i'm a prize in a cereal box near you, so buy, BUY,
only to look it up and realize you didn't, i do it all the time which is why i downloaded wordweb to speed up the process of spellchecking.

Constantly. It makes me feel like I'm a bad speller, then like I'm a good speller, and then like I've the memory of a goldfish.

Depends on the medium and the investment that I made to proofread my work.

If it's just a misspelling on an online post then no biggie. However, if they're in an official document... :eek:

Somewhere in time, relative to you.
All the time. Sometimes I spell a set of words correctly, and at other times I will misspell those same words wrong. It depends on my frame of mind. If I’m preoccupied with something, I misspell. If I am trying to think too hard about what I’m saying, I misspell. If I wake up still twilighting, I misspell sometimes and at other times have lucid prose that gives me a buzz.

Other times words come off the fingertips as if I’m on a rail. The dogs and cat can be fighting, I don’t misspell. The loonies outside can be making a ruckus, I don’t misspell. Iv’e got the Jones’, I don’t misspell.

I don’t know why, nor do I worry too much about it. Language is about meaning, and is only a conventional medium.

It makes me feel like I'm my own problem. I'm right but I can hardly believe it. More frustrating than disheartening.

All the time, i an awful speller and tend to spell things phonetically and my grammar is horrendous. My thought on it is that spelling requires a great deal of remembering bits of knowledge, im much better at understanding a concept and using that understanding to come up with answers. That being said there's no way you can use a system of understanding to figure out how to spell the many different words in the english language.
I dont know about other browsers but if you use chrome, you can left click the type field and select spell check options and select Ask Google. This has helped me fix hundreds of grammatical errors.
