correct spelling, indeed, is one of the arts that are far more esteemed by school ma'ams than by practical men, neck-deep in the heat and agony of the world. - Henry Louis Mencken
This is for computer geeks and others who use a word processor to draft any and every document.
Here's a simple way to improve spelling quickly and effectively:
Visualize: Don't try to remember a word by the sound of it. Look at a word with an intent to remember.
Don't Auto-Correct: Whether you are using MS Word, Gmail or Google Toolbar's spell-check, don't just select the correct spelling from a list of words. Whenever a spelling mistake is pointed out by your software, find out the right spelling from the list of words offered, memorise it and than delete the whole word and re-type the word again every time. Remember, don't just delete and / or correct just the alphabets. Delete the whole word and re-type. In MS Word, be especially sure to turn off auto-correction where common spelling errors are automatically corrected without any intervention from you.
