    The secret is to read it quickly - just like you read most stuff anyway.
    I am sure that is why so much written stuff gets away with bad spelling etc.,

    If you're ever taught to speed read, they tell you eventualy to just scan straight down the middle of the page and the brain still absorbs the information...the brain is amazing!

    Yes, and how many times do you need to reread when you realise that you have no idea what the last page said?

    Speed read's method of scanning down the middle of the page is pretty good but wouldn't be much use with a page of that kind of stuff...

    No, I was taught it for research; when you've got a pile of books and you're looking for a certain keyword you can skim down the page and stop only if (in my case) you see the words 'piano' or 'tuner' or 'tuning'. No good for novels though! :)

    Sat here listening to Eminem's new album ( :great: ) and watching outside get lighter and lighter...my body clock is totally ruined at the moment. I can't sleep until around 6am, am shattered when i wake up around 12, but then don't feel tired by the time bed time rolls around again so end up staying up even later... *yawn*

    I get my b and d's mixed up all the time.
    I have to copy what i say n check for spelling,some chat boards, you get small minded people who comment on how you write. at least i've try,

    If you try to do something that you find hard,people shouldn't put you down for it.. but i found no on like that on hear,

    My spelling, typing, grammer etc all used to be excellent until I stopped working as a PA. Its all gone to pot now! (Mind you, this keyboard has a mind of its own and misses letters and spaces when it feels like it!)

    If you were writing a piece for publication then fair enough, but you're not. You're chatting to us so don't worry about it. We understand Vicki after all!! ;)

    Sara that is wonderful good on you and keep reading anything and everything girl. I love reading so much.

    I used to write the newsletter for our theatre group, I have worked and written for the local paper, had short stories published and written book reviews for childrens books. I am a member of Geelong Writers and also part of an online writers forum.
    I love short stories and poetry especially with a wicked twist as I have a warped sense of humour.

    I write parodies too, perhaps taking a Xmas carol for example and rewritng the words to relate to say family or co workers and then it is sung at a Xmas party, funny naughty stuff.

    I am currently working on a story for my 6 year old grand daughter Isabelle and will dedicate it to her. My hubby has his own digital prinintg business run from home here so I can have it printed up nicely in time for Christmas.
    By the way I live in Geelong in Victoria, Australia.:yay_jump:
