I recently discovered Jodie Renner’s handy, clickable e-resource, Spelling on the Go – Commonly Misspelled Words at Your Fingertips. This is a fantastic resource for authors! Whether you’re a journalist, fiction or nonfiction writer, student, blogger, editor, or anyone else on a busy schedule (aren’t we all these days?), this clickable spelling list will save you tons of time. Not 100 percent sure of the spelling of a word, or whether it’s hyphenated or capitalized? Keep this resource on your screen or beside you on your Kindle or tablet or smartphone, then just click on the first two letters, check the word quickly, and you’re back to your writing project within seconds.
Available at Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.
